The year about to end was the year of the foldable smartphone.
Samsung, Motorola, and Huawei have already introduced their new foldable models, and others are about to follow. But who is flexing it best?
Samsung Galaxy Fold: one million sold
Of course, the Galaxy Fold, Samsung’s first folding smartphone, should not be missing from this list. The manufacturer was the first to present this at its unpacked event on 20 February 2019, which has caused great amazement.
The unit has two separate screens: a 4.6-inch external display with a 21:9 aspect ratio, and a 7.3-inch foldable screen that folds out like a book. The Galaxy Fold has a completely different design than the Royole FlexPai or the Huawei solution for the Mate X, for example. With Samsung, the foldable display is protected by the case when closed.
Under the hood works the Snapdragon 855, which also powers the Galaxy S10+. In addition, there is 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage, while the power is provided by a 4,380 mAh battery, which is divided into two parts due to the folding design.
From a software perspective, Samsung has worked closely with Google to create a new experience, especially from a multitasking perspective. So you can run and use three apps at the same time.
The Galaxy Fold is available now. The selling price is a whopping $1,980. Despite the huge price tag, Samsung says it has already sold more than one million Galaxy Folds, making the South Korean company’s first foldable smartphone a bit of a hit. There’s also a 5G version available for $2,299.99. More
