More Foldable Report Highlights – 37 Foldables in the Market this Year, CoE Panels from China, Multi-Fold Coming and More
We published our Quarterly Foldable/Rollable Display Shipment and Technology Report last week and it is clear 2023 will be a busy year for foldables. While 19 different foldable smartphone models had shipments in 2022 from seven different brands. In 2023, DSCC expects to see at least 37 different models ship in 2023 from 10 different brands with Google, OnePlus and Tecno entering the mix as brands look to breathe new life into the stagnant smartphone market. At least 16 different clamshell models are expected along with at least 20 different in-folding (book-type) models and one new out-folding model. While the foldable smartphone market is heating up, DSCC reports delays in foldable notebooks with a number of models expected in Q4’23 pushed out to 2024 due to the weak IT market this year.
