Years have been passed of launching Android phones, in the starting android phones was launch for a very less price whereas if we compare it to now the price has been increasing year by year, time by time, or we can also say that technology by technology. In this time period, many changes have been taking place such as earlier their were fewer brands but now there are a large number of brands in the market, with this, the main motive now is to give larger display size so that people should have more display content at one go. Also, you would know that earlier there was no notch, but now every smartphone is coming with a notch. You can also call it as earlier the display size was less and now more with the same size of the smartphone.


With this everytime when a new smartphone is being launched new display size and design is seen. It all started from the basic screen with a medium size smartphone to a larger display with a foldable smartphone, you can take an example of Samsung Galaxy S10(new foldable phone by Samsung). Many brands are also launching their new foldable phone by next year.

Today, everyone is running towards high-end featured smartphones because it genuinely has some of the nice features and some people doesn’t think about the price. These flagships give many features which you would have never considered.
