Samsung Unfolds the Future With First Foldable Phone

The world’s first Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex Display.

Samsung Electronics has unveiled the highly anticipated Galaxy Fold, a new foldable device creating a new mobile category. Galaxy Fold features the world’s first 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display, which folds into a compact device with a cover display.

Galaxy Fold offers a powerful new way to multitask, watch videos, play games, and more – bringing to life new experiences and possibilities years in the making.

DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics said: “Today, Samsung is writing the next chapter in mobile innovation history by changing what’s possible in a smartphone.

“Galaxy Fold introduces a completely new category that unlocks new capabilities never seen before with our Infinity Flex Display.

“We created Galaxy Fold for those that want to experience what a premium foldable device can do, beyond the limitations of a traditional smartphone.”

Galaxy Fold is in a category of its own. It delivers a new kind of mobile experience allowing users to do things they couldn’t do with an ordinary smartphone.

Users now have the best of both worlds; a compact device that unfolds to reveal Samsung’s largest-ever smartphone display.

Galaxy Fold brings together material, engineering and display innovations, developed over eight years following the debut of Samsung’s first flexible display prototype in 2011.

The internal screen does not merely bend. It folds.

Folding is a more intuitive motion, and a more difficult innovation to deliver.

Samsung invented a new polymer layer and created a display around 50 percent thinner than the typical smartphone display.

The new material makes Galaxy Fold flexible and tough, built to last.

Galaxy Fold opens smoothly and naturally, like a book, and closes flat and compact with a satisfying click.

To achieve this, Samsung engineered a sophisticated hinge with multiple interlocking gears.

This system is housed in a hidden enclosure for a seamless and elegant look.

From the screen to the housing, to every element you can see and touch – Samsung left no stone unturned.

The fingerprint scanner is found on the side where the thumb naturally rests, so the device unlocks easily.

Two batteries and the components are evenly distributed, so Galaxy Fold feels balanced in your hands.

Colours with unique finishing—Space Silver, Cosmos Black, Martian Green and Astro Blue—and the engraved hinge with Samsung logo complete its elegant fit and finish.
