The size of the foldable phone market had surpassed US.8 billion in 2021

NEWARK, Del, November 7, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global Flip phone market was worth US$6.8 Bn a year in 2021 and is expected to witness a dynamic CAGR of 25.2% between 2021 and 2031.

The flip phone, as the name suggests, folds in and/or out. In the transmission of energy through OLEDs and organic compounds of electronic paper, these phones do radiate their own light. This, in turn, makes foldable phones more flexible and slimmer.

Certain devices unfold in a vertical plane to form a wider screen (like a tablet), but can be used in a smaller, folded state. This screen is capable of rolling towards the back of the smartphone when folded. The phone could even be used as a brochure-like structure where a wider folded screen is placed on the inner surface. In addition, the ‘cover’ display allows users to use the smartphone without opening it.
