26 Percent of iPhone Users have NO Interest in a Foldable Phone Despite Manufacturers Pushing Hard for it

Various leading smartphone companies have been working on rolling out models based on the foldable display design. And in order to ensure that such phones sell, there’s a chance their price would be considerably lower.

If reports are to be believed, Apple is also focused on launching a foldable iPhone over the next two years. However, it appears that iPhone users aren’t too excited about getting their hands on a foldable phone.

As per a study conducted by YouGov, the majority of iPhone owners are content with the current form factor. Over one in four (26%) Apple users stated they have no interest at all in owning a foldable phone. 22% said that they aren’t too excited. On the other hand, only 13% expressed interest in the idea of a foldable iPhone.

It appears that Apple’s main competitor in the smartphone sector, Samsung is also struggling to get its users interested in the foldable form factor. 22% of people who own Samsung devices claimed that they have absolutely no interest in a foldable smartphone. Only 15% are interested in one.

However, it seems like the lack of interest won’t hinder Samsung’s interest in foldables. It turns out that the company is working on rolling out new phones (foldable) before the end of this year. Moreover, prices are expected to be quite lower to boost sales.

As per the President & Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics, Dr. TM Roh, the introduction of foldable models would help legitimize Samsung’s quest for staying ahead of the curve. Moreover, he said that the said phones will come with a super-intelligent, pro-grade camera.

Even though an official release date hasn’t been announced yet, it’s rumored that Samsung can launch foldable phones as early as this summer. An official event for the same purpose might take place during the end of Q2 or the beginning of Q3 2021.
