Samsung's foldable phone continues to be a hot topic in the technology space. And as we inch closer to its expected showcasing at the Mobile World Congress 2019 in February, a new report has tipped off the specifications of the phone. As per the report, Samsung's foldable phone will come with 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage and pack a 6,000mAh battery. Here's more.
The report claims that the handset will pack a massive 6,000mAh battery, possibly stacked in two parts.
