The jury is still out as to whether or not foldable phones could be the next big thing. Samsung’s Galaxy Fold was not exactly launched to great success, meaning that companies that plan to launch their own foldable phone would essentially be taking a pretty big risk. It looks like HMD Global plans on doing just that.
According to a report from Nokia Mob, they have heard from a source that HMD Global apparently plans on dipping their toes into the foldable smartphone waters, where they could be working on a foldable Nokia branded smartphone that could be launched in either the later part of 2020, or possibly early 2021.
Details about the phone are scarce, but essentially this will be a foldable smartphone. Whether it takes the form of the Galaxy Fold where it is a smartphone-tablet hybrid, or if it could adopt a clamshell design akin to the Motorola Razr remains to be seen. It is possible that given that back in the day, Nokia did come up with flip devices like the Nokia Communicator, perhaps HMD could be looking to revive a classic.
Safe to say that since none of this can be verified at this point in time, it’s probably best to take it with a grain of salt for now.
