That's why we're less than shocked to see evidence of a follow-up already appearing on official channels. On Friday, Galaxy Fold 2 leaks have been popping up at a fairly steady

Why the Motorola Razrs display wont break as easily as the Galaxy Folds

One of the more remarkable things about the original iPhone was how quickly it made established handset makers irrelevant. In seemingly the blink of an eye, the iPhone set the blueprint for what a modern-day smartphone should look and act like. In the process, entrenched players like Motorola and Nokia quickly found themselves scrambling for scraps. Motorola in particular represents an interesting case-study, if only because the company was behind one of the more popular and iconic phones of the
