Microsoft is back, making phones but this time with a foldable and its android. But its $1399 in US and does not comes with a latest flagship processor. Its packing Snapdragon 855 from last year and a 3577mAh battery. Which is surprising at this price point, but you believe when you hear that its only 4.8mm thick (opened) and 9.9mm thick (closed). It has 2 PixelSense 5.6’’ AMOLED Displays with the resolution of 1800×1350 (4:3) which becomes a big 8.1” 2700×1800 (3:2) when opened, protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 5.
Unlike other foldables in the market this phone does not have folding screen its actually 2 screens connected by a strong hinge.
It only comes with a single 11MP f/2.0 front camera which becomes your rear camera after folding the device. Early reviewers are saying that the hinge is really solid and smooth at every angle. You can unlock it using a side mounted fingerprint sensor which is not attached to the power button. It also packs a 6 GB RAM and 128 or 256 UFS 3.0 Internal storage which is not expandable. The only port is a USB-C (3.1) port which charges the phone with the speed of 18W. At only 250 grams this is a really light phone and takes productivity to next level.
You can watch some early review videos on YouTube and visit Microsoft’s site for more details.
