The body of Samsung Galaxy Fold has received a non-standard form factor: folder (flip phone) with a flexible touch screen. This type of case began to be popular in 2019-2020, this became possible primarily due to the technologies, and, of course, marketers had to justify the inflated expectations of customers for new products. And Samsung Galaxy Fold has such features: additional small screen with a diagonal 4.6" Super AMOLED, folding screen (so that the phone body can be folded), cut-out notch above the screen (so that a selfie camera, speakers and additional sensors are placed there).

Android version and market relevance

The long-awaited announcement of a new smartphone from the manufacturer Samsung, which took place in February 2019 (in our catalog you can see all smarphones of 2019). This is a new model Samsung Galaxy Fold — smartphone works on Android 9 Pie, which can be updated to version 10.

Samsung Galaxy Fold does not support two SIM cards, but if it′s important and necessary for you, we advise you to look in the directory smartphones with 2 sim cards. On this page, you can definitely pick up a good current model, which will suit you perfectly. And let’s look at an important function — the availability of 5G networks support in a smartphone. Samsung Galaxy Fold has not received support for 5G networks, but this does not mean that this model is bad and does not deserve your attention. Look at all the features of this smartphone and its price. It is possible that you will like it very much and will be suitable for purchase today. And after one or two years, when you choose the next new smartphone, then on the page of all 5G smartphones in our catalog you will see hundreds of smartphones from many manufacturers at different prices.

Screen, body and battery

Please note that the body of the smartphone has a flip-shape form. Yes, we were not mistaken. Samsung Galaxy Fold is really a flip smartphone on Android. This feature of the body affects many other parameters of this model. Here is a list of the most important:

  • The diagonal of the main screen in the open position can be doubled, because the screen is flexible (see the catalog for all smartphones with flexible screens);
  • The smartphone has an additional 4.6-inch Super AMOLED-screen, which you need when the flip body is folded (all smartphones with two screens are also collected in our catalog);
  • Higher battery capacity because there is more physical space for the battery;
  • The weight of the device has become one and a half or even two times more than that of similar models;
  • The main camera can be used as a selfie camera, so you get better quality portrait photos;
  • And, of course, the high price of this model, because the cost of manufacturing technology for smartphones with flexible screens is still very high.;
  • But, the undoubted plus of such a flip smartphone is the uniqueness and interest of the friends, colleagues and partners around you, perhaps even some special status.

We advise you to immediately watch the video reviews and photos from real life of this smartphone. All promotional materials from the manufacturer will only show the pros of this flip smartphone. But with its high price, you need to find out both the pros and cons of this model before buying. Now let’s move on to describing other important characteristics in more detail.

The case Samsung Galaxy Fold has got interesting features: very thin side frames, cutout above the screen for a selfie camera and sensors.

Flexible screen Samsung Galaxy Fold is made using the Dynamic AMOLED technology, has a diagonal 7.3 inches. Such a very large main touch screen certainly affects the dimensions of the case, which has a thickness of 15.5 mm. Also inside the case is a battery with a capacity of 4 380 mAh.

Main camera and selfie camera

The main camera has several modules (triple camera smartphones): 12 MP Wide + 12 MP Telephoto + 16 MP UltraWide and, as usual, it is located on the back of the smartphone. When a smartphone camera has multiple lenses, it allows zooming with high image quality. You can also take photos with the Bokeh effect. This is an effect where the background is blurred and the subject in the foreground stands out very nicely. It’s better to see it once than hear about it a hundred times, so look at examples of photos from this smartphone. The frontcamera at Samsung Galaxy Fold has several modules (smartphones with dual selfie cameras): 10 MP Wide + 8 MP Wide. And this, of course, is not much. There are smartphones with a good selfie-camera.

Processor and Internal Memory

Brilliant multi-core processor Snapdragon 855 installed in Samsung Galaxy Fold. 12 GB of RAM will help make the interface work smoother. There is also built-in memory in the smartphone, which stores photos, videos, music and all your other data. The amount of this built-in memory is 512 GB. Memory cards in this model, unfortunately, are not supported.

Price for Samsung Galaxy Fold: buy or not to buy?

The smartphone Samsung Galaxy Fold got into our price segment “Flagships smartphones from $500” and began to be sold in September 2019 at a price of $1800. Evaluation of the characteristics, probably, you have already folded, and if not, here is our result. Samsung Galaxy Fold is a very smart smartphone with a huge screen and a cool main camera, and the front camera did not turn out super cool. And to all this we add that the battery is of high capacity.

Is it worth buying now this model of the smartphone, we are talking about our status “Droid-or-Junk”. Of course, at the beginning of sales, almost every smartphone becomes a Droid, and we advise buying such models. But over time, the situation is changing, no one updates the Android version in the smartphone, and in six months or a year this smartphone can already become a Junk. In this case, we advise you to go to the DROID smartphones page in our catalog, where we always show the most current models on sale for today. There are variants from different price segments, so you will have plenty to choose from.
