ZTE has recently launched the world’s first sleek design dual-display foldable smartphone. The move has apparently forced other smartphone manufacturers to expedite the process of manufacturing the foldable smartphones. According to the industry sources, Huawei, Samsung and Oppo have set their eyes on the foldable smartphone market and kicked off their process to launch their first foldable smartphone in 2018, ushering in the era of the dual-display smartphones.

The move by ZTE has apparently irked all the leading smartphone vendors and has resulted in the renewed interest in foldable smartphones that can sport two display instead of one. The sources of Digitimes, another online publishing company, claim that among all the smartphone vendors, Samsung Oppo and Huawei have started showing up a great interest in launching their first foldable smartphone sometime in 2018.

It’s been over a year when Samsung, the world’s largest smartphone vendor, first introduced the dual-screen concept phone. Despite, the Korean electronics behemoth is yet to provide any clear visibility on the roadmap of its first foldable smartphone. It’s expected that among all the vendors who have pulled their socks up, Samsung must be leading the pack considering the fact that the company has been working on the foldable technology for years now.

The aforementioned source also claims that Huawei, world’s second largest smartphone vendor, is also working on the foldable phone with few amazing camera features. The device could take the competition in the smartphone industry to a whole new level. Offlate, Huawei has done some impressive work with the camera that has resulted in a great success of Honor 8 series and P9 smartphone.

The Chinese smartphone major, Oppo also doesn’t want to lag behind in the next wave of innovation in the smartphone industry. The company has reportedly filed a patent in China for a foldable display phone. The device, however, is not the dual-display in the true sense. It has a front camera that could be folded back to make it work as a rear camera. Something similar Oppo launched a few years back, but this time Oppo is making the most of its dual selfie camera, the company has been producing for long. The device is expected to feature ‘Beauty Artificial Intelligence Technology’ – recently introduced in Oppo F5 smartphone – that will make the camera more powerful and admiring either as a selfie or rear camera.

Samsung, Huawei and Oppo are not the only ones working on a foldable smartphone though. LG Display is working on the various foldable display. Industry analysts believe that LG would reboot itself in the smartphone market with jaw-dropping features in foldable smartphones to acquire back its lost ground.

Whatsoever, 2018 is going to be exciting as there could be a lot more action in the smartphone industry.
