$2,000 Phone - Galaxy Fold

It's beautiful. I'm getting one if it has 5G capabilities.

https://www.samsung.com/global/galaxy/galaxy-fold/

https://www.theverge.com/2019/2/20/1...e-announcement

Samsung first teased its foldable phone back in November, and at the companyís Galaxy Unpacked event today, itís further detailing its foldable plans. Samsungís foldable now has a name, the Samsung Galaxy Fold, and the company is revealing more about what this unique smartphone can do. Samsung is planning to launch the Galaxy Fold on April 26th, starting at $1,980, through AT&T and T-Mobile in the US, with a free pair of Samsungís new wireless earbuds. There will be both an LTE and 5G version of the Galaxy Fold, and Samsung is even planning on launching the device in Europe on May 3rd, starting at 2,000 euros.

Samsung is using a new 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display that allows the phone itself to have a tablet-sized screen that can be folded to fit into a pocket. The main display is QXGA+ resolution (4.2:3), and when itís folded, a smaller 4.6-inch HD+ (12:9) display is used for the phone mode. Samsung is using 512GB of Universal Flash Storage 3.0 (eUFS) for fast speeds, alongside a Qualcomm 7nm octa-core processor and 12GB of RAM. Samsung has even built two batteries for its Galaxy Fold, that are separated by the fold but combined in the Android operating system to represent a total of 4,380 mAh.

Samsung has built a sturdy backbone to the device, with a hinge system that has multiple interlocking gears. All of these gears are hidden at the rear of the device, and allow the Galaxy Fold to transform from tablet to phone modes. Samsung says itís able to fold at least 200,000 times, which works out to over 5 years if you fold it 100 times a day. At the rear of the device thereís also a triple-camera system that will be used for both tablet and phone modes. Thereís a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera, alongside 12-megapixel wide-angle and telephoto cameras at the rear, and a 10-megapixel cover camera for selfies. Samsung is also creating four different colors for the Galaxy Fold, but itís the main tablet display thatís key here.

Samsung is allowing the Galaxy Fold to run three apps at once on this Android device, and itís using an app continuity system to adjust these apps when you move between tablet and phone modes. Apps like WhatsApp, Microsoft Office, and YouTube have all been optimized for the new display and modes, and Samsung has been working with Google to ensure Android 9 Pie fully supports this display.

Samsung demonstrated a variety of apps running in this mode, and the switching from phone to tablet and vice versa. It looks rather smooth in the software right now, but itís fair to say that the Galaxy Fold looks far better when itís folded out than being used as a traditional phone. The phone display is clearly designed to be used with one hand, but itís flanked by large bezels that arenít found on the tablet mode. Weíll need to get a closer look at the Galaxy Fold to find out exactly how this impacts the device usability, though.

Samsung isnít the only smartphone maker creating a foldable device, but itís certainly one of the first to make it widely available. Xiaomi teased its own folding phone recently, that looked like the best concept weíve seen so far. Huawei is also reportedly planning to release a foldable handset this year, and Lenovo has started to tease its own prototype. LG has also been developing flexible OLED displays and TVs that roll up into a box. If all these manufacturers progress toward shipping a device like Samsung, then expect to see a lot of foldable phones in 2019 and beyond.

If it’s 5G? Where you gonna get 5G service anytime soon? Instead of early adapting why not wait until the second generation and let the price drop and 5G become available?

Good question - I just heard within the next year carriers will start coming out with it. I'm going to switch to Verizon from Sprint. I'm tired of shitty data.

That's ridiculous.

No way in hell would I ever pay $2k for a phone/tablet. You'd have to really twist my arm to pay even a 1/4th of that amount

Plus I don't like having a damn brick in my pants.

I have an S8+ and I HATE fiddling with it when its not in the my charging case. Its too thin and slippery for me to hold onto and type comfortably.

I don't think I'll ever understand early adopters. Just wait a year or two for the form factor to become mainstream and get it for less than half the price or better.

Silly gimmick at this point. 3-5 years from now, it will be common and actually structurally solid enough to be capable of lasting over time.

I'm curious how many people really need a screen that big for a phone.

My understanding is you fold it in half to use as a phone. Open it up to use it as a tablet.
