Samsung wants to sell its Galaxy Fold tech to Apple and Google

Samsung wants to sell its Galaxy Fold tech to Apple and Google Samsung could ramp up foldable display panel production if it can find itself some hardware partners.

The rumored Razr foldable phone could pack a Snapdragon 710 chip and shockingly mediocre RAM and storage. We might know a bit more about the potentially foldable Motorola Razr V4 phone, including its decent but not wildly impressive specs .

We might know a bit more about the potentially foldable Motorola Razr V4 phone, including its decent but not wildly impressive specs. The device will pack a Snapdragon 710 processor, very middling RAM and storage and have a sub-3,000mAh battery, a source told XDA Developers.

In other words, the Razr foldable’s performance may be mid-range when compared to the top-tier specs packed into the folding devices slated for this year, like the Samsung Fold and Huawei Mate X.

Per XDA Developers’ source, the phone will have two RAM and two storage variants (it’s unclear which configurations will be offered): either 4 or 6GB of RAM, and either 64 or 128GB of storage. The phone is said to come with a 2,730mAh battery, which is far lower than those coming in the Samsung Fold and Huawei Mate X, though XDA admits this info might be out of date.

MWC highlights include affordable smartphones, not just foldable ones

XDA Developers also snagged the supposed logo and placed it on a black background. Supposedly, this is how it will look:

Paving the way for a potentially cheaper folding option?

Up until now, foldable phones have been specced and priced above even top-tier flagships, and their emergence essentially introduced a new cost ceiling for mobile devices.

Sadly, this phone is no exception. According to the Wall Street Journal’s report earlier in 2019 that kicked off the foldable Razr rumor mill, Motorola’s device was expected to have a starting price of roughly $1,500 (around £1,170, AU$2,010) – which, yes, is nominally cheaper than the Fold and significantly cheaper than the Mate X, but it’s still far beyond what even conventional flagships cost.

Samsung said to be working on two more foldable phones

Samsung said to be working on two more foldable phones One of the handsets will open outward instead of inward, while another will open vertically, Bloomberg reports.

According to the rumored specs , the foldable Motorola Razr features the Snapdragon 710 processor. Even though it's not the top-tier Snapdragon 855, the Snapdragon 710 can still hold its own. Motorola ’s rumored Razr foldable phone might not be the flagship beast you hoped for.

Yet, there is a silver lining. If these specs are to be believed, then the Razr V4 foldable could be a proof-of-concept that you don’t need the best specs on the market to get a folding phone to market. There could be a legitimate mid-range folding phone that works with a mid-tier processor and average specs.

This could drive down foldable prices from their astronomical heights, and eventually give consumers more opportunity to try the novel devices for themselves.

And they do, indeed, have cool stuff to offer: a previous XDA report suggested the Razr V4 could come with a second screen that would double as a trackpad when the phone is unfolded. It’s unclear how that would work, but the possibility is exciting.
