    Yup. When Apple patented the wraparound screen, Samsung (again) crapped out a product to beat them to market, It was called the Galaxy Edge and had no reason to exist. Meanwhile Apple used the tech for iPhones, Apple Watch and I believe Apple Park.
    ...
    Really shows you the difference between the critical inventor and the sloppy copycat.

    Fact check:

    • 8th of January 2013: Samsung shows Youm concept which was the basis for Note Edge at CES 2013 (8th to 11th of January 2913). That device looks pretty similar o Note Edge.
    • February 2013: the first time Apple reveals patents for wraparound displays

    Hm, who copied from whom?

    What we learn from the above:

    • Just because Apple patents something, it does not mean that the idea has not existed before.
    • A patent is like a requirement, but not a product.

    What else we already know:

    • Apple often patents ideas that even already exist as products
    • And often if Apple patents something, or there is a leak that Apple is working on something, you can be sure that someone else is short before a product release. Apple just tries to link itself to the idea before the competition releases it and not the other way around as you constantly try to indicate on this site. As if all companies in the world are just waiting for Apple to patent something in order to start an product.
    Again for you: in most cases, if there is leak that Apple is working on something, you can be sure that Apple tries to link the idea to itself before the competition release their own product. This is a typical unfair Apple practice.
    let u
    And yet the only example you give is a non-example. Component manufacturers shovelling out gimmicks isn’t the same as years developing a cohesive viable design.


    You obviously even don't read the posts you comment on: Samsung presented as a phone manufacturer the concept of a phone which ended later in Note Edge.

    Know what also could fold? Apple Glasses.
    Indeed.

    Reality check: Patents often take years going through the process before revealed.

    Apple filed their wraparound display patent in 2011: https://www.patentlyapple.com/patently-apple/2013/03/stunning-future-iphone-with-wraparound-display-revealed.html

    Beats hat claimed that Samsung had copied the Note Edge idea from Samsung. So I proved that it was not correct. And you did not prove anything else: the patent was release after Samsung showcased it Edge concept. Before February 2013 there were not a single reference in the internet about any Apple patents. BTW: in the linked document Apple says that the inventor was someone else (not Apple), and mentions the number of another patent.

    But we can play the game even further: the patent is from Q3 2011 while Samsung showcased its first flexible AMOLED display at CES 2011 (6-9 January 2011).

    There is no game; just showing that you are a liar by intentionally misrepresenting facts when you cherrypick dates/years to fit your agenda.

    Would be the ultimate irony if Apple gets the foldable screen right with Samsung Display as the supplier! While Samsung's foldable knockoffs still break.
    All phones break. Glass screens break more than the 'plastic' ones on current folding phones.

    Samsung has already got folding screens 'right'. Now they are moving forward with technology advances with the screens - advances that Samsung itself is developing and possibly selling to Apple.

    There is no irony here.

    This is how the industry works. First generations and early adopters help pave the way for better, cheaper versions that end up in the hands of more people. Apple will benefit from that progress too. 

    And Samsung is not alone either.

    I always found it funny when iKnockoff users scream "iPhone screens break easily lol!" there's memes, parodies and videos about this. Yet, they all use the same glass.

    First generation products from Apple are always solid. This stupid "but but it's a first gen product!" excuse arose when Samsungs attempt break out of the box. Gotta love all the excuses made for Samsung while Apple gets ZERO tolerance.
    Solid? No. They are not always solid and are often severely hampered by being precisely first generation products. You, as a user can buy into that or not but don't tell me products like the first generation MacBook Air or MacBook were solid products. Then you see patterns arising on component choices throughout various generations. Have you forgotten the butterfly keyboards already? Frayed cabling?  And let's not talk about software, shall we?

    Apple can produce a foldable phone but it isn't going to produce the screen, and according to rumours at least, that screen will be designed by someone else and, given the state of the foldable phone market right now, it won't be better than what Samsung has planned for its own phones. 

    iPhone 1: SOLID
    iPad 1: SOLID
    Apple Watch 1: SOLID
    AirPods 1: SOLID

    They lasted for years and didn't have a 100% defective rate.

    Again this stupid excuse arose when Samsungs attempt at ripping off Apple patents failed amd resulted in defected turds.

    " given the state of the foldable phone market right now, it won't be better than what Samsung has planned for its own phones. "

    It will be an Apple first gen product. As people say "Apple will do it right". Apple is notorious for releasing solid first gen products.

