Flip phones will make a comeback

Flip phones will make a comeback in mid 2014. Not sure if actual phones wil get released, but for sure, buzz for flip phones will make a come back. As I’ve drawn in the diagram above, flip phones will come in wedge shapes when closed, and very tall when opened. This will allow fo ultra wide smartphones that will give you extra screen real estate.

The phone will snap open and snap close like regular flip phones. Most likely Samsung and Sony will pursue this form factor first.

My prediction:

Proof of concepts will be shown mid 2014, actual release in late 2015 or first quarter 2016.
