There are phones that bend, pack in many cameras and even turn around. Although most of them will not provide the same step as the upcoming iPhoneor seeing these devices gives us a window on where the next phones are going. And it shows what you can get for your money today, no matter where you might live.
Here's the best of the group we saw at the show. Most will go on sale soon or launch by October. Some of them are conceptual designs that intrigue the future.
Redesigned Galaxy Fold
never reached its original date of sale after the company on display, prone to accidents. But Samsung says now that and we should try it briefly.
The saga is already in its next chapter. Samsung seems to have reduced its ambitions to the Galaxy Fold,to start fresh again, and which parades around the launch. Silver and black will be your only options now.
We don't have all the details for the pre-order yet, but Fold is already on sale in Korea and is rumored to be coming to the US on September 27th. Samsung did not respond to a request for comment on the rumors, but we do know thatwhich sounds like concierge service for Fold owners to receive dedicated customer support. ( .)
The LG G8X sticks your nose in dual-screen folding cases
The folding phones are one thing, but LG has a different approach that will still give you two screens. when you want and the option to carry a smaller phone when you prefer to optimize.turns the high-end phone into a full-featured dual-screen experience with a case that matches the 6.4-inch G8X screen.
You'll be able to do everything from multi-tasking with two separate applications on two separate screens to playing games with a game pad that you can create and customize yourself. Imagine watching a video on one screen while texting on the other or using one of the two displays to visualize your selfie. There is software to adjust the selfie lighting while you take your portrait, and a clean tool to capture both screens and automatically attach it to a message.
Two-screen device can be bulky. But being able to remove the G8X via USB-C and use it like any other phone makes it more familiar to people who want to be cut – but maybe not bleeding – the end of
A $ 450 four-cell phone with satin glass backs.
Motorola One Zoomgives you three interesting things to see about the beautiful purple, bronze or gray pads. First the pads themselves are made of matt glass cover.
They are super smooth to get your hand through, maybe a little slippery, but they minimize fingerprint grease. This is good news – fingerprints are a hard truth that puts a shock absorber on many glass pads for people who decide to skip the case.
More important are the four back cameras, which include a 48-megapixel special night mode arrow and a telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom. Motorola really works here, offering the camera features you see on phones that cost twice as much.
Finally, there is the price itself. $ 450 is really middle class, which is aggressively competitive. And One Zoom aims to bring you huge value for money. This is a phone we are closely monitoring.
Cheaper 5G Phone
is not cheap by any definition, but for 749 euros (about $ 825, £ 670 or AU $ 1,210), it will cost $ 500 more less than Samsung's other 5G phones when it launches in October. The 6.7-inch device has three cameras at the back, including a 48-megapixel arrow and a large 4,500 mAh battery.
For early adopters seeking 5G as soon as possible, the A90 5G signals that the price is high up to the sky barrier for 5G can and will settle. You may need to make some compromises to get it, but the phone's features are solid, and the large screen, camera and battery still offer premium air.
Compared to the $ 1300 Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G and the steady price of thethe Galaxy A90 5G is a bargain. ( and are also direct competitors.)
The first phone from a new phone brand
TCL is not a known brand of phones … yet. But it has a long history of selling phones under the name Alcatel. It also licenses BlackBerry and even Palm names. Yet the company best known for itsis trying to do something new. The first phone named TCL, was launched. Plex looks a lot like Samsung's but for less.
TCL views this middle class as its inaugural step towards establishing itself as a consumer electronics brand that uses screen grandeur in a number of products. Like Samsung and LG, it wants to build a single brand that you can trust. many aspects of your digital life, from your phone and TV to a smart watch, tablet or smart home appliance.
Plex is such an interesting game less for its package than the extremely affordable specifications and more for its role of being first. It is early to say whether TCL will succeed, but with Plex he intends to try.
Folding concept phones
TCL Plex is not the only move of the company. Conceptual designs such as a folding wallet phone and a curved display with a curved display on both sides are two ways TCL might surprise you as it develops its mobile presence. A completely cordless phone, fused with two pieces of glass – without ports, is also another bold experiment that TCL does.
