Mobile World Congress 2019 in Barcelona is a 4-day-long event where companies from all over the world come together to share and showcase their newest products, latest innovations, and leading technology. It is here where Samsung unveiled their latest device, the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
The Galaxy Fold is Samsung’s first truly flexible device. It is made up of two screens: a 4.6-inch one on the outside when folded, and a 7.3-inch display when opened. It is a compact smartphone when closed and a tablet when fully opened. The new technology that lets one repeatedly open and close the device without screen degradation is called Infinity Flex.
The Galaxy Fold comes with 12 GBs of RAM and 2 batteries, one on each side of the foldable phone. It has 6 cameras: 3 on the rear that feature a 12 megapixel wide angle camera, a 12 megapixel telephoto camera and a 16 megapixel ultra-wide camera. The 2 cameras inside are a 10 megapixel selfie camera and an 8 megapixel depth camera. The 1 camera on the front is a 10 megapixel selfie camera. It comes with 512 GB of internal storage with no option to expand via microSD card.
The phone will be available on April 26, 2019, with a starting price tag of $1,980. Initially it will only be available for At&T and T-Mobile in the US. It will come in 4 colors: cosmos black, space silver, Martian green and astro blue.
