Sony is Reportedly Launching a Foldable Phone Next Year and We're as Excited as You'd Expect

Sony really isn't letting go of its smartphone business. It's like a dog with a tiny bone that's picked clean and is on the verge of shattering into a million pieces. The company is reportedly working on a foldable phone, because that seems like a worthwhile resource investment when you've made an operating loss of £698.1m in the smartphone market. Chinese website CMNO seems to think that the Sony Xperia F - for foldable - is coming to customers in the remaining four territories that the company will be catering to going forwards with its phone business in 2020.

The device is rumoured to have a flexible OLED display like the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the super tall screens its line of smartphones are known for, allowing for 21:9 displays. Sony's flagship Xperia 1 showcases what Sony claims is the world’s first 4K HDR OLED display, but there's no word on whether we'll see this in the foldable Xperia F. That's about all the rumour mill has churned out about that for now, but we'll keep you updated if Sony decides to drop the official word. [Ubergizmo]
