It wouldn’t be wrong to say that 2023 has been the year of foldable phones. Google, OnePlus, OPPO, Motorola, Xiaomi and even the tech giant Samsung, all in a race to introduce new foldable phones. You can almost say that there is hardly a smartphone maker that will not launch a foldable device this year. Is it not? However, the newcomer Nothing thinks very differently from the others. The company appears to be in no rush to jump on the bandwagon. It means that there are very small chances of getting one foldable nothing phone. Let’s dive in.
Will foldable nothing phone ever be launched?
We already had a few rumors about a foldable phone from Nothing. However, Nothing chief Carl Pei recently spoke about the company’s disinterest in launching a foldable phone, putting the rumors to rest. According to Carl Pei:
“Foldable phones are niche products.”
When Nothing Ceo was asked about the company’s plans to launch a foldable phone, he said, “Not anytime soon.” He further added:
“It’s good that some people are building it, but if you look at how foldable handsets evolve, they’re all the same again. If you don’t see the logo anymore, you hide the logo on the foldable, I don’t think a consumer can really tell them apart.”
The point worth noting is that he doesn’t think consumers are walking around saying, hey, I wish my phone could fold. According to him, the manufacturers are pushing this innovation to the consumer. Its stance on foldable phones is a clear indication that we won’t see a foldable phone from Nothing anytime soon. Maybe never. The director has put an end to all rumors about a possible foldable phone from Nothing. However, let me tell you that the direction of the wind is changing very quickly in the tech industry. If it’s not soon, nothing will stop us launching a foldable tablet next year or the year after that. What do you think? 😉
