Sony's Upcoming Foldable Phone To Challenge Huawei Mate X, Samsung Galaxy Fold

Sony is not an outsider in the trend of making foldable phones.

The trend in making foldable smartphone is heating up day by day. Apart from well-known phone makers like Samsung and Huawei, Sony is also reportedly developing its first foldable smartphone. The leaker also gave a prediction on the launch date of this foldable phone: in late 2019 or early 2020.

Foldable Phone Sony Event
The launch is expected to happen in the coming months.

As the source leaked by Max J '@Samsung_News' suggests, prototypes of a foldable Sony will reportedly carry along some detailed specs such as a battery of 3,220mAh, a display screen made by LG, and a 10x zoom camera. However, it remains unclear whether the foldable phone comes with hybrid or optical zoom technology. As for the hardware, it seems to pack a Snapdragon SM7250 processor under the hood.

Foldable Phone Huawei Mate X
Huawei Mate X - one of the few foldable smartphones in the world at present.

When Sony launches the foldable phone commercially, it might have a Qualcomm X50 modem and a Snapdragon 855 chipset to keep up with the future 5G network. Max J also noted that the device will get a Nautilus design, unlike the Huawei Mate X or Samsung Galaxy Fold. Of course, we all expect Sony to introduce a must-see competitor to previous foldable smartphones in the market now.

To remind, Apple has also been working on a brand-new iPad, which will boast of both 5G connectivity and foldable display. The upcoming iPad is likely to support MacBook-sized screens, ranging from 14 inches to 15 inches. Apart from that, the upcoming iPad and the rumored Microsoft's Centaurus could seem a lot similar (Centaurus is a Surface device with a dual-screen design).
