Samsung finally brings its flexible display into the fold with a true smartphone-tablet hybrid.
Alongside its 2019 range of premium Galaxy S10 handsets, Samsung revealed the Galaxy Fold; the company's first foray into foldable displays.
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 otherwise identical to its S10 range.
