In the end, the Korean corporation ultimately managed to cope with the nightmarish problems plaguing these innovative devices and intends to start selling them. We know the price and markets on which this smartphone will appear first.
Samsung was to release Folda in the spring, but shortly after the release of devices to the journalists of technology services, it withheld the disclosure of the final date of sale. This was related to numerous defects discovered in the devices during their use. Journalists reported that the screens cracked in half after bending several times.
Although the Koreans have been intensively testing devices for many months, and videos of these murderous treatments presented in the global network, apparently robots are much more delicate in handling such inventions from people. Samsung could not be passive in the face of the appearance of these defects and decided to do something about it. As a result, Galaxy Fold will only reach stores by half a year.
Samsung wrote on his blog that he made design changes in the device. “The top protective layer of the Infinity Flex Display has been extended beyond the frame, which means that it is now an integral part of the display structure and can not be removed. The upper and lower part of the hinge has been reinforced with new protective caps. Additional metal layers under the Infinity Flex display are also included to enhance display protection. The space between the hinge and the body of the device has also been reduced. “
It may seem that Samsung is a pioneer in the subject of folding smartphones with flexible screens. The competition, however, is not sleeping and is not one step behind Samsung. Simply the Chinese, in the form of the Huawei company, are characterized by great patience and prefer to first check the reaction of people to such inventions, and then proceed to attack. The war should break out already in September. Then Galaxy Fold will go to selected stores.
Samsung announced that at the beginning you will be able to buy it on the domestic market, and later in America and Europe. Samartfon in spread mode, i.e. tablet, has a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Dynamic AMOLED screen (4.2: 3) with a resolution of 2152 × 1536 pixels. Meanwhile, after folding, the device offers a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED screen (21: 9) with a resolution of 1600 × 900 pixels.
On the Galaxy Fold board will be a 7-nanometer processor and 12 GB RAM. According to Samsung, it will be the most powerful smartphone on the market, even from the latest Galaxy S10 +. As for the data space, there will be 512 GB of Universal Flash memory available, which provides ultra-fast read and write of files.
The Korean company also ensures that when using an innovative smartphone of the future, there will be no battery. In the device there are as many as two, in each wing, and with a total capacity of up to 4380 mAh. Samsung’s pride is also cameras. In the back there will be three cameras: 1 ultra wide angle 16MP (F2,2), 12MP wide-angle Dual Pixel (OIS, F1,5 / F2,4) and 12MP telephoto lens (PDAF, OIS, F2,4) with double optical zoom. In the interior, we find two 10 MP (F2,2) and 8MP RGB (F1,9) cameras. On the front there will be a single 10MP camera (F2,2).
When it comes to price, nothing has changed in this matter. The innovative device will be available in the basic version in the shadows of 1980 US dollars (about 7500 PLN). Fold will appear in at least two versions, with and without 5G modem.
