Samsung Galaxy Fold Price, Specifications and Features!
After years of rumors, leaks and numerous reports Samsung launched the Galaxy fold this February. For everyone unaware, the Galaxy Fold is Samsung’s foldable tablet smartphone. Normally, it looks just like any other tablet but it can be folded from the middle. When folded, it looks like a smartphone and it can be easily carried. Though it is not light due to the heavy components still it is more portable than a tablet when folded.
The Foldable Display: How Does it work?
You must be wondering, how does the device fold from the middle without the screen breaking. Well, technology has come a long way ahead and thanks to flexible OLED screen technology the Galaxy fold is a reality today. Unlike LCD displays which are generally built around glass the OLED display on the Fold is printed on a plastic base and it can be basically curved in different ways. The plastic-based OLED screen on the Fold can be thus folded from the middle without breaking the screen itself.
Furthermore, the device also has a smaller 4.6-inch screen on the outer side. When folded, this outer side display can be used as a regular smartphone. However, the display feels a bit long. Also, there are magnets around the corner of the displays so when you fold the tablet it folds and sticks together perfectly. You can also spot the big notch on the right side of the screen while it is unfolded. The notch holds both the front cameras and other sensors. Below are the specifications of the Galaxy Fold.
