Foldable phones have arrived, and Samsung has the pre-order figures to prove it

Samsung's big pitch for the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Flip3 appears to have landed a hit. The company has confirmed that it has logged the most global pre-orders for the new foldable phones ever, eclipsing sales of existing Galaxy Z models year-to-date.

Huawei may have realized it's doing folding screens backwards, could switch to inward fold for the Mate X2

Flexible screens are probably among the most delicate pieces of tech out in the real world, and Huawei’s decision to put one on the outside of its first foldable was surely a risky venture. With the follow-up Mate X2, the company will allegedly make an about-face and settle on an inward folding design, and the resulting device looks a lot like the Galaxy Z Fold2 in these leaked renders.

Huawei is set to launch its next foldable, the Mate X2, on February 22

Huawei created a furor among visitors at CES 2019 when it showcased its upcoming foldable phone that admittedly looked more futuristic than the prototype Samsung had shown. A lot has changed, however, between then and now. While the South Korean giant is now making the finest foldables on the market, its Chinese rival has been crippled by the US trade ban. Huawei isn't giving up, though, and is set to launch its next folding phone —  the Mate X2 — later this month.

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.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip vs Motorola Razr: What's different between these two clamshell foldables?

Following a decade of seeing black, rectangular glass slabs grow in size while swapping their backs between metal and glass, foldables are taking over to become the face of phone fetish. The nostalgia-invoking Motorola Razr went on sale not too long ago and was closely followed by Samsung’s clamshell Galaxy Z Flip. With the two foldables officially out now, it’s time to revisit this comparison to find out which one deserves your dough.

[Update: IFA teaser confirms] Leaked TCL product roadmap signals folding phone coming next year

[Update: IFA teaser confirms] Leaked TCL product roadmap signals folding phone coming next year

TCL may be more known for its TVs than its own phones, but it's had opportunities to flex its mobile muscle by gaining ODM contracts — first, Alcatel Mobile, then BlackBerry, later Palm. Well, at this point, things are seemingly at a lull for the Chinese manufacturer, but it supposedly does have plans for itself when it comes to a real TCL phone or two (or even five).

Huawei further delays folding Mate X, still projects 2019 release

In light of Samsung's well-documented troubles with its Galaxy Fold, Huawei previously delayed the release of its own folding device, the Mate X, from a June release date until September. Now, that release date has been pushed even further, according to TechRadar.
