Here’s all you need to know about the all new compact clamshell smartphone being developed by Sony

A small, foldable smartphone in the form of a clamshell is purportedly being developed by Sony.

A small, foldable smartphone in the form of a clamshell is purportedly being developed by Sony. Numerous foldable smartphone models have already been released this year, and more are scheduled for release later in the year. Along with Apple, Sony is one of the final few large mobile manufacturers that has not yet entered the foldable smartphone market. The Tokyo-based company’s Xperia small line of smartphones is anticipated to shortly include a foldable model. The size of the foldable smartphone will probably be less than that of any of its rivals.

Sony is reportedly working on a “high-end compact” smartphone, which will probably be a “vertically open foldable” smartphone, according to the Japanese media site SumahoDigest. It’s anticipated to look similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4, which was unveiled in 2017.


The next Sony foldable is anticipated to have an advantage over its rivals because to Sony’s predicted use of its limited gaming capabilities to make the small foldable device game-friendly. It has been speculated that the smartphone may debut under the name Sony Xperia Fold.

According to the source, the Sony foldable would not include an additional external screen, allowing for a more compact design. A Reddit post that mentions a Korean forum as the source of the story is cited in the report. The information should be regarded with scepticism because of its dubious trustworthiness.

Oppo Find N2 Flip, another clamshell foldable, was introduced in December of the previous year. For the 8GB + 256GB option, the phone’s launch price was Rs. 89,999. There are two colour choices available for it: Astral Black and Moonlit Purple. On the other hand, the 8GB + 256GB model of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 is priced at Rs. 94,999. It comes in the colours Pink Gold, Bora Purple, Graphite, and Blue.
