Samsung Galaxy Fold announced
Samsung has officially announced its new foldable smartphone called the Galaxy Fold.
The smartphone, when folded, is a 4.6-inch display that transforms into a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display that can run three apps simultaneously and seamless app continuity — what you view on your outside screen is easily transferred when you unfold it.
The device is also one of the first to sport the UFS 3.0 storage system, which the company touts to be twice as fast as its predecessor. It’s also one of the first Samsung devices to sport six cameras in a single device — one at the front, three at the back, when folded, and two at the inside.
The Galaxy Fold comes in four colors — Cosmo Black, Space Silver, Martian Green and Astro Blue — and its hinges can be replaced with another color, too.
