My suspicion is that, while the new Razr is clearly striking a chord among some smartphone users, sales will still be minimal.

In order to get the handset as thin as it needed to be, this foldable isn't necessarily packing the latest smartphone tech - Qualcomm's Snapdragon 710 CPU is at the centre of everything, and a rather small 2,510mAh battery powers the phone. The company has already unveiled the Mi Mix Alpha with a peculiar wraparound display.

Also, check out the teaser poster for tomorrows event. LG registered the patent with WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) on February 27, 2019, and the patent was published on November 15, 2019, along with 11 images that showcase the phone design from every angle. Tiger Mobiles reports that Xiaomi has been granted patents by the Chinese authorities last month. After all, it looks like the iconic Razr from the mid 2000s that's been modernised into an ultra-sleek smartphone with a long, foldable screen. Announced last week, the new Razr pairs a clamshell design with a flexible display; it may not be the first foldable to be announced, but it's shaping up to be the most intriguing one.

Your best bet is to wait a few years for those engineers and designers to nail down foldable smartphone technology until it's as reliable as the smartphone in your hands right now.

Interestingly, the support page of an alleged foldable phone has been spotted on Samsung's Africa website, hinting at an imminent launch.

So, is it a Galaxy Fold 2 or an altogether different foldable phone? And as you would have guessed, by the time it hit the store shelves, consumers were not really keen on shelling out their hard-earned money on this gadget.

They still need to figure out how to make foldable screens more durable and how to give foldable smartphones the same kind of water and dust resistance that have become standard on most smartphones these days.
