Next year, the first smartphones with flexible screens should appear on the market. Only 3.1 million of such displays are expected to be delivered in total, but by 2022 the market will grow to 63 million.
But devices with flexible displays, especially in the early years of sales, will be even more expensive than the current flagships. Experts call the price at $ 2,000, while the top versions of conventional smartphones go to about $ 1,500. The wow factor of the foldable screen itself will not attract an audience, experts say.
The main interest will be applications and exclusive features of devices with flexible displays.
The appearance of serial smartphones with curving screens is expected in early 2019. Huawei and Samsung will present their new products.
