Folding smartphones are in vogue. Although only two companies have officially presented their products (Samsung and Huawei), others have said they are working on yours.
One of the most interesting is that of Motorola. The supposed new Motorola Moto Razr. A smartphone inspired by the old Razr (known in UK as V3) but with newer technology.
That is, a smartphone shell in which the inner part is entirely a screen. You can open the phone to access the equipment or close the device by putting it in your pocket.
A concept of the Motorola Moto Razr
This is the typical smartphone that I believe can work. Personally I'm tired of big smartphones. This way the device will be big but easy to store in your pocket.
According to the patent, Samsung is also preparing its shell smartphone. Equipment that will fold in the center and close when not in use. The new information from SamMobile indicates that Samsung should present the 6.7 "inch (when open) OLED smartphone for next year.
Patents do not guarantee smartphone manufacture
But note that we are talking about a patent. Unfortunately patents do not guarantee the construction and manufacture of the smartphone. Instead, the patent only tells us that Samsung actually has a team working on this project.
That being said, we cannot say when this kind of smartphone could hit the market. Rumor has it that Motorola is due to introduce its Motorola Moto Razr later this year, but that is not guaranteed either.
In short, this type of folding smartphone seems to me more appealing than a tablet-turned smartphone. Still, we have to realize that technology is not simple to manufacture. The delay of Galaxy Fold (Samsung's first folding smartphone) is proof of that.
