The foldable phone is a hybrid: smartphone and tablet. It is a portable smartphone with the screen size of a tablet. A larger tablet-like screen can be accessed by unfolding the device, allowing access to a larger screen at any time. In addition to the added screen size, foldable phones fold up. This folding feature allows users to perform multiple tasks at once. The proliferation of remote work and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trends are boosting sales of foldable phones.

Increasing investment from smartphone makers drives demand in the foldable smartphone market. In August 2022Xiaomi Inc. announced that the company launched a new foldable smartphone called the Mix Fold 2, in Porcelain. The predecessor of this phone, the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold, featured an 8.01-inch foldable screen and a 6.52-inch elongated outer display with a 27:9 aspect ratio.

In August 2022, Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. introduced two new series of Samsung phones (Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Galaxy Z Fold 4). Both smartphones became available in August 2022. In terms of design, there have been no changes to the design of the Galaxy Z Flip 4. This smartphone comes with dual front-facing cameras and a dual-tone effect. The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 is powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus, running Android 12 operating system. The phone also packs 8GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage.

Vivo X-Fold 5G will be available in late 2022. Vivo X-Fold 5G features an 8.3-inch foldable AMOLED display that provides a tablet-like experience. Furthermore, the panel offers a QHD resolution of 1916×2160 pixels, a pixel density of 360 PPI, and a screen-to-body ratio of 88%. The phone has a 6.5-inch cover display with FHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate.

The price of the foldable phone is higher than the average phone. Samsung and others are working to differentiate the phones from standard phones with flexible screens. The durability of foldable phones is uncertain; the technology has only been around for three years.
