Aside from the new Galaxy S10s. Samsung has announced its widely anticipated foldable phone in the name of Galaxy Fold – and we’re actually getting excited.
Being rumored for many years, Samsung has now finally demonstrated a market-viable foldable phone. According to the South Korean company, they have invented a smooth hinge system in order to achieve an un-noticeable hinge between the middle. The main 7.3-inch display (when the phone was unfolded) runs at a resolution of 1536 x 2152 px, and when folded, scales down to 4.6-inch, which effectively translates to 840 x 1960 px.
They built two batteries that fits on each side of the device, combining them into a single power source that enable them to power the Galaxy Fold.
In terms of specifications, the 7nm chipset hasn’t been specified yet but what we know is that it comes in 512GB of storage in the eUFS 3.0 standard, and comes in four colors, namely Cosmos Black, Space Silver, Martian Green and Astro Blue.
There’s also six cameras on the device, three on the back, two on the inside, and one in the front.
Samsung had also demonstrated the Fold’s capability, including app continuity that expands the screen of the app from one to another, letting you to use apps the way you want, three-app multi-tasking and seamless integration of the usual apps that we are used to, making new possibilities on using our casual Android apps.
Unfortunately, new concepts come in expensive prices, and we’re not surprised enough that the Galaxy Fold is priced at $1,980, available starting April 26th and comes in LTE and 5G variants.