    Did you not read the accounts of Jony Ive saying "that's not gona work" before the Samsung Fold released? Do you really think Apple is dumb enough to just copy a copy of their own project?

    This may not even be a iPhone but a new project. You have this weird idea that Apple is like knockoff Apple manufacturers. THEY ARE NOT.
    You should re-read what I wrote. 

    If Apple produces a first gen folding phone with a screen from Samsung, it won't be a first generation folding screen. It will have reaped the rewards of ongoing generational improvements.

    And clearly Ive was wrong. Very wrong. In a very short time we have seen a lot of folding phone designs and virtually no problems in userland. 


    Now you're moving the goalposts. Typical for iKnockoff users. Like how they claim Apple didn't invent the iPhone because crappy resistive touch screens existed before iPhone.

    "And clearly Ive was wrong. Very wrong."

    100% of Samsung Folds were defective. Jony was 100% right.

    let u

    So what if Apple doesn't use all patents. Just like 99% of the industry. I always find it funny how Apple gets criticized exclusively for things 99% of the industry do.

    "Apple often patents ideas that even already exist as products"

    This isn't even legal.

    Ridiculous.

    What is ridiculous? It is very legal to have different patents for the same idea. Do you understand the difference between an idea and a patent?


    Moving the goalposts. You cannot patent something that's already patented. You just cannot.

    The number of "Scamsung"/Apple Fanboy type comments on this thread is impressive. If Apple releases a folding phone next week, how many people here would suddenly be gushing about how awesome a folding phone is?



    It's called doing something right and not crapping a product out to beat Apple's patents. Samsung always craps out an Apple product wrong. Galaxy Edge/Gear/Fold.

    We don't even know what Apple's product is. It may be a new product category.

    The first generation Samsung rollout was an acknowledged fucking disaster, and Huawei delayed its first generation at least 9 months, while you posted a miriad of excuses for them, delivered relatively few of those, and followed up with generation two, which still uses a fragile external screen fold paradigm. All of these are notably underpowered in a tablet mode, ie, they aren't tablet replacements.

    If Apple does produce its first folding screen design in the future, it will still be a first generation design for Apple, no matter that Samsung, et al, wasted a shit ton of brand value rushing their first generation models to market, all in the name of gaining first to market.

    Heck, I expect that MS will have a better result with the Duo than either Samsung or Huawei will with their flexible screen folding phone designs. 
    Again. No

    The initial run of 'review' units was a disaster. What reached users, wasn't. The Huawei folding phone was not delayed by 9 months and the reason had nothing to do with the hardware. It was more to do with having 5G carrier tuning delays but they took advantage of those months to enhance some elements, especially software. Very little actually changed with regards to hardware.

    The design itself is a question of preference. There is no wrong or right. You fold in or you fold out. Huawei will probably use BOTH designs and let users choose. 

    As for being 'underpowered' in tablet mode, that isn't true. They have been praised for getting the experience right for users and from what I can tell, Samsung has too! The chipset inside the phone is the same as in their dedicated tablets.

    It's been almost a year now since release there has been no massive blowback on the screen or the hinge. All the fretting by some here has proven unfounded. In both a hardware and utility sense. Quite the opposite would appear to be the case.

    I think it's safe to assume that the first generation efforts have paved the way and this market is likely to stay grow as prices come down.

    No, Apple did. Samsung just crapped out a product to beat them to market as usual. And as usual it was a turd.
    Why the F does it matter who is first?? I want something that is pretty decent and work great. I don't give an ass about who is first since grade school.
    The Surface Duo is a great step in the right direction, and the V2 of that will be a solid product.

    There seem to be some nice things about the Duo but they definitely need V2 to be much better to compel people to want to spend so much.

    Heck, I expect that MS will have a better result with the Duo than either Samsung or Huawei will with their flexible screen folding phone designs. 
    The duo reviews I’ve seen have been less than complimentary...
    Agreed, they weren't great, and very underpowered, but worse than the competition? That's yet to be determined. 

    Apple will lose nothing by waiting to deliver a mature design.

    Know what also could fold? Apple Glasses.
    How would that have anything to do with OLED screens?

    Would be the ultimate irony if Apple gets the foldable screen right with Samsung Display as the supplier! While Samsung's foldable knockoffs still break.
    Knockoffs? Samsung was the one that created the foldable idea. The Chinese companies that copied Samsung are the ones breaking yes.
