Samsung Unveils The Galaxy Fold
27 February, 2019 | Technology
Samsung has finally unveiled the highly anticipated foldable smartphone called the Galaxy Fold.
At this years event, Samsung showed off the Galaxy Fold in full, both unfolded in tablet form and folded into a smartphone.
The device which when unfolded has a display of 7.3 inches, and folded 4.6 inches, is definitely part of Samsung’s “luxury” range with a $1,980 price tag.
It is scheduled to come out on the 26th April and will be available in 4 different colours. The hinge supposedly isn’t too chunky either which will also be colour customisable.
The Galaxy Fold’s specification is also pretty impressive too with:
- 6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED screen
- 3-inch QXGA+ Dynamic AMOLED
- 7-nanometer processor
- 12GB of RAM
- Up to 512GB of storage with universal flash storage
- Android 9 Pie
- A front camera with dual 10-megapixel, selfie cam + 8-megapixel depth cam
- A rear camera with 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle cam, 12-megapixel wide angle lens, and 12-megapixel telephoto lens
- Two batteries totalling 4,380 mAh
- Wired and wireless charging
- Available in 4G and 5G

Despite the impressive spec, it looks like Samsung’s Galaxy Fold may have already been trumped by the Huawei Mate X, which was unveiled at this year’s Mobile World Congress conference. The Mate X has larger screen, a cleaner design and faster 5G connectivity. However, when it launches in June, it will set you back a massive $2,600!
These aren’t the only foldable devices set to be released this year with Oppo and Xiaomi planning to announce foldable devices, as well as Motorola who are set to release a foldable phone branded as the iconic Razr.
