Motorola has patented its own vision of a folded smartphone. Is it better than the two screens of Samsung and three in the LG edition?
In order to now stand out on the market, it's not enough to create a good flagship that will take nice pictures. They can already make smartphones for around PLN 1,000. Thinner frames are also just a war on numbers, which currently has a small impact on the comfort of using the device. We come back to the wall again. The pursuit of a larger working area while maintaining relatively compact dimensions forces the manufacturers a new approach. Efficiency? Similarly – for a thousand you have a stronger device than most users are able to use. For a long time we have been hearing rumors about a folding Samsung smartphone, recently I also wrote about LG, which wants to have as many as three screens within one device. So far, my favorite idea remains Motorola, which has just patented its own project. And as in the case of MotoMods, they did it completely differently than the competition. Is it better?Well – yes and no. While the vision of the smartphone, which completely overlaps the side edges, certainly looks very futuristic, this "inactive" insert in the middle of the screen will be a challenge for people who will be responsible for designing the interface. After folding it will be simultaneously a very long and narrow screen, which will not necessarily translate into comfortable browsing the internet. I also have reservations for "active" side frames – apart from accidental touches that can be dealt with by the software, where should the ports be? Unless by the time this model is released (if it ever happens), the charging connector will be the same in history as the headphone jack. After all, I keep my fingers crossed for this project much stronger than in the case of Samsung and LG. Motorola has presented unusual smartphones in the past and I hope it will not disappoint me this time. Source: AndroidHeadlines
