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

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.

Samsung Internet 14 Beta adds more privacy tools, enhanced video UI for foldables

Samsung's self-branded internet browser comes pre-installed on all its Android devices. If you've never opened it (or done so just once, and then switched to Chrome), the company is hoping you'll check it out with some new improvements. Version 14.0 is now in beta, available as a download from the Galaxy Store, Play Store, and over on APK Mirror.

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

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 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.

Forget foldables — Oppo's latest concept phone is rollable

Forget foldables — Oppo's latest concept phone is rollable

There are a lot of weird phones out there, but I've never seen one quite like this before. Oppo's new concept phone, the Oppo X 2021, might at first appear to be a standard 2020 phone with a 6.7" display. One quick swipe on the side, however, and the screen expands to a more tablet-like 7.4" size. Magic? Almost — it's thanks to a flexible screen and a motorized scroll mechanism.

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.

What's a phone? The Surface Duo breaks our definitions

What's a phone? The Surface Duo breaks our definitions

Microsoft's been teasing the Surface Duo for the last year, and it's finally here — well, available for pre-order, anyway. But the entire time we've been talking about it, it's been difficult to pin down what exactly the Surface Duo is. Intuitively, we want to call it a phone. It's kinda phone-sized when folded up, it runs an operating system some phones do, and you can do phone stuff on it. But is it really a phone? Have we reached the Apple "What's a computer?" moment when it comes to phones?

Moto’s second foldable Razr could be all about minor upgrades, 5G, and new cameras

Moto’s second foldable Razr could be all about minor upgrades, 5G, and new cameras

Motorola was right on the verge of turning irrelevant in the premium smartphone segment when it decided to bounce back with a modern-day flip phone. The new Moto Razr managed to get people interested by striking a nostalgic chord, even if hardware like a Snapdragon 700-series chip kept power users wanting more. As thoughts turn to a follow-up Razr, a new report talks about possible iterative upgrades for its camera and battery, and an official source helps us narrow down the launch time frame.
