The Future of Foldable Phones: The Top 3 Models to Watch in 2023

Half a decade ago, foldable phones were a gimmick and ridiculed in tech forums. However, things have changed drastically over the years. While Samsung used to lead the charge, foldable phones have become flagships for major brands and are extremely fun to use. Let’s check out the best models in 2023.

1. Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4

Samsung has been the only brand that has tasted success with foldable phones. It seems like they plan to continue that legacy with the Galaxy Z Fold 4. It is the most refined and excellent foldable that you can buy. It has all the best features of its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 3, and then some with a wider screen and a robust camera system.

The hinge isn’t as bulky, the camera has been updated to a 50MP sensor and the telephoto lens has impressive zoom capability. Its intuitive software and S-Pen support also provide a true tablet experience. You can’t go wrong with this one.

2. Google Pixel Fold

Google always has a unique approach to hardware and that shows in the Pixel Fold. Unlike the tall display of the Galaxy Z Fold 4, it has a wider frame that resembles regular smartphones in the folded form. This makes the brand-new Pixel Fold familiar to users who are switching to this form factor for the first time.

On the other hand, it has a stiff hinge that allows you to set the Pixel Fold between 0 to 180 degrees. However, the excessive stiffness may lead to poor user experience if you plan to use the phone in tablet mode too often. While the main camera sensor is 48MP, Google’s excellent camera software and phone machine-learning algorithms make sure that you click the most Instagrammable pictures. The 20X Super Res Zoom helps out when you need to capture extraordinary moments from afar.

3. Motorola Razr+(2023)

Motorola’s new Razer+ will cater to all your needs if you want something sleek, capable, and nostalgic. It’s an entirely different category of foldable where the smartphone can fold shut to resemble a tiny fist-sized map. That’s not all. It has a very capable external display that’s big enough to text back to chats. You don’t need to unfold the phone to check notifications and interact with them. Hence, you don’t chip away at the durability of the hinge.

The flip form factor also makes the Razer+ around 100 grams lighter than the Galaxy Z Fold 4. This phone doesn’t have the latest flagship Snapdragon chip, the best camera, or the beefiest battery. However, its legendary design makes you forgive its shortcomings. It’s also cheaper than most foldable flagships of this year.

While foldable smartphones are overpriced enough to put the most expensive iPhones to shame, they often come with revolutionary designs or the best smartphone technology. Buyers are usually early adopters who want to try out something exciting. As foldable phones get more popular, the price will eventually come down to be affordable for regular people.
