Samsung expected to release the first ever 5G smartphone lineup, unveiling a shocking folding phone, and, needless to say, the 10th installment of the S Series.
The tech giant first gave leaks of its foldable phone back in November, and now the company is revealing more about what is new and unique only to the Galaxy Fold! Samsung is planning to launch Fold on April 26th, starting at 1980 USD, with LTE and 5G versions, and four different colors.
Samsung is using a new 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display that allows the phone itself to have a tablet-sized screen that can be folded to fit into a pocket. They have built a sturdy backbone to the device with a hinge system that has multiple interlocking gears.
Fold is expected to run in Android 9.0 (Pie), with Qualcomm SDM855 Snapdragon chipset, Octacore processor, and Adreno 640 graphics processing unit. At the rear of the device, there’s a triple-camera system with a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera, along with 12-megapixel wide angle camera. Conversely, the front/selfie camera is 10-megapixels.
One key feature of this technology is allowing the device to use three apps at once, utilizing an app continuity system, adjusting them the way you want when you fold it.
Samsung isn’t the only company producing a foldable smartphone, but it’s certainly one of the first to make it vastly available.
On another light, Samsung celebrates its 10th anniversary by bringing the Galaxy S10 family to us early this year! The S10 offers a 6.1-inch edge-to-edge screen display that stretches from top to bottom, achieving an impressive 93.1% screen to body display. Camera-wise, this phone boasts its triple rear cameras and intends to eliminate the notch – changing it into the hottest screen trend of 2019, the hole-punch selfie camera!
Furthermore, you won’t find a fingerprint pad on the back or anywhere visible on the phone anymore, because the new ultrasonic fingerprint sensor is integrated behind its glass screen. Samsung also introduces S10 with the revolutionary feature Wireless PowerShare, allowing other phones and smart wearables to charge on-the-go.
Aside from the regular 8GB of memory and 128GB of expandable storage, Samsung is planning to release a limited-edition Galaxy S10 Plus with 1TB of storage and 12GB of memory.
The whole Galaxy S10 family will be available in stores by March 8, starting from 900 USD. In the US, however, pre-ordering either the S10 or S10 Plus, Galaxy Buds will be included in the package as a promo!
