Lego takes on Samsung and Huawei with its own foldable

Foldable phones dominated tech headlines over the past few weeks, starting with the announcement of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold just 11 short days ago. Riding this wave of the foldables, Lego is now poking fun at the upcoming Galaxy smartphone with a tweet showcasing the “Lego Fold,” a seemingly functional, folding Lego creation that “borrows” heavily from Samsung’s own marketing.

Lego is also quick to point out that its foldable actually beats Samsung’s, with a 5-inch cover that unfolds into an 11-inch storybook screen, compared to Samsung’s 4.6-inch exterior display and 7.3-inch interior. The Lego Fold also has the Galaxy Fold beat on battery life, with Lego offering a nearly unbeatable promise that it “never runs out of battery.”

The price tag for Huawei 's foldable 5G-enabled phone, the Mate X, is downright astronomical.

Aesthetically, Samsung likely has the edge on Lego — while both products feature folding plastic, Samsung’s exterior is made of aluminum, instead of the ABS plastic that Lego is using. Samsung’s Android 9 Pie OS also promises to be far more useful than Lego’s seemingly single-purpose bricks, although users with experience working with Lego’s platform will likely be able to find new and novel ways to reconfigure things to their liking. Also unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold, Lego’s version probably costs way less than $2,000.

Alas, unlike the Galaxy Fold, the Lego Fold seems to just be a cute tweet, not something that you’ll actually be able to buy and build as a real set (enterprising Lego fans may be able to figure out how to build one on their own, though).
