Samsung launched 5 exciting devices this week including their first ever foldable smartphone – Galaxy Fold.
Samsung, being the world’s largest smartphone manufacturer has successfully made a splash with the announcement and reveal.
The Galaxy Fold might not be the kind of smartphone everyone wants to own but it has surely set a milestone in innovation with the creation.
Samsung Galaxy Fold Price
The Samsung Galaxy Fold was announced at $1,950. This means that in Pakistan, the expected price of the Galaxy Fold will easily fall in between PKR 3,00,000-3,50,000.
Samsung Galaxy Fold Specifications
As of now, we know that the Galaxy Fold is made up of 2 screens. The outside is of 4.6in (when the device is closed like a book) and 7.3in (when stretched).
The display has been termed as the ‘Infinity Flex Display’ however it is still unsure if its plastic or glass as of yet.
Samsung has touted the inclusion of two separate batteries running the device, we are still unsure how long can the battery last.
Samsung has also touted the proprietary articulated spine, as well as the coating on the glass that protects the foldable part from wear-and-tear damage. No repair shops will be able to fix your cracked screen.
The Galaxy Fold runs on Android Pie with Samsung’s new One UI interface on top. However, support for foldable Android devices is yet to come out.
We just announced support for foldables at #AndroidDevSummit, a new form factor coming next year from Android partners.
