Top 5 Things We'd Like to See in Google's next folding phone


Folding phones are the new trend in the smartphone market thanks to their unique advantages compared to traditional smartphones, so most smartphone manufacturers are racing to release their folding phones to enter the competition early, including Google.

Some rumors have shown that Google is on its way to releasing its first folding phone in the near future, so today we'll review the most important things we'd like to see on its next phone?

1- Strong and durable design:

Rumor has it that the next retractable Google phone will come with a similar design to Samsung Galaxy Fold instead of other folding phone designs such as Z Flip or RAZR, yet it is clear that Google may not only do so but will introduce its own design features.

Although Google doesn't have as much reputation as Samsung when it comes to hardware making, its latest Pixel 5, which comes with an aluminum chassis, has won the admiration of many consumers looking for a folding phone with a design similar to its flagship Pixel 5.

The aluminum design is supposed to make the folding phone more flexible in the face of water droplets and other effects, and then if Google can figure out a way to include water resistance in its folding phone, it will give the phone a big advantage in the competition.

2- Distinctive main specifications:

Google can bring a lot of great specs and capabilities to its next phone, and although these devices are often expensive — at least for now — the advantages and possibilities they offer may justify the high price they bring.

Google should therefore consider adding highly advanced specifications and features to the competition, especially since its presence in the traditional smartphone market is not that influential.

At the same time, however, it may be able to drive the folding phone market if it is interested in including premium options and specifications in its phone, such as: large storage capacities, increased RAM capacity, full compatibility with 5G networks, and long-lasting battery life.

3. Larger camera sensors and faster image processing:

So far, Google is still using the same 12.2-megapixel basic camera sensor in the Pixel 2 in its smartphone series launched the previous year, and although it is still able to capture amazing images thanks to computer imaging, compared to the sensors in its competitors' phones, it has begun to decline clearly.

Google can then make its next phone the starting point for incorporating a new, larger sensor, such as the Galaxy S21 Ultra, where such a sensor allows Google to create more depth of field and faster image processing.

4-A comprehensive reform guarantee program:

No one denies that folding phones are more fragile than traditional smartphones, so Google should plan to offer a comprehensive warranty program for its folding phone similar to Samsung's "Z Premier" warranty.

Having incentives and guarantee features such as: repairing the screen for at least once free or offering repairs and replacing low fees, will give consumers some comfort.

5- Better multi-task management and windows:

Samsung's One UI in its folding phone — and in its traditional phones — offers many advantages when multitasking compared to google's operating interface in its smartphone series, where you can use up to three apps at the same time, split the internal screen in different proportions as well as open the fourth application in a floating window.

Such integration and ease of multitasking are what Google should focus heavily on in its folding phone, not necessarily following in Samsung's footsteps, but at the same time, many consumers want to see something completely new and unique from Google, such as using a voice assistant to help perform multitasking in a folding phone.
