Huawei Mate X 5G foldable phone quickly sells out in China

Huawei may have a few tense days ahead, with its fate once more hanging in the balance with rumors of a license extension coming Monday. It did, however, have a wonderful weekend at least in China where everything is business as usual despite the US blacklist.

Motorola Razr hands-on – Old name, brand new category

I'm preprogrammed to have a soft spot for the new Motorola Razr, the company's first foldable-screen phone. Like a whole lot of people - 50 million were sold in the first two years, after all - I had a RAZR V3. It wasn't my first Motorola clamshell, mind; my first ever cellphone was a Motorola StarTAC.

Motorola Razr reborn as folding-screen Android phone

The Motorola Razr is back, fifteen years after the original RAZR V3, and now a modern Android smartphone with a cutting-edge foldable display. Unveiled today, the new Razr takes a different approach in foldable phones to what we've seen Samsung's Galaxy Fold try: rather than unfurling into a mini-tablet, Motorola's device aims to be a lot smaller in your pocket.

It's a period of experimentation when it comes to foldable devices. There are, of course, literal ones that have foldable screens like the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X but there are also ones that use two screens like the LG G8X ThinQ and the upcoming Microsoft Surface Duo. And then there are prototypes like TCL's tri-fold phone and patents like this one from Oppo. What stands out from this patent isn't that it has a foldable tablet with a large flexible screen but that it practically requires a smartphone to be the brains and muscle behind the scenes, literally.

Samsung W20 5G could be the foldable clamshell you can’t get

It might not be common knowledge outside of China and Korea but Samsung is one of the last few phone manufacturers that still makes flip phones, a.k.a. clamshell phones.

According to those, a so-called W20 5G, probably the SM-W2020, might not only be a flip phone but also one with a foldable screen.

TCL foldable phone prototype dares to dream big with two folds

TCL foldable phone prototype dares to dream big with two folds

As much as foldable phones are a hot topic, they're also almost impossible to get perfect. Even without considering the fragility of the foldable screens themselves, two (or three) of the existing implementations have their respective drawbacks, like the Galaxy Fold's need for a smaller external screen or both its and the Huawei Mate X's square-ish unfolded shape. TCL is aiming to solve exactly those problems by adding one more hinge that could, of course, also be one more point for failure.

Simply based on rumors, the Galaxy Fold 2 could be the most ambitious phone to come to the market. Either that or it will eclipse its predecessor as Samsung's biggest embarrassment.

Galaxy Fold 2 is coming in April with two big changes

Samsung and industry insiders report that the Galaxy Fold keeps on selling out everywhere it launches. That is almost hard to believe since the prohibitive $2,000 price tag and limited availability makes it an extremely rare item. Regardless of the accuracy of those reports, Samsung seems to still believe in the vision of foldable phones, except that vision may be changing before the next Galaxy Fold debuts next year.
