Foldable Phones for 2019

Following on from the Samsung Galaxy Fold many other manufacturers are releasing news of their foldable smartphones.

Check out the new HUAWEI Mate first draft foldable phone.

This is another 5G phone which is currently being shown as a late prototype and the release date is not yet known. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Fold the HUAWEI Mate foldable has the display on the outside and the reviewers are saying postive things about the designs.

Samsung Galaxy Fold Coming to a Store Near You

This is some cool tech soon to hit the streets. Slated for an April appearance the new Samsung Galaxy Fold with a 4.5″ folding display certainly looks attractive and very usable.

The downside to this model may be the cost as the release price is close to 2 grand which will be out of reach for many consumers but less for corporate devices. For this price you also get the new 5G.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold has two OLED displays, although only one has the ability to fold.

The front of the Galaxy Fold sports a 4.5-inch screen, known as the Cover Display. According to the South Korean firm, this OLED display will work in a similar fashion to existing Samsung handsets.

Wearable Medical Tech

This is good news and something that I fully agree with. Wearable tech is becoming so advanced and so available to many people so it can only do good to provide guidance and reminders to wearers.

Medical treatment today primarily takes the form of drugs and therapy. But a third option is slowly emerging: on-body, digital devices that can treat both mental and physical conditions. Such “wearable” therapy offers unique advantages in that it is often more targeted, cheaper, personalised and has fewer negative side effects.

Mobile and wearable devices such as phones or fitness trackers are now routinely used for preventive health. They monitor physiological data and behaviour, increase self-awareness and encourage behaviour change. They are also starting to be used by medical professionals to diagnose and monitor diseases. So far, the use of these devices for intervention and treatment has been limited to apps that issue reminders to exercise, guide us through meditation, or provide support for cognitive behavioural therapy. In 2019 this technology will expand into the world of mainstream therapeutic intervention.
