Samsung just unleashed arguably the most impressive array of new mobile devices and worlds-first mobile technologies in the short history of the smartphone. The latest lineup of Galaxy smartphones includes the S10, S10+, S10e, S10 5G and Fold.
The Galaxy Fold is the real stand-out: it’s the world's first seamless foldable phone. This 4.6-inch phone opens like a book to present a single 7.3-inch tablet display.
The new Galaxy 10 models are innovative as well, with new display technologies that reach almost edge to edge, new cameras and built-in wireless charging. Not only do the phones charge wirelessly, but they can also charge other devices.
Look and feel
Physically, Fold is twice as thick as a standard smartphone with a hidden hinge that Samsung says has been tested to withstand thousands of folds. From normal viewing distance there doesn't seem to be a discernible seam in the middle – it looks just like an ordinary (albeit bulky) smartphone. The Fold will come in four colors: Cosmic Black, Space Silver, Martian Green and Astro Blue, with customizable hinge coloring.
The Fold has even more cameras
Fold also is equipped with six cameras. You’ll find a triple-lens array on the back, similar to the Galaxy S10 and S10+ with a single front-facing selfie camera and an additional two cameras in tablet mode.
Fold’s fancy foldable screen means it skips the ultrasonic fingerprint sensor for a more conventional side fingerprint reader. It’s not as advanced as what you’ll find on most S10 models, but it’s tried and true.
Inside, Fold gets its smarts from a next-gen 7nm processor, its equipped with a massive 12GM of RAM to run the dual single-screen and tablet apps, with 512GB of onboard storage to keep your files. It's powered by twin batteries, one on each side that works in concert — but we don’t know the batteries' capacity or life. No matter what the size of the batteries, battery life will likely vary widely depending on how often you use the larger, power-sucking tablet screen.
