I’m sure you’ll agree with me when I say that foldable phone design is the next big thing in the smartphone industry. In case you’re interested in them, one of the most popular of them now is Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip foldable phone. It’s a full-screen phone that folds to fit into the pocket with revolutionary flexible glass. Apart from that, there are a few other foldable phones that you can also consider at a cheaper price compared to Samsung’s own. In this article, we’ll be looking at them all – the top 10 best foldable phones in 2020.
List Of Top 10 Best Foldable Phones To Get In 2020
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip
Unarguably, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip is the most popular of all the smartphones that you’ll see on our list of top 10 best foldable phones of 2020. The foldable smartphone has a clamshell design, a 6.7-inch AMOLED display, and a 21:9:9 aspect ratio. Apart from that, it also has a 4.6-inch display when it folds up.
According to different carriers, the foldable smartphone sells at a price of $970 for both AT&T and Sprint. However, on Amazon, it’s currently being sold at a price of $1,303.
Motorola Razr, another phone on our list of top 10 best foldable phones of 2020, also has a clamshell design. It features a 6.2-inch internal foldable screen and a 2.7-inch external display. Unveiled on 13 November 2019 by Lenovo-owned Motorola, the foldable smartphone also comes with a lot of other amazing features, including Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, 8GB RAM, and 256GB storage.
Samsung Galaxy Fold
The Samsung Galaxy Fold, released in 2019, debuted alongside the Galaxy S10. However, there’s a series of teething issues that came with it upon launching. Finally releasing in September 2019, the foldable smartphone came with lots of great features, including a 7.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED screen and reliable battery life. It also has a small 4.6-inch Super AMOLED screen, with a resolution of 1,680 × 720 pixels.
Talk of its processor, it’s powered by a Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 processor. It has a storage capacity of 512 GB and 12GB of RAM.
Huawei Mate X
Unlike the above mentioned foldable phones, Huawei Mate X has a 6.6-inch main screen on the exterior fold, which unfolds into an 8-inch OLED tablet and a 6.38-inch screen on the rear. Talking of the processor, it’s powered by Kirin 980, a high-performance mobile AI chipset and 5G modem.
The Royole FlexPai, coming from a company with a small fan base, was the first commercial foldable smartphone to launch publicly across the world. It has a 7.8-inch full-color screen display when viewed flat and a resolution of 1,920 x 1,440 pixels. It also has a camera setup that features two lenses, including a 16-megapixel wide-angle and a 20-megapixel telephoto.
LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen
Although the LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen is not a foldable phone, it has a dual-screen accessory, which enables its users to experience two different screens that are detachable.
Last year, the company mentioned in a pre-MWC 2019 briefing that entering the foldable phone market doesn’t make any business sense. However, with foldable phones gradually becoming more popular, I’m sure it’ll consider the design for future devices.
LG V50 ThinQ
Just like LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen, LG V50 ThinQ is also not a foldable phone. However, it can be folded with the help of an accessory. Its second screen, having an additional 6.2-inch OLED screen, is more like a smartphone cover case. LG users can make use of it independently, even while busy on the main screen.
ZTE Axon M
The ZTE Axon M device, which is also on our top 10 best foldable phones of 2020, is not really a foldable phone. Instead, it has two similar 5.2-inch Gorilla Glass screens, which users can fold to stack on each other. The device offers three different modes, including Dual, Extended, and Mirror for onscreen multitasking. With the mirror mode, you and your friend can be able to view content on the screen from opposite sides when placed on a flat surface.
Other Foldable Phones
Xiaomi Mi Fold
Xiaomi Mi Fold is on our list of top 10 best foldable phones of 2020 because it has a lot of amazing features. In 2019, Xiaomi was able to introduce the phone on Weibo. The device is a double-folding phone, having the top and bottom tablet-sized screen folding down.
Microsoft Surface Duo
Microsoft Surface Duo, which was unveiled during the annual Surface hardware event in 2019, is a dual-screen, Android-powered phone. It has a lot of amazing features, including two 5.6-inch screens joined together by a revolutionary 360-degree hinge. According to Microsoft, the device is expected to come to us in the coming 2020 holiday season.
