Samsung bet on folding while Apple was watching! Why? – Whether you like the brand or not, this South Korean giant is one of the most important manufacturers in the industry since 1969! In fact, we are talking about the company responsible for one of the first tablets ever, having been created many years before the tablet was something desired by consumers. Now see (I already had S-Pen!: P):
That is, Samsung knew something about mobile technology, long before Apple entered this market. In addition, we are also talking about a manufacturer that has been producing its own screens for many years. Not only for its products, but also for rivals in the smartphone world, where we have to include Apple and its iPhone.
Samsung started betting on flexible screens in 2010/2011, with the first product based on this component to arrive as early as 2013!
So if you think Samsung's flexible screens have just started to be used on the Galaxy Fold and Z-Flip, you are very wrong. This was the first smartphone to feature the technology, being launched in 2013:
Immediately followed by this one in 2014:
Galaxy Note Edge
And finally, we had the Galaxy S6 Edge, which made a real splash in the smartphone market. And in fact, it made the whole market go after the curvature on the screen!
Well, while Samsung was playing around the curves and between curves, Apple was betting on the iPhone 5 and 5S, moving very little on the screen of their smartphones until the year 2017 arrived, where we welcomed the iPhone X A smartphone that curiously uses a flexible Samsung screen, folding the screen at the bottom edge to avoid the famous 'chin' of the Android world.
Flexible screen folded on the bottom of the iPhone
Samsung already has two foldables on the market! However, Apple hasn't even shown a single prototype yet.
Yes, there are many rumors and ‘analysts’ saying that Apple is developing its own foldable iPhone. However, so far we have not had any proof of that. It is just the "say you said". In short, in response to the title, although Apple is often called 'innovative', the truth is that in this world, Samsung has been looking to innovate for 8/9 years in a row.
In fact, it is very likely that any foldable iPhone that is ever launched, will come equipped with a Samsung screen. Which turns out to be quite curious.
