We’ve seen more foldable smartphones released in the past year from a larger pool of brands and a new rumor suggests Sony will also join in with its own clamshell foldable. The new rumor emerged in a forum post from South Korea though the shared info is murky to say the least. The source claims we’ll see a next-generation high-end clamshell foldable of the Xperia Compact series.
The rumored device will reportedly come without a cover screen which sounds strange as all of the other vertically folding phones so far have some sort of secondary screen. There’s no other specs info at the moment so we’ll just have to wait and see if Sony is really planning to rekindle the Xperia Compact series as a clamshell foldable.
