A Closer Look at the Samsung Galaxy Fold

Measuring in at 62.9 x 160.9 x 17mm, the large 7.3-inch QHD+ Dynamic AMOLED display folds eloquently in half, like a laptop, with a study folding mechanism that runs down the middle allowing users to easily carry the device in their pocket. A 20-part, dual axis hinge prevents the phone from bending in the wrong direction past 180 degrees and will be able to withstand over 200,000 folds and unfolds. Going through over 1,000 different prototypes, this final design took 10-years in the making.

Located on the right of the smartphone is the fingerprint sensor which also helps to launch Samsung’s smart assistant. Above, the power lock and volume keys can be found while the bottom of the phone contains a USB-C port on one half and a speaker on the other half. Following in suit with the new trend, there is no headphone jack.

The phone also boasts two speakers providing stereo sound tuned by Dolby Atmos-supported AKG and six cameras. Three of the cameras are located on the rear with a 12MP main sensor (f/1.5-f/2.4, OIS) joined by a 12MP telephoto lens (f/2.4, OIS) and a 16MP ultra-wide angle lens (f/2.2), while a 10MP (f/2.2) is located above the display. To more are revealed when the phone is opened up at the top right of the display.
