I have branded myself the foldable evangelist for a minute now. From foldable smartphones to laptops, I am very fascinated by bending technology. When did screens begin to fold and flip, and what’s the future like? You can bet I will be at the forefront of following up on this tech.
Actually, I have a review of this 1st generation foldable laptop from Asus that I recently tested. Check back on Gadgets Africa for that soon. Till then, here is a list of my top foldable smartphones that you can try to buy in Kenya this early 2023.

There is a slim hinge that rotates 360 degrees to put the twin screens on either side. You can easily multitask, running two apps on different sides of the device.
The system is run by a Snapdragon 888 5G Chipset, 4449 MAh Battery, 512 GB Storage, and 8 GB RAM.
