Samsung finally unveiled its foldable smartphone at its Galaxy S10 launch event last week. The device is called the Galaxy Fold and it’s going to be out in April. The company did spend a considerable amount of time talking about this device during the launch event but it has now put up a new video on YouTube which details the Galaxy Fold. It provides additional information about the durability of this device.
Durability is one thing that many customers will be concerned about. This device does have more moving parts than a conventional smartphone after all. Not to mention the fact that it has a flexible AMOLED display that’s capable of folding down the middle.
The video shows that when the device is folded, the Galaxy Fold does leave a small gap near the hinge. The logical explanation would be that Samsung has left this gap on purpose so as to prevent the two halves of the display from scratching each other when the device is closed.
Samsung also talks about some of the Galaxy Fold’s features in this video. Like the Galaxy S10, the Galaxy Fold also has reverse wireless charging, so it can be used to charge other devices. It also comes with support for Samsung DeX. Samsung also talks about the device’s triple rear camera which represent half of the six cameras in total that this device has. There are two on the inside while there’s an additional camera on top of the cover display.
The company has already confirmed that the Galaxy Fold is going to be out in April. The price is just below $2,000 which is a lot more than what an average customer would be willing to pay for a smartphone. Then again, the Galaxy Fold isn’t really meant for the average customer to begin with.
