Samsung's Foldable Phone Is Here, And It'll Cost You $2,000

Samsung Galaxy Fold offers unique foldable design with as many as three screens. This includes 4.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED cover display, 7.3-inch QXGA+ Dynamic AMOLED screen, and hinge screen. Samsung’s new foldable design, however, is also quite expensive at $1,980. The device will go on sale in select markets starting April this year. 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 Samsung’s new wireless earbuds. There will be both an LTE and 5G version of the Galaxy Fold.

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 it’s 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 there’s also a triple-camera system that will be used for both tablet and phone modes. There’s 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.
