In the past year, the market for foldable smartphones has picked up speed with new manufacturers and more models. According to a new rumor, Sony now also wants to get involved with its own folding phone in the style of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 or the Motorola Razr 2022 – the Sony Xperia Compact Fold.
The new rumor surfaced in a forum post in South Korea. But the information shared is unclear, to say the least. The source claims that the Sony Xperia Compact Fold will be a high-end model. It seems it won’t be alone for long but part of the next-gen Xperia Compact series.
The Sony Xperia Compact Fold is reportedly set to launch without an outer cover display. That would be a first in the current market for vertically foldable cell phones, where manufacturers are currently throwing around new display records. These include the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5, the Oppo Find N3 Flip, and the OnePlus V Flip. Unfortunately, there are no further technical data at the moment. We are curious to see whether Sony will actually revive the Xperia Compact series as a foldable.
