Samsung and Huawei are not the only ones to engage in the foldable phone train. Almost everyone does it, including OPPO, Xiaomi and even Microsoft. The ones you do not think of doing are those who have trouble staying afloat. And yet, surprisingly enough, it seems that Sony is doing just that. Better yet, it will have a "Design Nautilus" that can be rolled up while others can hardly make simple foldable screens.
Sony is without a doubt the last company you can count on working on a foldable phone. It's not in the red, but its mobile business has seen better days. It specializes in LCDs, which may be a bad choice for flexible displays. Finally, the goals announced by Sony for its smartphones are to be entertainment devices, which is probably not suitable for such folding devices.
And yet, that's what Sony says, according to Max J., a.k.a.Samsung_News_. The Twitter user is more popular for his leaks on Samsung, so it's a little surprising that he is now leaking on Sony. As with any leak, take it with a grain of salt.
According to information, the Sony phone will run on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 with an X50 modem. It will have a battery of 3230 mAh and a 10x zoom camera, which no Sony phone has yet. The most interesting, however, is the note on a "Nautilus Design," hinting at a roll-up screen much like what Samsung showed three years ago, instead made by LG.
Even more impressive, Max J claims that Sony could launch the phone in late December or early 2020. If it succeeds, it will only be a miracle that will allow Sony to come back into the news, even if it's only for a short time.
