Galaxy Fold

Samsung has announced the Galaxy Fold, a highly anticipated addition to the emerging folding smartphone market.

The new Galaxy Fold features a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display and a whopping 6 camera lenses!

When folded, the device has a 4.6-inch HD+ Super AMOILED cover screen with a 10-megapixel f/2.2 selfie camera. To the rear is a triple camera setup with 16mp ultra-wide f/2.2, 12mp wide-angle Dual Pixel AF OIS f/1.5-2.4 and 12mp telephoto PDAF OIS f/2.4 camera with 2x optical zoom

When unfolded to reveal the 7.3-inch QXVGA+ Dynamic AMOLED screen there's a dual camera with 10mp f/2.2 selfie camera and 8mp RGB f/1.9 depth camera. There's a massive 12GB RAM and 512GB storage as well as a powerful 4380hAH battery

The Galaxy Fold is said to be arriving in the UK on 3 May and will have a price tag of around £1800, based on the USA pricing of $2000. There will be a 5G model available as well as an LTE model and there will be 4 colours to choose from, as well as being able to customise the hinge colour. 

 

Folding smartphones - the future?

The Galaxy Fold is the sleekest looking folding smartphone released to date - other models such as the Royole FlexPai have already been announced but lack something in the design. 

The race to release the best folding device is certainly on - Xiaomi is working on a double-folding model which is in development with another mystery company, and Huawei is rumoured to be launching a folding model very soon, with teaser images already shared on social media.

From Samsung:

A Whole New Experience

Galaxy Fold was designed with smartphone users in mind – driven by bigger and better form factors that boost their experiences. Galaxy Fold changes to the screen you need, the moment you need it. Slip it out of your pocket for one-handed calls, texts and more, then open for endless multitasking and higher quality viewing on our largest mobile display for presentations, digital magazines, movies, and AR content.

The unique UX built just for Galaxy Fold, provides new ways to get the most out of your smartphone:

Multi-Active Window: The possibilities are virtually endless with Galaxy Fold – designed for the ultimate multitasker. You can open up to three active apps simultaneously on the main display so you can surf, text, work, watch and share without losing a beat.

App Continuity: Make intuitive, seamless transitions between the cover and the main displays. As Galaxy Fold opens and closes, apps will automatically show up where you leave off. When you’re ready to take a photo, make in-depth edits, or want to take a closer look at your feed, open the display for a big screen and fuller canvas.

Samsung worked with Google and the Android developer community to ensure that apps and services were available for the Galaxy Fold’s unique experience.

 

Premium Performance Built to Fold

Galaxy Fold is built for heavy and intense use whether it’s working, playing or sharing - all of which requires advanced performance. Packed with powerful hardware, the Galaxy Fold is more than up to the task.

Do More: To ensure everything runs smoothly, even with running three apps simultaneously, Samsung equipped Galaxy Fold with a high-powered, next-generation AP chipset and 12GB of RAM with PC-like performance. The sophisticated dual battery system was specifically engineered to keep up with you. Galaxy Fold is also capable of charging itself and a second device simultaneously via Wireless PowerShare, while connected to a regular charger so you can leave your second charger at home.

Ultimate Multimedia Experience: The Galaxy Fold is designed for entertainment. Thanks to immersive visuals on the Dynamic AMOLED display and crisp, clear sound by AKG with the stereo speakers, your favourite movies and games come to life in rich sound and colour.

Our Most Versatile Camera Yet: No matter which way you hold - or fold - the device, a camera will be ready to capture the scene, so you never miss the moment. With six lenses - three in the back, two on the inside and one on the cover - the Galaxy Fold camera system has flexibility built in. Galaxy Fold introduces a new level of multitasking, allowing you to use other apps during a video call.
