Among the most exciting mobile phone releases of 2019 is the all new Samsung Galaxy Fold. It is possibly the very first mainstream smartphone that features a fully interactive foldable display. While this technology does have the power to set an industry trend, it does come with its share of downsides. The first is cost, and the price of the Samsung foldable phone in India is rumoured to hover around the Rs. 1 lakh mark. Besides the high Samsung Galaxy Fold price, there is also the question of operational wear and tear. In fact, the official Samsung foldable phone release was in April 2019, but it was recalled before reaching any customers. However, an official announcement reveals that the Samsung foldable phone launch is scheduled to happen in September and that the previous problems have now been resolved. To know more about this exceptional smartphone, read on.
With the previous design, the phone’s display was improperly designed to look as if the top protective layer was a screen protector. Reviewers complained that this was likely to cause confusion among users, which could lead to them damaging the screen. To remedy this, Samsung has extended the top layer right up till the bezel, so that it looks seamless.
Another issue that the Galaxy Fold faced was the unsealed parts around the hinge. This caused debris to collect under the screen and in some cases, even caused the screen to stop working altogether. In a statement, Samsung mentioned that it has dealt with this issue by sealing up the vulnerable areas and assures that the phone will not encounter the same hindrance again in its newer version.
Lastly, the strength of the folding hinge was questioned and Samsung demonstrated that the brand’s innovative device can withstand over 2 lakh folds. However, this raised concerns as the testing was done in a controlled environment and may not stand trial in a real life experience. Putting these concerns to bed, the brand has given the hinges a coating of metal layers and additional protection caps. These have been added to the top and bottom area of the hinge to give it a sturdy base.
Among the many Samsung foldable phone features, the design is an element that stands out the most. It has a 20-part dual-axis hinge using which you can unfold the screen up to 180 degrees. The hinge is designed to withstand up to 2 lakh folds and unfolds, and has an intelligent finish that makes it vanish into the body when fully opened. The Samsung foldable phone thickness is about 17mm, making it about 9mm thicker than most smartphones available in the market.
The Samsung foldable phone display is a 7.3-inch dynamic AMOLED panel that has a pixel density of 362ppi. The multi-touch capacitive touchscreen outputs at an aspect ratio of 16:10 and resolutions up to 2152x1536 pixels. When folded, you can interface with the 4.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED display on the front, which allows you interface with it as a normal, albeit smaller, smartphone.

However, this smaller size is a lot more comfortable to use with just one hand and so, it is a value trade-up for a few inches of screen. This exterior display can be mainly used as a notification HUD and playback control without experiencing any compromises in visual quality. Considering the Galaxy Fold price in India, this device feels reminiscent of the earlier Samsung technology and will definitely be a pleasure to interact with.
You can use this smartphone in two modes, phone and tablet. The phone mode is when it is folded and you’re working with the smaller exterior display. You can still enjoy full functionality of all your apps, but the only trade up is screen size. When switched over to tablet mode, any apps you had open in phone mode will seamlessly accommodate to the new screen. This is done quickly and instantaneously thanks to the snappy Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Octa-Core processor and nimble 12GB RAM module. Among the many Samsung foldable phone specs, the processor and RAM are best in class, which ensure your smartphone usage and experience is as premium as can be.
Of all the Samsung Fold specs, the camera and the battery are the most important to for any user. In terms of camera technology, the Galaxy Fold does not disappoint as it will have triple rear cameras and dual front cameras.
