At MWC this year, Samsung revealed the Samsung Galaxy Fold at their annual Unpacked Event. The Samsung Galaxy Fold marks the company’s first venture into the foldable phones arena. While there was not a lot revealed in that unpacked event, on Monday we got a much better look at what the Samsung Galaxy Fold has to offer as an actual phone. While it is predominately a silent video, it is 4 minutes worth of Galaxy fold goodness, where we see the phone at different angles and we get a better look at the device’s functionality. You’ll be able to see the phone click, pop and swoosh its way through apps in its various states.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold makes good use of its 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Screen, moving through applications like Google Maps, Instagram and the camera. In the video, you can also see what the 4.6-inch HD+ screen is like when the device is in its folded state or its “phone” mode. It’s effectively a less beautiful Samsung Galaxy S10 in this state, which basically has a bezel-less display! Having chunky bezels all around the main frame of the phone is a questionable choice, but with limited knowledge as to why these bezels exist, we’ll have to trust that there is some method to the madness.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold is due to release on April 26th at the jaw-dropping price of €1,700. While we have no indicators of which Irish carrier will be getting the Galaxy Fold, you can trust that when it’s announced you’ll find it here first on IrishTech. We’re expecting that it will launch through some carriers here, but which remains to be seen. Failing that, we’re sure that those who really want to shell out €1,700 for a smartphone will be able to afford a means to import it.
