It Features Two Displays
The smartphone comes with two displays. One display is visible on the outside and the other one is visible when the phone is opened. The concept of this smartphone is pretty similar to a notebook. You open the smartphone to view it in a larger tablet-like display. When closed, the foldable smartphone measures 4.6-inch and sports an AMOLED display with an aspect ratio of 21:9. Similarly, when opened, the smartphone turns into a large 7.3-inch QXGA+ Dynamic AMOLED display.
You can make use of the two displays depending on your usage. The smaller mobile display can be used for simple tasks like calling, texting and social media. Likewise, the bigger tablet-like display can be used for gaming, watching movies and multi-tasking between different apps. Also, when folded, Galaxy Fold is compact enough to easily fit in your pocket.
It becomes pretty obvious that the world’s first foldable smartphone will come with amazing hardware. Under the hood it is powered by a powerful 7nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 or 8nm Samsung Exynos 9820 processor. For all its impressive multi-tasking capabilities, the foldable smartphone is backed with 12GB of RAM. Additionally, for storage the smartphone sports 512GB internal storage – which is massive.
Furthermore, the smartphone is backed by a powerful 4380mAh battery. To be fair, we expected the Galaxy Fold to be one of the 5000mAh battery mobile phones because of its powerful features and specifications. Moreover, just like the display, even the battery has been split in two halves to power both ends of the smartphone. Along with being one of the wireless charging mobile phones, Galaxy Fold also supports the fast charging feature.
A Unique & Durable Hinge
The foldable design of the smartphone pretty much depends on the hinge. It is the hinge that allows the Galaxy Fold to be opened and closed. It is a durable system which is built with interlocking gears which makes the opening and closing process extremely smooth. Additionally, the hinge is built to withstand constant opening and closing without a hitch. However, when you look at the smartphone, you will not see the hinge. This unique hinge is smartly hidden behind the spine for an elegant look.
App Continuity & Incredible Multi-Tasking
The Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone is claimed as ‘a one of kind luxury device’. And, the device is true to this claim. One of the most impressive and stunning feature on this phone is ‘App Continuity’. Until now, all the latest Android mobile phones only offer multi-tasking between two apps. However, with Galaxy Fold, multi-tasking between three apps has been made possible. This feature will allow apps to adapt between multiple display form factors.
All thanks to the massive 12GB of RAM, you can now multi-task between 3 apps simultaneously. For instance, it is now possible to watch a YouTube video while texting your friends and also browse through the internet at the same time. It is most definitely one of the coolest features of this smartphone.
Six Cameras in All
If you thought triple camera mobile phones were the next trend in the smartphone industry, then you have no idea what’s coming. Samsung Galaxy Fold does not just have three or four cameras, but includes a total number of six cameras. Overall, the smartphone comes with three separate camera setups. It supports a triple camera setup on the rear, dual camera setup on the front, and a single camera on the cover – totally six lenses. Here’s how the different camera setups work:
Rear camera: The triple camera setup supports a 16MP ultra-wide lens with f/2.2 aperture, a 12MP wide-angle lens with f/1.5 – f/2.4 aperture and a 12MP telephoto lens with f/2.4 aperture.
