Dubbed Galaxy Fold, the foldable device features a 7.3-inch diagonal Infinity Flex Display which folds into a compact device with a cover display. Arguably, the unfolded phone about the size of a small tablet, will bring out more visibility to rich visual content such as videos, games and photos.
The Galaxy Fold brings together material, engineering and display innovations, developed over eight years following the debut of Samsung’s first flexible display prototype in 2011, claims the company. For its internal screen, Samsung says it invented a new polymer layer and created a display around 50 percent thinner than the typical smartphone display, assorted to a novel hinging mechanism so the Galaxy Fold opens smoothly and naturally, like a book.
The larger display accommodates multi-active windows, letting users open up to three active apps simultaneously on the main display. Apps seamlessly transition between the cover and the main displays, automatically. On the camera side, the new phone boasts six lenses, three in the back, two on the inside and one on the cover. The bulkier smartphone is expected to ship in the second quarter of 2019.
