Samsung’s Galaxy line may have turned 10 on Wednesday, but Samsung kicked off its latest event talking about its foldable future, specifically the Galaxy Fold.
Available on April 26 for a starting price of an eye-popping $1,980, the newest Galaxy features a 4.6-inch display when closed and a 7.3-inch display when opened.
The Galaxy Fold will be offered in four color options: black, green, silver and blue. The device packs six cameras – three on the back, two on the inside and one on the front, as well as 512 GB of storage and 12 GB of RAM. The nearly $2,000 price is for the 4G LTE model, though Samsung says a 5G version will also be available.
A fingerprint sensor is on the side of the phone for unlocking the device, similar to the new Galaxy S10e. Two batteries, split across each side of the phone, powers the device.
First teased back in November, Samsung has worked with Google to allow for three apps to run simultaneously when in tablet mode. Samsung also demonstrated how apps that are viewed in the closed “phone mode,” such as Google Maps or Netflix, can be expanded into tablet apps as the phone is unfolded.
