Samsung Galaxy Fold


Alongside its 2019 range of premium Galaxy S10 handsets, Samsung revealed the Galaxy Fold; the company's first foray into foldable displays. Originally set to launch before the middle of the year, production and durability issues saw Samsung make a hasty retreat from those original launch plans, with a September 2019 timeframe now set for the 'new' Galaxy Fold to appear.

Normally, this kind of experimental tech would come with a caution sticker slapped to it or a sacrifice of features and processing power so not to distract from the flagship phones but Samsung seems to be flexing its muscles with the Fold, giving punters a smartphone experience that should combine the best of the Samsung Galaxy S10 and Samsung Galaxy Note 10.

Design

  • Seamless foldable polymer display
  • Samsung says it's strengthened the fold and protective cover
  • Thumb rest fingerprint sensor
  • Right-aligned notch unfolded, big old bezel in cover mode

Camera

  • Rear triple camera with 16MP ultra wide (F2.2.), 12MP wide angle (Dual Pixel AF, OIS, F1.5, F2.4) and 12MP telephoto camera (PDAF, OIS, F2.4, 2X optical zoom)
  • Front 10MP selfie camera (F2.2), 8MP RGB depth camera (F1.9)
  • Cover camera (folded) front-facing 10MP (F2.2)

Performance

  • 7nm 64-bit Octa-core processor
  • 12GB RAM
  • 512GB internal memory, no microSD slot

Battery life

  • 4,380mAh battery
  • Wireless charging and fast charging supported

Early outlook

  • The Fold's early missteps have a single chance of success
