The year 2019 is officially the year when foldable phones are actually taking the stage. Phone makers like Huawei, TCL, Motorola shared insightful details about their folding plans at MWC 2019 which we extensively covered here.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold is bold and exciting. Previously at the company’s event in San Francisco, Samsung made an announcement that its first foldable will cost around $1,980 and will be available for sales in various markets from April 26. As of now, more details about Samsung’s innovative product have been revealed via Cnet which shows that the phone represents a new form factor altogether.
Samsung Galaxy Fold features a foldable OLED screen. When the phone is closed, it has a secondary 4.6-inch display which works like the phone cover. The phone opens like a book to make itself a 7.3-inch tablet. The phone has the “Infinity Flex Display” which hides the line across the center of the screen. The fancy plastic material will let the screen flex and fold hundreds of time without breaking. Additionally, the apps will switch smoothly between display sizes thanks to Google’s upgraded operating system.
