The Samsung Galaxy Fold is a folding phone which was first shown off in a heavily disguised form at Samsung’s Developer Conference in San Francisco on November 7, 2018. It was then the star of the show at the Galaxy Unpacked live event on Wednesday 20 February, 2019.
Until Unpacked, it was widely thought that the handset would be called the Samsung Galaxy X, but it was confirmed at the February event that it will be actually be called the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold is more than just a smartphone. It’s a foldable device that can transform from phone to tablet and back again.
Featuring an Infinity Flex display, the Samsung Galaxy Fold goes from a 4.6-inch display for phone mode and folds out to reveal a separate 7.3-inch display on the inside. Don’t worry, Samsung hasn’t emphasised the large screen experience over the small screen, as the Fold has also been designed to be a comfortable to hold when folded. The 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Dynamic AMOLED display has a resolution of 2,152 × 1,536 pixels, while the smaller Super AMOLED 4.6-inch display has a resolution of 1,680 x 720 pixels.
The fold is comprised of a sophisticated hinge system with multiple interlocking gears, hidden inside the spine. That fold is tested using a series of machines that repeatedly fold and unfold the phone. Samsung says that stress test folds a device 200,000 times, and takes around a week to complete.
Samsung worked with Google and the Android developer community to tailor apps like WhatsApp, Microsoft Office, and YouTube. The interior screen is so big it can be used for three-app multitasking. You can watch a video, chat about it, and browse options on the web all at the same time. Samsung has showed this off with YouTube running on the left, a WhatsApp chat window at the top right, and a web browser at the bottom right.
