In an interview with Nikkei Asian Review, Intel's Joshua D. Newman stated that laptops with foldable screens are at least two years removed from us. Intel's general manager of mobile innovation and vice president of the company's Client Computing Group explained that they're currently trying to understand the capabilities and limitations of foldable screen technology.
Newman said the difficulty surrounding the technology means it will take "at least some two years" for the foldable laptops to reach consumers. But if the research signals a positive user experience, Intel and its ecosystem partners will accelerate the development of such products, he said.
Samsung made a big splash earlier this year with the Galaxy Fold, but had to quickly recall all test devices because the screens started malfunctioning pretty quickly.
