We've been following rumours that Lenovo-owned Motorola is looking at cracking the folding phone market (such as it is) with its very own entry -- a folding version of the iconic Motorola RAZR.

Samsung puts its Galaxy Fold to the test… over and over again

If we didn't know any better, we'd say that this video of Samsung's Galaxy Fold smartphones being tested was part of a much longer video.

Xiaomi’s got a Super Charge Turbo charging system for smartphones waiting in the wings

Super. Charge. Turbo. All words that bring to mind a motorised vehicle flying by quick enough to demolish a building on impact (note: Do not try that at home). Combine them and you’ve got Xiaomi’s new Super Charge Turbo fast-charging system for smartphones, a setup the company reckons will get you from 0 to 100(%) with a 4,000mAh battery in just 17 minutes.
