1. Samsung Galaxy Fold specs
While most mobile devices can be characterized as either phones or phablets, the Samsung Galaxy Fold belongs to its own class. In its folded state, it’s a medium-sized mobile phone, and when it’s unfolded, it becomes a practical tablet. But what else will you get with the new Galaxy Fold? Here is a detailed look at the specs of the new Samsung model.
1. Design and display
The foldable technology used in the Samsung Galaxy Fold means this phone is unlike anything you have seen before. With a quiet but firm hinge mechanism, it can be unfolded to a tablet state and folded back to the smartphone dimensions.
As a result, the Galaxy Fold has not one, but two displays. The smaller one is a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED HD+ panel and is otherwise known as the cover display. The main display that you get after unfolding the device is a 7.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED panel that will definitely astonish you with the quality of graphics.
In the era when most top-notch smartphones come with tiny bezels or no bezels at all, the bezels of the cover display of the Samsung Galaxy Fold become even more visible. However, given that these bezels host a variety of equipment, including cameras and and an earpiece, the use of thicker bezels becomes more justified.
Samsung smartphones are usually in the avant-garde of astonishing mobile performance, and the Galaxy Fold is no exception. In addition to the one-of-a-kind design, the Samsung Galaxy Fold also features cutting-edge characteristics.
The octa-core 7nm Snapdragon 855 SoC is one of the most advanced processors available in the market today, and with 12GB of RAM, it promises lightning-fast performance in any situation. The whopping 512GB of storage with the UFS 3.0 technology allow you to load and use files quicker than ever before, and even though no storage expansion options are available in the Galaxy Fold, we are convinced that 512GB will last you for a long time.
In terms of software, the Samsung Galaxy Fold runs Android 9.0 Pie. However, it’s not the stock version of Android 9.0 you may already know – as it’s always the case with Samsung phones, the software is tailored for the specifics of the new device and promises new functionality like 3-way multitasking and app continuity.
3. Camera and battery
You have probably seen dozens of devices this year with two or three cameras, but the six-camera setup of the Samsung Galaxy Fold is enough to surprise even the most seasoned smartphone fans. Here is a list of cameras you will find in the new Galaxy Fold:
- 10MP selfie camera on the cover display;
- 10MP + 8MP cameras on the primary display;
- 12MP + 12MP + 16MP rear camera setup.
Used together or separately, these six cameras will allow you to take stunning smartphone photos in any lighting and capture any moment you want to preserve in your memory.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold features two batteries that are located at both sides of the hinge. Together, the batteries have the capacity of 4,380mAh that should last you for the whole work day. The phone is charged quickly via USB-C and supports wireless charging through the Wireless Powershare.
2. Samsung Galaxy Fold price in Nigeria
The Samsung Galaxy Fold is one of the most expensive phones released this year, which is completely understandable if you take into account all the amazing technology that went into creating it. The phone retails for around $2,000 worldwide and costs up to ₦1,000,000 in Nigeria.
