Samsung's foldable smartphone just moved closer to release
As is often the case, the certification in question doesn’t include any details about the smartphone’s internals. However, it does suggest that Samsung’s foldable smartphone, which is set to be called the Galaxy Fold, will have a much wider release than initially expected.
In addition to a potential release in China, Samsung has previously been spotted testing variants for the US, Europe, and its home market of South Korea under the model numbers SM-F900U, SM-F900F, and SM-F900A respectively.
The device, which could cost as much as $2,000 will land with a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display. This will be paired with a secondary 4.6-inch panel that allows the device to be used as a traditional smartphone. Speaking of which, a triple-camera setup complete with wide-angle and telephoto cameras is to be expected on the rear, much like Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy S10+.
Internally, the premium offering will land powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 in the US. 5G capabilities aren’t to be expected but the presence of 12GB of RAM and as much as 1TB of storage is rumored. A 4,400mAh battery could also be included alongside Android 9 Pie complete with the One UI overlay on top.
