“The Galaxy Fold is the company’s first foldable phone that unfolds into a 7.3-inch device”
Apart from posting official videos detailing the Galaxy Fold; which is the company’s first foldable phone announced at the Unpacked 2019 event last month, Samsung has been very careful on who has access to it so far. The fact that the brand dimmed the lights during the first presentation of the Galaxy Fold prototype back in November suggests how particular the company is. The handset will hit the stores in the month of April, but before that, a new Galaxy Fold video posted by ‘phoneoftime‘ YouTube channel leaves nothing to the imagination as it even shows off the display crease.
The video reportedly originates from Vietnam where Samsung has most of its production and R&D facilities. The Galaxy Fold presented in the video has the AT&T logo, meaning it could be a carrier model. The phone can be seen booting up and the display crease in the centre where it folds in two halves is also noticeable. It is also quite evident that the Korean giant has customised its software to go with the foldable mechanism as it can be seen shrinking down to the cover display mode immediately when folded and vice-versa.
The video also gives reassurance of Samsung’s claims about the rigidity of the hinge and we can also see just how big the display would be when it’s unfolded. The phone packs a 7.3-inch foldable Infinity flex display with a notch on the top-right corner. The screen folds inwards to reveal the 4.6-inch cover display that shares huge bezels and takes up about 3/4ths of the fascia. Under the hood, the phone will be powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset. The Galaxy Fold will be available starting April 26th in the US and other select markets.
