Design and display
Meanwhile, here's recalling the Galaxy Fold
The Galaxy Fold features two displays: a 4.58-inch HD+ (840x1960 pixels) external screen and a foldable 7.3-inch QHD+ (1536x2152 pixels) Infinity Flex internal display.
It has a plastic outer casing and a side-mounted fingerprint scanner.
The now fixed model also comes with an integrated display protective layer, a reinforced hinge area, and reduced space between the hinge and screen to protect against dust/debris.
There are plenty of cameras for shutterbugs and selfie lovers
In the folded state, the Galaxy Fold offers a 10MP selfie camera which is housed above the external screen.
In the unfolded position, the notch in the top-right corner of the internal display houses a 10MP+8MP dual camera setup.
Lastly, on the rear, the device gets a triple-lens main camera with a 16MP ultra-wide sensor, a 12MP wide-angle sensor, and a 12MP telephoto sensor.
Under the hood
The Galaxy Fold is powered by the Snapdragon 855 chipset, paired with 12GB RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.0 storage.
It packs two batteries, one on each side of the hinge, for a combined capacity of 4,380mAh. It also supports 15W wired and wireless charging, as well as 9W reverse wireless-charging.
The device runs Android Pie-based One UI and packs AKG-tuned stereo speakers.
Galaxy Fold will offer a new experience for multitasking
To leverage both the screens, Samsung has introduced an App Continuity feature which automatically opens the app in the main internal display when you switch to the tablet mode. Further, in the tablet mode, you can run three apps simultaneously for an impressive multitasking experience.
