Foldable smartphones have been the topic of discussion in recent days, with Samsung unveiling their fourth-generation foldable devices earlier this week. Other companies tried to cash in on the foldables craze by releasing their own foldables at the same time.
Xiaomi, for example, unveiled the MIX Fold 2, while Motorola unveiled the moto razr 2022 flip phone. Keep in mind, however, that these two phones are currently only available in China. However, the moto razr 2022 is expected to launch globally.
