Sony may be working on a folding phone of its own named Xperia F is in the early stages of development as the reports from China claim that the phone is scheduled to launch next year

The phone will come with a flexible OLED display from Samsung. The 21: 9 aspect ratio is likely to be a foldable vertical design, as Samsung and Huawei folding phones that can be folded horizontally have square dimensions

According to rumors, the Sony Xperia F will have a 5G modem, which may be the first of its kind from Sony, unless the company launches a new Xperia 5G in the IFA of course

In December last year, LetsGoDigital unveiled a patent for Sony submitted to the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO), which revealed the design of a retractable smartphone. However, if the report from China is accurate, the folding smartphone may not be seen anytime soon
