Xperia F: Sony may launch its first foldable smartphone in 2020

By  Jocelyn Longoria 2019-05-29 763 0

Sony would launch the Xperia F, its first ever folding smartphone, in 2020. The Japanese manufacturer, whose sales are at half mast in the mobile market, would have decided to use the same OLED display that Samsung used for its Galaxy Fold. Not surprisingly, the terminal would also be compatible with 5G. An update was provided on the first available information.

The MySmartPrice site, whose information is often targeted, relays a "report from China" that assures Sony that it is currently working on a folding smartphone project called Xperia F. The F would obviously refer to "Fold" as foldable in French, in the same way as Samsung's Galaxy Fold.

To design its foldable smartphone, Sony would use the same OLED Infinity Flex display that is already available on Samsung's Galaxy Fold. This screen would benefit from a 21:9 ratio, like the Xperia 1 or Xperia 10 Plus announced at MWC 2019. The Japanese firm is obviously not ready to abandon this new elongated format. Like the Mate X or Fold, the Xperia F would be compatible with the 5G. It would be the brand's first smartphone to connect to 5G. In the past, Sony has already ensured that a compatible device was in the boxes.

In the meantime, Sony also intends to unveil the Xperia 2, its new high-end flagship. We can therefore legitimately expect the Japanese brand to launch its folding smartphone as part of the MWC 2020. Sony is indeed a regular at high-tech trade fairs such as MWC or the IFA in Berlin.

Will the Xperia F project enable Sony to make a strong comeback in the smartphone market? As the mobile division is largely loss-making, the Japanese manufacturer has decided to withdraw from many markets around the world. We'll tell you more as soon as possible.
