ZTE launched a foldable smartphone, ZTE Axon M featuring dual 5.5-inch display. The two displays of the phone are joint together to work simultaneously that fold from the place of joining. If you wish to buy a foldable phone you can opt for Axon M but with reports of big players in the smartphone industry ready to come up with their bendable smartphone it is worth waiting for some more time.
Samsung is reportedly working on a foldable smartphone. The company unveiled a bendable display a couple of years back and is reported to come with its first foldable smartphone, Galaxy X next year. And now, Apple has been reported to be working on its own foldable smartphone. The report said that the mysterious new foldable iPhone will debut in 2020.

In a new report, Apple has allegedly filed a patent that describes an Electronic Device With Flexible Displays. The patent was filed by Apple on September 22, 2016. The patent application reveals that the foldable iPhone will have an all screen design that would bend around a specified axis.

The potential display technology to be used in such a device are micro-LEDs replaced from LCD, OLED or AMOLED display.
