The time have come finally for the big leap in terms of technology. An era of foldable phones is at our door. But it is upon the mobile phone consumer market of around 5 billon users around the globe to welcome this or not.
Big giants like Samsung, Apple, Huavie, Intel, Motorola and more have joined this race to present itself before us before anyone else do it. Let us see this “race” a bit in detail.
In the past 5 to 6 years, we have seen rapid changes in the field of smartphones. Today every phone in the market is different from the other but still the same. 2 megapixel has turned 12 megapixel, 1 gb ram to 6 gb and 2 gb storage to 256 gb , but still fundamentally its all same.
For after a long time we will be experiencing a big change. What? What? What? A Foldable phone !!!

WHAT EXACTLY IS A FOLDABLE PHONE?
Remember ZTE AXON M ? the dual screen feature was excitingly new in the market.
Foldable phones should not be confused with the one like ZTE AXON M. This is a dual screen phone with a hinge joining the two. But a foldable phone is one which folds or bends along the total length or at some specific locations.
The top fold-able phones contenders are …let us see..
1. Samsung galaxy X or Infinity Flex
First seen in Samsung Developer Conference 2018, holding in his hand in the dark was Justin Denison, SVP of mobile marketing. We must accept that not much was visible to the people, but of course, it hinted the tech experts what exactly it could be.
With a front screen size of 4.85 inches with an aspect ratio of 21:9 and a resolution of 840 X 1960, the device opens up to 7.3-inch screen size with a resolution of 1536 X 2152 and a ratio of 4.2:3. See more about this phone in this video……..
We will be hearing some big announcement from Samsung in Mobile world Congress this year in February from 25 to 28.
This phone is unveiled in Samsung Unpacked 2019 on 21 Feb, named Samsung Galaxy Fold as a tenth-anniversary special.
Off-course Samsung is not going to run alone in the race.
In the mobile world congress this year on 24th February, Huawei is rumored to launch the world’s first foldable 5G device. Foldable plus 5G, two most hyped but still unknown of its use, in a single packet. Hoping it to be affordable (comment and share with us how much much much can you pay for this), let the wheel of time show us all.

Huawei fold-able phone is named Mate X and was launched on 24 Feb 2019 in MWC 2019.
3. Motorola razr
Motorola is the manufacturer of most iconic phone Moto Razr V3, which we all loved. Motorola is coming up with its future design in the same shell.
The original design of bottom Thick chin, curved design, and the back will be preserved, while curved top notch, a fingerprint at the back and an extended screen will make its way.
Rumoured to launch in late February or early march, costing around 1500$!! Let us see how this makes its way onwards.
We are at the brisk of the start of a new era of fold-able phones. We are still unclear of is usability, but as this technology will mature with time we will be witnessing some great features.
