I first saw the Galaxy Fold during the launch of Galaxy S10 series in February 2019. Perhaps, just like most of the people who witnessed its grand unveiling, I was astounded and impressed with the number of innovations Samsung introduced in a device that most of us never thought would be announced at that time.
The introduction of Galaxy Fold almost overshadowed and made the Galaxy S10+ inferior. Thankfully, the device was nowhere in sight at the demo area, but the anticipation grew stronger especially to those who were eager to embrace a new innovation.
2 months later, the infamous “Foldgate” happened. Samsung shipped a couple of units to content creators across the world and… well… some of you already know the rest of the story.
In September 2019, Samsung relaunched the Galaxy Fold with improved design and construction.
After realizing that the Galaxy Fold wasn’t consumer-ready, the Korean tech giant decided to analyze and fix the issues that were surrounding it.
Overall, the design of the Galaxy Fold remains unchanged with a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display and a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED panel on the outside.
The new Galaxy Fold now has rubbery protection hidden in the foldable part to prevent dust and other particles from getting into the mechanism. Along with this, the layer on top that protects the digitizer from scratches now goes beyond the edges to prevent accidental peeling.
It retains the six cameras as well as the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 partnered with 12GB RAM and 512GB of internal storage.
