Description

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is the company's first foldable smartphone with a foldable "Infinity Flex" display – and also one of its most expensive ever. When unfolded, this innovative handset offers a spacious, 7.3-inch OLED display. Folding the phone allows it to fit in a regular pocket, hiding its large screen in the process. A secondary, 4.6-inch display on the outside allows the phone to be used even in its folded state. In terms of specs, the Galaxy Fold offers the powerful Snapdragon 855 alongside tons of memory and storage. The versatile triple camera from the Galaxy S10 is also on board.
