Get Into The Fold

It’s been confirmed smartphones with foldable displays will hit the market in 2019 after years of speculation and anticipation. Some say these folding phones will revolutionize the stagnant mobile world.

February 20, Samsung stole the show with the Galaxy Fold. The Fold features two screens: a 4.6-inch, HD+ Super AMOLED outer display with a 21:9 aspect ratio, and a 7.3-inch, QXGA+ Dynamic AMOLED inner “Infinity Flex” display with a 4.2:3 aspect ratio. Both screens feature rounded corners.

The current rumors suggest it will ship with the Snapdragon 855 chipset (the latest and greatest from Qualcomm) and two batteries. The Fold is home to six cameras. On the rear you’ll find a 16-megapixel, f/2.2 ultra-wide camera, a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera and a 12-megapixel telephoto sensor; on the inside is a 10-megapixel f/2.2 camera and an 8-megapixel f/1.9 RGB depth camera; on the front sits a 10-megapixel f/2.2 sensor.

If you can’t wait to get your hands on this new phone/tablet, it will be available through AT&T and T-Mobile in the U.S. starting on April 26th, and it will arrive in Europe on May 3rd. Retail starting price is $1,980 or 2,000 euros. It is said that the phone is as thick as the price.
