But not only Samsung, Nokia smartphone maker HMD Global can also bring folding phones this year. Chinese smartphone company Xiaomi has also begun working on folding phones. Foldable display technology phones have some flaws already and there has been discontent among the customers. So one of the best questions this year is Will Foldable Smartphones be profitable in 2020?
Motorola has announced that they will be releasing their new foldable smartphones Razer Series sometime soon. This phone with vertical folding screens, is the latest version of Motorola’s 2005 popular phone Motorizer. The device which was priced around $1500, was supposed to start offering in the US market on December 26. The proprietor Lenovo blames Razor’s popularity for being late. They say the demand for the phone is far greater than its supply.
However, there are some problems with this folding phone. While there is no new date for marketing the phone yet, Motorola has said that it is not too late to release the phone. When Chris Fox of the BBC used the test model of the phone, he found some problems with its hardware. According to him, people will prefer to use it not as a primary device, but as a fashionable product. As wise people says, this could be the best and best-selling foldable smartphones of 2020. Although the price seems a little over $1500, the folding sets cost less than its competing phones – the Samsung Fold (1960$) and the Huawei Mate X ($2600).

Xiaomi’s president, Bin Lin, also showed the experimental version of a folding phone, but the Chinese company has not yet finalized the product for users. However, experts believe that folding technology could bring about a major change in the smart device market over the next decade.
Technology analyst Ben Wood said, “This technology on the folding screen will revolutionize not only smartphones, but also everyday electronics products in the next decade. Within a few days I will be able to see all kinds of products being screened.”
According to a report by Nokiamob, HMD Global will bring their Nokia branding folding phones to market. The company has already started working on it.
