Samsung – Galaxy Fold: Unveiling
The Galaxy Fold contains two AMOLED displays; its front cover contains a small, 4.6-inch display in the centre designed for one-handed use, and the device can fold open to expose a 7.3-inch display. Samsung rated the fold mechanism as supporting up to 200,000 uses. The tablet screen contains a large notch in the top-right corner, and is coated with a custom multi-layer laminate in lieu of glass. Its power button contains a fingerprint reader. Samsung did not state which system-on-chip it uses in the Galaxy Fold, beyond that it is a “state-of-the-art” CPU with a 7 nanometer production process, contains 12 GB of RAM, and has 512 GB of non-expandable storage. The Galaxy Fold will be sold with a 5G variant.
The device contains two batteries split between the two halves, totaling a 4380 mAh capacity. The Galaxy Fold contains various cameras, using the same sensors equipped on the Galaxy S10+, including three rear-facing camera lenses (12-megapixel, 12-megapixel telephoto, and 16-megapixel), as well as a 10-megapixel front-facing camera on the cover, and a second 10-megapixel front-facing camera, accompanied by an RGB depth sensor, on the inside screen.
The Galaxy Fold will ship with Android 9.0 “Pie” and Samsung’s One UI software; supported apps will be able to transition between phone and tablet-oriented layouts when the user opens up the display. Alternatively, the user can multitask with up to three different apps at once.
