Samsung Galaxy Fold - what to expect

Recommended Posts


Samsung, on February 20, announced Galaxy Fold along with rest of the their Galaxy lineup. All eyes were on their newest and priciest addition called Galaxy Fold. This is a the foldable phone/ tab with 12GB RAM and 512GB storage with a price tag of about $2000. 


Samsung’s first foldable smartphone has been teased since last fall, and today, we got a few more details about what this device can do. When folded, the Galaxy Fold measures 4.6 inches, and it opens up to a 7.3-inch display tablet. You can browse apps on the phone as you would regularly and unfold the device to maximize the resolution. (Samsung calls this “app continuity.”) In the tablet mode, the device can handle up to three windows at the same time for multitasking. There also seems to be a corner notch on one side of the screen. A center line that divides the device into two halves is somewhat visible, but only when looked at from a slight angle. We’ll provide more details on this in the hands-on when we get a chance to check out the device ourselves.

Internally, it will come with 12GB of RAM, 512GB of memory, and two batteries that add up to a 4,380mAh. The Fold has six cameras: three in the back, two selfie cams, and one in the cover. A fingerprint sensor is on the side so you can unlock it when it’s in folded mode. It’ll be available in four colors: black, silver, a neon-ish green / yellow, and blue. The hinge color can also be partially customized, depending on what color you choose.

The Galaxy Fold comes in both LTE and Wi-Fi versions starting at $1,980, and it comes out on April 26th.

Is it too pricey? 


In Samsung's defense, the Galaxy Fold does pack more components. In addition to the extra screen, bigger battery, wireless charging coil and dual AKG speakers, this device also has a total of six cameras to ensure all three sides -- front and back when folded plus the tablet side when opened -- are covered.

You have a main triple set consisting of a 16MP f/2.2 123-degree ultra-wide shooter, a 12MP f/2.4 telephoto camera with optical stabilization, and a 12MP dual-pixel wide camera also with optical stabilization plus variable aperture -- f/1.5 and f/2.4. Then there's a dual selfie camera set on the tablet screen side: you'll be using the 10MP dual-pixel f/2.2 wide camera, which is assisted by an 8MP f/1.9 RGB depth camera. Sadly, this part eats up some of the screen space at the top right corner, but it's otherwise a near-all-screen tablet. Last but not least, when folded, you still have a 10MP dual-pixel f/2.2 front camera.

I am still not convinced even a device like this justify a $2000 price tag. If I ever have this much money, I'd probably build a gaming PC and still be able to save 😄
