Intel is looking into foldable OLED laptops, will not arrive before 2021

GizChina reports that senior executives at Intel said that the company is looking at laptops with foldable OLED displays, working together with LG Display, Samsung Display, BOE and Sharp. There are many challenges to overcome, and Intel estimates that such foldable laptops will not arrive before 2021.

In October 2018 Samsung Electronics said that it is developing laptops with foldable displays, while other reports suggested that that LG Display is collaborating with Lenovo to develop a 13" foldable tablet.

Samsung has recently started to produce foldable smartphone OLED displays - but ran into difficulties and had to delay the launch of the Galaxy Fold. Samsung is also producing 15.6 laptop OLED displays - but only rigid ones as of today.
