Foldable smartphones are all the rage these days as several smartphone brands are showing off their devices. With these type of smartphones expected to go mainstream in April, certain unforeseen issues have halted its official debut. Because of this prolonged delay, several other brands are taking up the mantle to show off their own products. The latest brand that has seeped out of the woodwork is Sony and in a bid to prove that its smartphone business isn’t dead, they are rumoured to be building a new take on the foldable smartphone — a rollable handset.
