We may see different modes and also a personalized camera app which studies the aesthetic preferences of the user and adjusts the camera settings.
Moto Razr V4
Motorola Razr was introduced in 2004. It was wildly successful and eventually has become the world’s best-selling clamshell phone till date. Over 130 million units were sold in the span of 4 years, thanks to the thin profile and striking appearance. Motorola Razr is all set to come back and shockingly it may be priced over $1500, i.e it’s going to be more expensive than that iPhone XS Max.
The phone could turn into a foldable display. The flexible and foldable OLED-based design facilitates the clamshell approach. As per the patent images, there is a secondary display at the center and a single-lens camera on the upper half of the back side. Moto Razr is expected to report great sales cashing on all that nostalgia. It’s rumored that Motorola has signed a deal with Verizon to distribute Razr all across the United States.

We may see quite a number of good foldable smartphones in 2020. It’s not just Motorola, even the South Koren tech giant Samsung is geared up with its second foldable phone called Galaxy Fold 2. Samsung has already introduced its 2019 variant of this device and now they are gearing up for its next-generation device. Google is developing an efficient Android OS specially meant for the foldable interfaces which are the core reason for this sudden trend of foldable devices. Samsung Galaxy F2 is rumored to have a 6000 mAh battery capacity. Galaxy 11 with complete bezel-less display and Galaxy F2 with the foldable interface, 2020 is going to be a truly grand year for upcoming Samsung phones.

So it is confirmed that there will be no foldable phone from Apple in 2019, but we all know that the company has already booked a patent for its foldable device. There are strong rumors in the market that Apple is going to introduce its first foldable phone called iPhone X Fold in 2020.
You can look into patented images which indicates that the upcoming smartphone is going to be a foldable one. While there are also few real to life fan-made renders that shows how exactly this device is going to be. But nothing much is officially confirmed, everything is now going on the bases of rumors.
For the specifications, we can expect that Apple will use its top-notch hardware to make it look beautiful from inside and outside. The pricing is going to be really high this time as Samsung’s foldable device comes with $2k approx price tag, so we can expect iPhone X Fold to be similarly priced.
Foldable technology is quite new in the market, so still, there are very few resources to get, that’s why it is costly.
