Recently, Samsung unveiled its long-awaited foldable smartphone - the Galaxy Fold. Question is, is this behemoth of a handset worth your money? Check below to find out.
It’s been over eight years since mobile tech giant Samsung first revealed plans to craft a foldable smartphone. Since then, the internet has been ablaze with rumours, but Samsung has offered fans only snippets of progress every year or so.
Now, though, we finally have the details of the Galaxy Fold.
Let’s dive straight in…

What is the Samsung Galaxy F like?
With its 7.6 inch screen, the Galaxy Fold opens like a book (albeit a very expensive one). Indeed, when closed, the Fold sports a 4.6 inch super AMOLED screen that opens up into a behemoth 7.3 inch dynamic AMOLED display.
A finger print scanner sits on the side of the phone, while Samsung’s clever new hinge runs down the middle. Some people will find the Fold’s thick borders a downer, but this doesn’t change the fact that the phone still looks slick when unfolded.
Specs and features
Here’s the some of the impressive specs and features the phone has to offer:
- Screen - with a 7.3 inch screen with tiny bezels, the Galaxy Fold's display is quite something to behold. Indeed, the phone’s brand-new Infinity Flex display is AMOLED and allows the phone to fold easily.
- Battery - Impressively, the Galaxy Fold sports not one, but two powerful batteries either side of the device providing up to an eye-watering 4,380mAh of power.
- Camera - the fold rocks a total of six cameras - a 10MP selfie camera on the cover (when the phone is closed), dual, 10MP and 8MP cameras at the front and three snappers at the back made up of a 12MP telephoto lens, a 12MP megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 16 megapixel ultra-wide angle lens.
- Storage - Samsung has stuffed an eye-watering 512GB worth of storage into the Galaxy along with 12GB of RAM. But, to be honest, we’re not really surprised. After all, a big phone deserves big storage behind it.
Unsurprisingly, the Galaxy isn’t cheap. In fact, with a price-tag of between £1,500 and £2,000, the price-tag of threshold for most new flagship handsets.
That said, the announcment of a new phone can also mean some cracking deals on older models, like the impressive Galaxy S9 and S9 Plus.
The phone was officially announced on February 20 - along with the Galaxy S10, S10 Plus and S10 Lite - with the phone reported to go on sale April 26.
