These days the hype seems to be all about foldable or bendable screens. What if a smartphone could turn into a tablet—or a laptop? Samsung has already made one like this, and other giants like LG are rumored to be working on their own. But what’s really going on here—and when will those models be available? Only time will tell, but the important thing is that companies are working on foldable screens, which is something to note.
While we’ve heard of foldable devices in the past (like the Popemobile and even the new patent we saw), this may be the first time we get a glimpse of phones that actually fold during use. While the device will fold at the back, this concept is actually a lot more interesting when you realize that the phone will also be able to fold inward at the sides, such that the device can function as a tablet, like an iPad. In addition, the same hinges will also allow the screen to be folded inward, which will allow for a bigger screen (or at least a larger viewable area) when in tablet mode.
The term “foldable” refers to phones that can be folded in half to become smaller for travel. A few years ago, most foldable phones just looked like regular smartphones on steroids; the best example is the Huawei Mate X, which looks like a regular phone when it’s unfolded, but folds up into a tablet-sized device with a giant screen. Today’s foldable phones are smaller, thinner, and more stylish, and they no longer have to be giant tablets. There are foldable phones that are smaller than a credit card, foldable phones that fold in half to become smaller, and foldable phones that can be turned into a tablet.
In the not-so-distant future, the idea of having a smartphone that folds into a tiny gadget that fits in your pocket may become a reality. In the meantime, we see a flood of new folding smartphones that can easily fit in your pocket or hand. Here are some top models from the past few years.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is a smartphone with a folding screen, and a lot of people are interested in it. The phone is priced at around 1000USD, which is a bit high but is also among the most state-of-the-art phones Samsung has ever produced.
Samsung has just released the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, a new addition to the Galaxy Z family. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip comes with the same sleek and compact design as its predecessors. Although it is smaller than the Galaxy S7, the Galaxy Z Flip has a larger 5.4-inch display and packs the same powerful specs inside. But what really makes this phone stand out is its ability to flip in the middle, turning your phone into a 3.5-inch Android tablet.
Flip phones are back in fashion, and if you are looking for one or have stopped using one, you should probably consider getting one of these. They are not just fashionable, but they are also practical and convenient.
Motorola Razr (2020)
For most people, smartphones are at the center of their digital lives. A phone is an ideal way to take and share photos, keep in touch with friends and family, and do our daily tasks. The problem is, this is where smartphones often fall short. And while there are certainly good phones out there, the company that makes your phone doesn’t necessarily care about how you think. If you are happy with your phone but concerned about how much information it gathers, you should consider getting the Motorola Razr 2020.
The Razr is a phone that has just made its debut on the Canadian market, and it is packing in some fascinating features. The processor is a dual-core 1.8GHz Snapdragon 855, while the RAM is 6 GB. The camera is a 12MP/20MP shooter with a dual-tone flash, while the front-facing camera is a 25MP unit. The battery is a 3,150mAh unit and if you want to save some money, you can get the entry-level model without a fingerprint scanner.
