Top 8 Folding Phones Coming Out This Year


Foldable phones are quickly becoming a thing now. It is used to be thing of the past, it would pop up here and there if you are watching an early 2000 tv show. Now they are making a comeback but It is not one of those Disney remakes of the old classic folding phones of 2000. It is a proper remake of the foldable phone, which was a significant mark from the bygone decade. Instead of seeing the keypad, this new adaption will bring a display screen.

Imagine a tablet being crushed by the hands of the incredible hulk but it remains unbroken and functional. With the recent resurgence of foldable phones. This could be the beginning of the new era where we ditch the traditional one screen for two. Who knows? This could lead to a phone with a display on the back.

Foldable phones seem promising with major company google making the app developers use functions such as Multi resume,  Multi-Display, and screen continuity. Making the upcoming apps more compatible, so they can adapt to the technology next in line.

Without further ado, let’s just unfold the list of foldable phones coming out this year.

8.Intel Foldable Smartphone

Intel is working on a Three display screen instead of Two that is the base foundation of making a foldable phone. The three display does make the phone look something out of the near future. And no bezel helps this phone to look even cooler than the color of intel.

This company is the first to do it. They are the one who started a fire under foldable phones in the market. So far, this company said to have the cheapest foldable phone in the market. But the reception to this product has been little skeptical.

2. Huawei Mate X

and 5G!

It’s good to see a phone implementing the technology that is not even seen the sky through a hole in the dark tunnel. If it brings competition to the phones at the high-level tier. Soon will see the products in the mid-tier finding a way to package it in affordable pricing.

1. Samsung Galaxy Fold

Specs –

OS – Android Pie
Screen size (inches)-  4.60 (1536 x 2152 px)
Processor – Octa – Core
RAM – 12 Gigs
Internal storage – 512 GB
Camera – Rear -16 , Front – 10
Battery – 4,380 (Quick Charging Support)

The best bang for your too much buck. 12gigs of RAM and 512 gigs of storage. it got hardware of decent workstation computer.

These phones sure look good and they do make it up in the performance of the hardware that they have to offer. But will the battery power of 4,000 be able to keep this beast of phones up and running after a heavy load? Or they will become another gimmick to charge a ludicrous amount of money to do the same stuff with a bigger screen.

Just to remind you, now the battery has to deal with more than what it used to. It will have to multi-task on performing various processes on two different screens at the same time while maintaining the resume-ability of an app from one screen to another.

The only good thing that I can say about these phones. If it breaks or falls on the ground, you can use it as a normal smartphone.

What’s your thought on this? Do you see your self folding a phone like a wrestler with a steel rod debuting in a wrestling match?
