Samsung teased its foldable smartphone back in November last year. Now, the South Korean manufacturer has finally revealed the same with the monicker Samsung Galaxy Fold. That being said, the company also unveiled its Samsung Galaxy S10-lineup during the Galaxy Unpacked event.

Notably, the new Samsung Galaxy Fold is a phone-tablet hybrid that kicks off a new smartphone category. When folded it allows one-handed use, and when unfurled, it will enable to be used as a regular tablet. The company said both LTE and 5G versions of the handset will be available.

Samsung Galaxy Fold: Appearance and Design

Galaxy Fold

Samsung Galaxy Fold uses a 7.3-inch Infinity Display Flex Display that allows the phone to have a tablet-sized display that can fold into the size of a smartphone. The main (4:2:3) display has a QXGA+ resolution of 1536 x 2152 pixels while the secondary (12:9) screen is of 4.6 inches with 840 x 1960 pixel resolution. The phone works on a hinge system that has “multiple interlocking gears”. The gears are hidden at the rear of the device allowing that transformation to take place.

The handset doesn’t completely fold in half which is why there is a small gap in the centre when closed. When folded, the massive bezels can be seen around the secondary display. It seems to use a plastic cover to protect it from scratches. The foldable smartphone differs from previous foldable designs and will likely have a wider release compared to the others.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold will be available in four colour options. The device can run three apps all at once and uses an app continuity system to adjust these apps in transformation. The standard apps like What’s App, Microsoft Office and YouTube have been optimised to run smoothly on these new displays. Samsung has been working with Google to ensure that Android 9 Pie and the new displays work hand-in-hand. The company gave a demonstration with Google Maps at the event. Though the app was launched on the smaller screen, the maps opened up on the same spot on a larger display when unfolded.
