It took long, but it arrived. Samsung presented on Wednesday (20) its folding model. It’s officially called the Galaxy Fold. After speculation, a presentation of technology testing for the market and leaks at the time, the device has finally been confirmed. And it should usher in a whole new category in the mobile device industry.
The presentation featured four colors and a specialized hinge for constant opening and closing. There are two Infinity Flex Display screens. One is external smaller, AMOLED of 4.6 inches and resolution of 840 x 1,960. And a larger, internal Super AMOLED is of 7.3 inches with resolution of 1,536 x 2,152.
The (unconfirmed) processor has 7-nm architecture and it comes with 12 GB of RAM. Also, with 512 GB internal storage at high-speed access with Universal Flash Storage 3.0 (eUFS). This allows for so-called application continuity. That is, what is viewed from the outside can be switched to the internal screen at any time. You can also multi-task the larger display with up to 3 simultaneous apps.
The Galaxy Fold comes with no less than six cameras. A front of the outside, 10 MP with f / 2.2 aperture. Two internal, one of 10 MP f / 2.2 and another of 8 MP of RGB depth f / 1.9. And three in the rear, one with 16 MP wide-angle f / 2.2, another 12 MP wide-angle dual pixel AF f / 1.5 f / 2.4 and the third of 12 MP telephoto with autofocus PDAF f / 2.4 with 2x optical zoom.
The sound comes from AKG, which is also from Samsung. This is all powered by two batteries which together total 4,380 mAh. The operating system is Android Pie.
Galaxy Users will have access to YouTube Premium. The estimated price is $ 1,980 ($ 7,773 in direct conversion) and sales start on April 26, with both 4G and 5G versions.
