Last we heard that Samsung is mulling a true Motorola Razr 2019 competitor, in the form of a clamshell foldable design, it was still deciding whether to employ a 6.7″ or a 7.9″ display. It looks like it may have decided on the former, given yesterday’s tip that the clamshell Fold will cost “just” $845. That’s almost half the price of the $1500 Razr, indicating that some specs corners will have to be cut.
For the design in question, the screen unfolds over a protruding hinge part on the back which can be used to hold the phone more comfortable with one hand while unfurled, prop it on a surface, or simply attach various modules like a projector or a more potent speaker to it
For all its worth, there will be at least four more foldables next year – from Samsung, Motorola and even LG – that have been rumored so far, and something tells us that Huawei and Xiaomi won’t be sitting still, too, so expect foldable innovation galore in the next few years. We hope wider adoption will mean much lower prices for bendables, too.
