Samsung Shines As Foldable Mobile Phone And Tablet Market Skyrockets

Shane Snider

CRN takes a look at the hottest entries from the Samsung Fold series, Microsoft and more.

Asus Zenbook 17 Fold OLED

The Asus OLED Zenbook laptop only gets an honorable mention on our list because A) it’s a PC, not a mobile device and B) it won’t hit the market until later this year. But we’d be remiss not to include an important entry for this newer technology. And let’s face it, it’s just plain cool.

The 17-inch version will hit the market first, followed by a 14-inch version later in the year. The Zenbook Fold packs an impressive resolution of 2,560 x 1920 pixels and can be folded into clamshell mode to use with the detachable keyboard.

Inside, the Zenbook Fold will hum along with a choice of the new Intel Core i7 U-Series processor, up to 16GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. Battery life should not be an issue, with a large 75Wh cell included.

Pricing is yet to be announced.
