Xiaomi's first foldable could be the Galaxy Fold competitor we've been waiting for

Following Samsung, Huawei, Motorola, and Co., Xiaomi has finally joined the foldable club. During the second part of its annual mega event, the company introduced the Mi Mix Fold, its very first folding phone. The manufacturer went with a more traditional design (if you can call it that already) first established by the Galaxy Fold, with a big 4:3 screen on the inside and a smaller 27:9 display on the outside for use like a regular smartphone.

We won't get a Galaxy Note from Samsung this year

We won't get a Galaxy Note from Samsung this year

You may have already heard whispers about a shortage of semiconductors affecting the technology and automotive sectors, but it looks like the worst is yet to come. According to Samsung CEO DJ Koh, this "serious imbalance in supply" could lead to some tough decisions in the next business quarter. Chief among those is the call to scrap this year's Galaxy Note flagship.

Huawei's new folding phone costs as much as a used car and still doesn't have a real app store

Huawei's new folding phone costs as much as a used car and still doesn't have a real app store

Huawei announced its next-gen foldable, the Mate X2, in China today. The phone features an inward-folding design, in stark contrast to the original Mate X, whose display wrapped around it. In other words, it finally adopts the design approach that Samsung has stuck with since the original Galaxy Fold — a wise decision given how fragile flexible panels are. What may prove to be quite a bit less wise, though, is how much Huawei wants you to pay for its phone.

A bunch of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 features are rolling out to the original Fold in the US

Samsung released the Galaxy Z Fold2 a while back, packed with a slew of features that make it significantly better than the company's first attempt at a foldable phone. But the company hasn't forgotten about the first-gen Fold just yet. It's inheriting a few Z Fold2 capabilities via a firmware update that's now starting to roll out in the US.

Motorola is opening every Razr box to fold the phone for safer shipping

Motorola is opening every Razr box to fold the phone for safer shipping

Motorola launched its second foldable Razr phone recently, and this one is available unlocked rather than only on Verizon. If you decide to head over to the Amazon listing to pick up Moto's little flippy boy, you might notice a strange warning. The phone's "open" shipping configuration can potentially lead to damage during transit, so Moto is opening all the boxes to flip the phone closed. In the process, someone might get fingerprints all over your "new" phone.

Galaxy Z Fold2 review, one month later: Say hello to your future

Galaxy Z Fold2 review, one month later: Say hello to your future

I started out as a folding phone critic. In fact, I bought the Z Flip we reviewed this spring with the full intention of pointing out how dumb the idea was, except I was dead wrong. I fell in love with my little flip phone, and the last week spent with the Galaxy Z Fold2 has further cemented my change of heart. Folding phones are undeniably the future, and for the right folks, the Z Fold2 is a must-buy game-changer — though probably not for you.

Weekend Poll: Will your next phone be a foldable?

Weekend Poll: Will your next phone be a foldable?

Microsoft's Surface Duo was finally revealed after almost a year of teasing just earlier this week, and our readers seem pretty polarized about it — and the whole category of folding phones in general. To be fair, there are a lot of disadvantages, like sky-high price tags and durability concerns. In my mind, we've reached the second generation of foldables, and some of those issues are starting to be resolved (outside price, anyway). With the development made so far, I'm curious to know if you'd consider a foldable for your next phone.
