Galaxy Fold: The internet reacts to Samsung's flexible phone

A Galaxy S10 Plus ad has been accidentally aired on TV ahead of Samsung's official announcement

It's officially called the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Interestingly, Samsung would also launch the Galaxy Fold in India soon.

After spending almost five years developing the technology underlying its foldable-screen phone, Samsung is clearly hoping for a big payoff.

Samsung is hosting its Unpacked event in San Francisco today, where the Galaxy S10 series will be announced, but will the same happen with the Galaxy Fold? The phones also feature onscreen ultrasonic fingerprint scanners, thus negating the need to change grips to unlock the phones.

Available in 4G and 5G versions, the phone is seen as a crucial product for Samsung as it tries to maintain its position as the biggest smartphone manufacturer against stiff competition from its Chinese rivals. The rear camera setup is a 16MP Ultra Wide angle camera with a f2.2 aperture.

To handle the extra load, Samsung picked a “7nm chipset” - the Snapdragon 855 – with 12GB of RAM and 512GB storage (fast UFS 3.0 storage to boot).

The device "breaks new ground because it answers skeptics who said that everything that could be done has been done", DJ Koh, chief executive of Samsung Electronics, said at the event.
