After months of teasing, Samsung today unveiled its first foldable smartphone. Aptly-named the Galaxy Fold, the handset will apparently be ready to launch by April 26, with a staggering starting price of $1,980.


The magic is obviously in the display. Samsung is using a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display mated with a hinge system that has multiple interlocking gears—all of this is hidden in the back of course to allow a seamless, flat design in the front. When fully open, the display’s resolution runs at 1536 x 2152. Folded, you get a smaller 4.6-inch display with a resolution of 840 x 1960.

Powering the massive display is a 7nm processor with 12GB of RAM. For storage, you get a speedy 512GB of Universal Flash Storage 3.0. The phone even has two batteries, which are separated by the fold, but Android recognizes them as a combined unit. Speaking of Android, the Fold is capable of running up to 3 apps at once.

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold will come in multiple colorways, in both LTE and 5G variations, and is slated to go on sale on April 26. As aforementioned, the starting price will be $1,980. Stay tuned for more details.
