These foldable smartphones have advantages that will enhance our everyday usage.
While some smartphone will come with an outward fold; some will feature an open and close display. The one thing that’s for sure is that these foldable smartphones will enhance our everyday mobile phone usage. Wondering what foldable smartphones we will actually see in 2019? Well, take a look at some of the best foldable smartphones in 2019 that you should look out for!
When it comes to foldable smartphones, Samsung tops the list. The company has been working on its foldable device for quite some time now. Recently, it was confirmed that Samsung will launch its foldable smartphone just days before the MWC 2019 event. The smartphone might be called the Samsung Galaxy F or Galaxy X. A couple of days back, Samsung officially released a video showing off its foldable smartphone in all its glory.
The video shows that the foldable smartphone comes with a full-screen display. Also, the smartphone can be opened like a book to be used as a tablet. Apart from that, when opened, the smartphone will come with a 7.3-inch display with a screen resolution of 2152 x 1536 pixels. On the other hand, when closed, the smartphone will sport a 4.9-inch display with a screen resolution of 1960 x 840 pixels. Other specifications on the smartphone will include:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820
- Massive 1TB of internal storage
- Dual rear camera setup – 12MP + 8MP sensors
Recently, even Xiaomi dropped a video of its upcoming foldable smartphone. While the smartphone is still in its development stage, it does look extremely promising. Xiaomi’s foldable smartphone comes with a double folding display. The video revealed that both sides of the phone can be folded backwards to change the tablet form to a compact smartphone. This concept by far is the most practical one that we have seen on these foldable devices. Currently, there is no confirmation as to the launch date of this smartphone. However, we can expect it to make its debut before the year-end.
Samsung might not be the only one to unveil its foldable smartphone this month. If rumours are to be believed, then even Huawei is expected to launch its foldable smartphone at the MWC event this month. Along with foldable, the Huawei foldable smartphone might also be one of the first few 5G mobile phones to make its debut. However, not a lot is known about this smartphone at this point.
According to reports, users will be able to use the foldable device as a tablet and smartphone. When folded in as a smartphone, the device will sport a 5-inch display with a notch. On the other hand, when folded out as a tablet, the device will sport an 8-inch display without any bezels. It will be one of the few foldable bezel less display mobile phones.
The original Moto Razr smartphone was a huge trend back in the day. The company is planning to bring back the smartphone to the market with a foldable design. While the original Razr folded up like a flip phone, the revamped Moto RAZR 2019 will come with a full foldable display. Motorola RAZR 2019 will be one of the compact foldable smartphones in 2019 which will look like a flip phone when folded and a large 6.5-inch phone when opened. The design is smart and does not take up too much space which will make this smartphone easy to carry around. Additionally, Motorola’s foldable smartphone will come with a secondary display on the outside (when the phone is folded in). This display will showcase the notifications – similar to the original Motorola Razr.
Oppo Foldable Phone
And finally, even Oppo is going to join the race of introducing foldable smartphones in 2019. Oppo might most likely display its foldable smartphone at the MWC event. However, the device might not go on sale as of yet. The company has stayed hushed up about its foldable smartphone until now. Nevertheless, the patent of the smartphone gives us a brief idea in terms of the design. The patent shows the smartphone supporting an outward fold. It can be transformed into a tablet or a smartphone depending on how it’s folded.
