As far as mainstream handset makers are concerned, Samsung is the first to the market with a foldable phone, although it seems that it’s still not quite the device we were hoping for. We know that Huawei also has a foldable phone in the works, but the company has delayed the launch of the device and we still have no idea when it will arrive.
As some of you might have heard, Motorola could also be a possible contender with a foldable phone of their own, and now we’re hearing that despite the rumor mill being somewhat quiet as of late, the handset is still set for a launch by the end of 2019.
This is according to a report from CNET who have heard from a source that Motorola will be making an announcement by the end of the year, although when the handset will be released is a different story. What makes Motorola’s foldable phone exciting, at least based on the rumors, is that it won’t be adopting the phone-tablet hybrid design that Samsung and Huawei have chosen.
Instead, it is expected to be reminiscent of the OG Motorola RAZR phone from back in the day, except that it will consist of a foldable display. We’re not sure if this might be a better sell than what Samsung and Huawei have to offer, but it will be interesting at the very least.
