Samsung announce the first flodable smartphone

Samsung’s Galaxy line may have turned 10 on Wednesday, but Samsung kicked off its latest event talking about its foldable future, specifically the Galaxy Fold.

Available on April 26 for a starting price of an eye-popping $1,980, the newest Galaxy features a 4.6-inch display when closed and a 7.3-inch display when opened.

The Galaxy Fold will be offered in four color options: black, green, silver and blue. The device packs six cameras – three on the back, two on the inside and one on the front, as well as 512 GB of storage and 12 GB of RAM. The nearly $2,000 price is for the 4G LTE model, though Samsung says a 5G version will also be available

A fingerprint sensor is on the side of the phone for unlocking the device, similar to the new Galaxy S10e which places its fingerprint sensor on its side power button. Two batteries, split across each side of the phone, powers the foldable.

When plugged into a charger the device can take advantage of Samsung’s new “Wireless PowerShare” feature to wirelessly charge other devices, such as the company’s new Galaxy Buds earbuds, directly from the Fold while it simultaneously recharges itself.
