Samsung Looks To Expand Business

So it means that Google, Xiaomi, and Vivo are all gearing up to launch their line of foldable smartphones in the market. Not only that, the source suggests, OPPO is also in talks with Samsung with the supplies but a phone from OPPO will likely be seen in 2022.
Google however is planning to launch Google Fold by the end of this year. It will likely have a 7.6″ in-folding display. On the other hand Vivo’s phone will consist of an 8″ foldable panel but the dimensions of Xiaomi‘s phones are unknown.
While Samsung has struck a deal to supply both OLED and UTG for other companies, it will likely use it for its upcoming Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Z Flip 3 to be revealed shortly.
