“The Samsung Galaxy Fold will have a large 7.3-inch display on the inside and a 4.6-inch external display”
Samsung is all set to unveil its next wave of flagship smartphones – Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10e, and Galaxy S10 Plus at its Unpacked event. The launch event is scheduled to be held later tonight in San Francisco and is also expected to witness the launch of brand’s foldable smartphone – Galaxy Fold. While we have seen numerous leaks and rumours in the past, the actual appearance of the handset has remained shrouded in mystery. Until now that is. A couple of renders by little known German site MobiFlip have appeared online, giving us a glimpse of the upcoming smartphone.
The first render of the smartphone gives us an idea of how the folding mechanism of the Galaxy Fold work. We can see that the upcoming smartphone will open up like a book with a large tablet-esque display in the centre. We can also see the smartphone featuring the USB Type-C port and loudspeaker grille on the bottom. The second render gives us a close-up look of the internal display. The interesting part is the angular cutout in the top right to accommodate the cameras. The cutout seems to be housing a dual camera module with space for sensors as well.
The folding style is, of course, not a surprise since it was shown in the prototype displayed at the Samsung Developer Conference in November. The company had also confirmed the internal display of Galaxy Fold will measure 7.3-inch, while the outer one will measure 4.6-inch. The performance of the smartphone is likely to be powered by Snapdragon 855 or Exynos 9820 chipset (depending on the market). The chipset is further speculated to be accompanied by 8GB of RAM and 128GB storage. The dual cameras on the back are expected to be a pair of 12-megapixel shooters. Lastly, the Galaxy Fold is speculated to be powered by a whopping 6,200mAh battery.
We wouldn’t have to wait too long to know accurate details of the upcoming smartphone as the launch is just a few hours away. Stay tuned to 91mobiles to get the latest update straight from San Francisco.
