IFA 2019: TCL’s Foldable Phone Concept Looks a Lot Better Now

Earlier this year TCL revealed some concept designs for a foldable phone, and they were horrible ugly things that made me glad they weren't going to be coming to market. Now, though, the company unveiled the latest version of its foldable design at IFA, and frankly it looks a hell of a lot better than it did before. And not just because this one apparently folds all the way. Read More >>

But, according to Richard Yu, the man behind Huawei's mobile division, it could arrive as early as next month. Read More >>

IFA 2019: TCL Has No Interest in Rushing its Foldable Phones

Back in March TCL unveiled a first look at its range of foldable phones. Phones with a design that I quickly dismissed as being really shit-looking because, well, they were really shit-looking. In fact we've seen patent designs and they don't look much better. The good news is that those devices are still in the concept stage, so there's plenty of time to make them look a bit fancier.

After Samsung’s Galaxy Fold Disaster, Huawei Is Delaying Its Foldable Phone, Too

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is a Flawed Start to Something Amazing

In a lot of ways, doing a traditional review of the Samsung Galaxy Fold is pointless. Anyone who buys one isn’t doing so because it’s a good value or a sound purchasing decision. It’s not. They’re buying one because it’s new, innovative, and exciting. Besides, pre-orders for the Galaxy Fold have already sold out, so even if you want one, it’s probably too late. And yet, for a product with many flaws, even in its current state, the Galaxy Fold presents a vision that makes a ton of sense, and it’s one of only a handful of gadgets that you can call a game changer and mean it.

Could the Samsung Galaxy Fold Actually Be Worth It?

The Galaxy Fold represents more than eight years of design, engineering, and brand new tech, just to realise a phone with a flexible screen that works. We’re talking new malleable adhesives and complicated composite polymers made specifically to support the bendy display. And now after months of teasing, I’ve finally gotten a chance to check one out in the flesh. And despite its nearly £2,000 price tag, the Galaxy Fold is proof that the whole bendy phone trend could be more than just a fad. Read More >>
