Everything on foldable smartphones

The foldable phone is the latest big development in the smartphone market. You can either collapse a device of regular size to easily transport it or fold a sort of mini tablet into a regular-sized smartphone. In this article, we'll tell you which kinds of foldable smartphones are currently available.

Why a foldable smartphone?

Why a foldable phone

A foldable smartphone is mainly very practical. Is it too much of a hassle to carry your smartphone in a bag or does it not fit in your pocket? Choose a foldable phone that you can fold, so you can easily take it with you. In addition, there are devices that are the size of a small tablet. When you unfold them, it's as big as a regular smartphone. That's useful if you want to watch videos or multi-task. There is enough space on the large screen to open 2 apps at the same time.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip folds horizontally. You can fold the 6.7-inch screen so it's only half the size. That way, you can easily fit the smartphone in your bag or pocket. In addition, you can lock the screen at a 90-degree angle. That's useful if you want to make a video call, take a photo, or edit a video. The software automatically adjusts to this angle. For example, the bottom part of the screen can function as a control panel while you use the upper part as your screen. On top of that, the device is very powerful thanks to the Snapdragon 855+ processor and 8GB RAM.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold was Samsung's first foldable phone. When you fully open the device, you'll have a large 7.3-inch screen. You can use this wide screen as a kind of mini tablet. That's useful if you want to watch series or multi-task. Thanks to 12GB RAM, the phone functions properly even if you use multiple apps at the same time. When you fold up the Galaxy Fold, the device becomes the size of a normal smartphone. When the phone is folded, you can use the small 4.6-inch screen on the front to quickly read messages or check the weather.

The LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen isn't officially a foldable phone, but you can use it as one. That is because the case included by default is a second screen. Once you click the LG G8x into the case, you can use both screens. This can be useful to send an email or multi-task. When you're gaming, you can use one screen for the controls and the other for the gameplay. Want to watch a movie? Put the phone in tent mode in front of you. You can take the phone out of the case if you don't need a heavy second screen.
