Samsung Officially Unveiled The First Foldable Phone for $1980
Okay, the first foldable phone now has an official name – Samsung Galaxy Fold – just like its name, the phone is quite incredible in its functionality. This is not what we are saying but the company revealed everything about the smartphone and what it can do. In addition to that, Samsung Official also revealed that they are planning to launch the Galaxy fold on April 26th, starting at $1980 (that is twice the starting price of Samsung Galaxy S9 or iPhone XS) in the States. Moreover, they are giving a free pair of Samsung’s new wireless earbuds. The good news here is that there will be both an LTE and 5g version of Galaxy Fold.
Now coming to the design, just as thought, the Samsung Galaxy Fold features a new 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display that allows the phone itself to have a tablet-sized screen that can be folded to fit into a pocket. Samsung said it made a hinge with interlocking gears, which is hidden away in the casing.
The Storage & RAM
Samsung is using 512GB of Universal Flash Storage 3.0 (eUFS) for fast speeds, alongside a Qualcomm 7nm octa-core processor and 12GB of RAM.
It was revealed that Samsung even built two batteries for its Galaxy Fold, that are separated by the fold but combined in the Android operating system to represent a total of 4,380 mAh.
There is good news for the picture freaks as the new Samsung Galaxy Fold has packed six cameras – three in the back, two on the inside and one on the cover. These cameras feature the same sensors as that of the Samsung Galaxy S10. There’s a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera, alongside 12-megapixel wide-angle and telephoto cameras at the rear, and a 10-megapixel cover camera for selfies.
It was revealed that Samsung is also creating four colors for the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
Besides this, you can also run three apps at once using the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Apps like WhatsApp, Microsoft Office, and YouTube have all been optimized for the new display and modes, and Samsung has been working with Google to ensure Android 9 Pie fully supports this display. Great, isn’t it?
