Launched in February this year, it looks like Samsung has taken a leap towards leading the mobile industry with its new product, The Samsung Galaxy Fold, which as the name suggests is a foldable phone. The Galaxy fold arrived alongside the much-anticipated Galaxy S10; however, it was the Galaxy Fold that stole the show and it was for good reason too.
The Galaxy Fold boasts some awesome features that may just cause envy among the owners of the iPhone X who might just want to reconsider the reasons that they are proud of with their iPhones. Samsung outdid themselves this time in an explosive way as the Galaxy Fold (the first of its kind from Samsung) has a dual screen (flips open) coupled with a 7.3 inch surface Infinity flex display (the foldable bit of the phone which still leaves a 4.6inch display available when folded).
This simply means that this latest product from Samsung is practically a Tablet that can be folded into a phone that has a capacity of 512GB 3.0 Universal Flash Storage that is backed up by the Qualcomm 7nm OCTA-Core processor with 12GB of RAM to boot.
If that is not enough, there are 2 batteries for the Galaxy Fold separated by the fold in the phone which according to Samsung will fold 200,000 times at minimum (if you were to open and fold the phone 100 times a day, you would be able to use the phone’s fold feature at least 5 years without any issues) which says a lot about this phone’s backbone durability.
If you are ready for more, continue reading as it only gets better! The phone also boasts a triple camera system that is functional in both phone and tablet modes. By some ingenious method the tech industry leader has managed to fit the phone with a 16 mega-pixel ultra wide camera with a 12-megapixel telephoto wide angle camera riding shotgun!
Now the 3rd camera is
Believe it or not, real-time multi-tasking is also among the incredible features included in this remarkable Samsung product that is going to give competitors a run for their money as the Fold is able to simultaneously run three apps at once on its Android platform that is adjustable using its inbuilt continuity feature to adjust open apps when moving between phone and tablet mode.
All popular applications such as WhatsApp, Messenger, Tagged, YouTube and Microsoft Office have been painstakingly optimized for the new display system. Google has also lent a hand and been included into the foray as Google has worked closely with Samsung to ensure that the Android 9 Pie completely supports the display.
According to the attendees at the launch, The Samsung Fold apparently looks better unfolded compared to when it is folded in and used as a conventional mobile device. Device usability or friendliness will not be known completely yet until the phone actually rolls out into the market somewhere between April and May this year and is expected to open with a price of $1,980.
Yes, at least the price tag settles the Samsung Fold as a premium mobile device which is going to cause some ripples on the waters of iPhone, Huawei and Xiaomi that has been working on a foldable phone based on its teasers. Huawei and Lenovo are also in the same boat, but it looks like Samsung has beaten their direct competitors to the finish line and without doubt, has taken them and the world by surprise!
