Over the past few weeks, a lot has been said about the arrival of a new type of smartphone, with scrollable screens. Until now, we had 3 manufacturers in the race for the title of “first smartphone with a scrollable screen”, namely Oppo, LG and TCL. However, new information seems to indicate that Samsung may surprise everyone and everything.
The tweet published by the leaker Ice Universe does not arrive accompanied by any concrete evidence, but its history should be more than enough to be taken seriously.
Samsung never shows immature concept products to the public. But Samsung is often the first to turn the concept into reality.

The leaker recalled that Samsung never demonstrated any unfinished prototype of its products to the public. However, it often turns out to be the first manufacturer to make a prototype a reality.
Smartphones with a scrollable screen may not arrive in 2021
Ice Universe goes even further in a second publication, where it states that the technology that allows the construction of these smartphones is still in the testing phase. Considering that it is still a long way from being ready for mass production, it is most likely that 2021 will be the real year of “folding smartphones”.
Although we have already seen several smartphones in the market reach this market, there are only 3 relevant manufacturers that bet on foldable smartphones.
The scroll screen mobile phone is only a laboratory test product. It is far from being mass-produced. Next year, it will still be the stage of Fold. Huawei, Xiaomi, OPPO, etc. will release their own “Fold”

We continue to wait for the remaining manufacturers Chinese companies finally decide to get on the “train”. Thus, it is very likely that in 2021 we will see the first foldable smartphone from Xiaomi, OPPO and perhaps even from Realme.
Not wanting to surprise its fans, everything indicates that Apple will once again be the last to venture into this new type of smartphones. Several rumors point to the launch of Apple’s first foldable smartphone only on 2022.
