Samsung, being the biggest name in the smartphone market, is part of Foldable Smartphones’ race with the alleged Galaxy X, Galaxy F or Galaxy Fold. Although, the South Korean tech giant has kept many things vague and only showed a prototype on stage, and even then it wasn’t up close. However, new updates have brought more features into spotlight.
Rumoured Specs of Galaxy Fold
Samsung has already demoed a smartphone with its Infinity Flex display at a developer conference last month. However, the phone was a prototype and was partially covered during the demonstration. Also, the lights were dimmed down, not offering a clear look at the phone.
As reported in media, the Galaxy Fold will be equipped with two screens – Cover Display and Main Display. The former one to feature a 4.6-inch screen with a regular resolution of 840 x 1960 pixels while the latter one offers massive 7.3-inch flexible OLED display features a tablet-like experience with 1536 x 2152 pixels screen resolution.
Rumors are also there claiming that Samsung’s maiden foldable smartphone will be powered either by the Exynos 9820 or Qualcomm’s newly announced Snapdragon 855 SoC. It may also have an 8GB RAM and 128GB of native storage with no news about the expandable memory option.
Meanwhile, LetsGoDigital has revealed in their latest article that the Galaxy Fold will be equipped with a power source packed by two separate cells totalling a massive 6,000 mAh battery backup. Probably, the split cell battery is meant to facilitate the foldable design of the phone that might not have enough space for a single large battery unit.
Expected Pricing and Launch Date
If media reports are proven true, the Galaxy Fold may debut its commercial journey from early next year globally; most probably in March 2019. To access the phone’s demand, the Korean tech leader is reportedly planning to produce one million units of its foldable smartphone.
Although, not officially announced but the Galaxy Fold is expected to cost around $2,500 (~PKR 350,000); well above Apple’s iPhone XS Max.
