We’ve all known that the Samsung Galaxy Fold is going to change the way we use a smartphone. Being the world’s first folding phone, many people are very curious to see what the device is going to look and feel like as well as what daily life with it would be like. Well the device is finally on pre-order from October 6 to October 16 from major retailers (select stores) and Eros Digital Home brand stores in the UAE.
Samsung Galaxy Fold: First Look
“We are thrilled today to offer consumers a new form factor of mobile device that is our most innovative yet, allowing users to do things they couldn’t do with an ordinary smartphone. Transforming mobile experiences worldwide, Samsung has refined the Galaxy Fold to offer a powerful new way to multitask, watch videos, play games, and more – bringing to life new experiences and possibilities,” said Tarek Sabbagh, Head of IT and Mobile (IM) Division at Samsung Electronics Gulf.
Samsung Galaxy Fold: Features
The Galaxy Fold has a whole range of new features. Here’s what’s new:
- Do More: To ensure everything runs smoothly, even when running three apps simultaneously, Samsung equipped the Fold with a high-powered, next-generation AP chipset and 12GB of RAM with PC-like performance. The sophisticated dual battery system was specifically engineered to keep up with you. Galaxy Fold is also capable of charging itself and a second device simultaneously via Wireless PowerShare, while connected to a regular charger so you can leave your second charger at home.
- Ultimate Multimedia Experience: The Fold is designed for entertainment. Thanks to immersive visuals on the Dynamic AMOLED display and crisp, clear sound by AKG with the stereo speakers, your favorite movies and games come to life in rich sound and color.
- Samsung’s Most Versatile Camera Yet: No matter which way you hold—or fold—the device, a camera will be ready to capture the scene, so you never miss the moment. With six lenses—three in the back, two on the inside and one on the cover—the Galaxy Fold camera system has flexibility built in. Galaxy Fold introduces a new level of multitasking, allowing you to use other apps during a video call.
- Multi-Active Window: The possibilities are virtually endless with the folding smartphone – designed for the ultimate multitasker. You can open up to three active apps simultaneously on the main display so you can surf, text, work, watch and share without losing a beat.
- App Continuity: Make intuitive, seamless transitions between the cover and the main displays. As Galaxy Fold opens and closes, apps will automatically show up where you left off. When you’re ready to take a photo, make in-depth edits, or have a closer look at the feed, open the display for a big screen and fuller canvas.
- New Display Materials: The internal screen does not merely bend. It folds. Folding is a more intuitive motion, and a more difficult innovation to deliver. Samsung invented a new polymer layer and created a display around 50 percent thinner than the typical smartphone display. The new material makes the phone flexible and tough, built to last.
- New Hinging Mechanism: The device opens smoothly and naturally, like a book, and closes flat and compact with a satisfying click. To achieve this, Samsung engineered a sophisticated hinge with multiple interlocking gears. This system is housed in a hidden enclosure for a seamless and elegant look.
- New Design Elements: From the screen to the housing, to every element you can see and touch – Samsung left no stone unturned. The fingerprint scanner is found on the side where the thumb naturally rests, so the device unlocks easily. Two batteries and the components are evenly distributed so Galaxy Fold feels balanced in your hands.
