Samsung Galaxy Fold

Article Written By: Kevin Didi


The Samsung Galaxy Fold is Samsung’s newest venture into the rapidly growing foldable phone market. Phone giants such as Huawei and Motorola are among companies who have recently showcased a foldable phone, but Samsung is certainly one of the largest companies to do so.

When a foldable phone is closed, the user has access to a secondary outside display, but when opened, the phone uses a tablet-like screen. When using an app on the outside display, the app is readily available on the inside display, allowing a seamless transfer between screens. The Galaxy Fold also has a fingerprint scanner on the side, allowing for the phone to be unlocked in either position.

The phone’s boasts a 7.3” QXGA display for its flipped tablet mode, and a 4.6” HD+ Super display for the outer folded screen. The cover also has a regular selfie camera. The front of the phone uses a dual camera and the rear uses a triple camera. The battery capacity is 4380 mAh, which is significantly more than the Samsung’s current flagship, the S10, and Apple’s competing iPhone X. Internally, the phone boasts a 7nm eight core processor with 12GB of RAM and 512GB internal storage. Other features of the Galaxy Fold include support for 5G mobile data and wireless fast charging.

However, all these features do have a hefty price. Samsung’s previous flagship, the Note 9, cost $1000. The Galaxy Fold is nearly double this price, coming in at $1980. The price becomes more reasonable when considering that the phone functions as both a high-end phone and a tablet, and the fact that this is one of the first foldable phones on the market.
