Samsung Electronics on Thursday (21 Feb 2019) unveiled a slate of devices that showcase its innovations in the field.
It boasts one of the most outstanding features in the crowded smartphone market now – Samsung’s largest-ever smartphone display in a foldable format. Galaxy Fold features the world’s first 7.3inch Infinity Flex Display, which folds into a compact device with a cover display.
This is made possible with the invention of a new polymer layer and creating a display around 50 percent thinner than the typical smartphone display.
The transition between the cover and the main display is touted to be seamless. Slip it out of your pocket for one-handed calls, texts and other functions. 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 have a closer look at the feed, open the display for a big screen and fuller canvas.
To ensure everything runs smoothly, even when running three apps simultaneously, Samsung equipped Galaxy Fold with a high-powered, next-generation AP chipset and 12GB of RAM with PC-like performance.
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.
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 favorite movies and games come to life in rich sound and color.
Its camera is also versatile. 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. It has six lenses— three in the back, two on the inside and one on the cover.
Galaxy Fold will be launching in Singapore in Q2 2019, and will retail at more than USD$1,980.
