February 20, Samsung officially introduced a variety of new products. The presentation lasted 1.5 hours, and while this is the best thing that ever happened to me in 5 years of active work in the smartphone market. Still no presentation of any other company was not so interesting and ambitious. The main emphasis was made on the products, the Koreans decided to distract journalists with performances by popular performers. And you know why? Because it was something to show.
Usually start the presentation, Samsung and any other company with something not very important. Usually it’s a stupid figures on the growth of interest of consumers to company’s products or short retelling of the story. At this time, the Koreans decided not to wait and immediately introduced the main product of the evening, Galaxy Fold. Such a move would immediately grab the attention of the audience immediately warmed up the audience.
Samsung Galaxy Fold
We live in an amazing time when high technology is developing by leaps and bounds. Galaxy Fold at the moment is the most advanced and amazing product on the market. The device is equipped with two displays. The main has a diagonal of 7.3 inches, and the extra is 4.6. Both display is made by technology AMOLED. In addition, the company used a special mechanism that will allow even after thousands of folding continue to use the device without problems. To help you understand the whole picture, the company 200 times (about 5 years of use) and fold the main display on polyimide basis, and it’s damaged.
Galaxy Fold — not the cheapest smartphone on the market
The device is priced in 1980 dollars. Yes, it’s expensive, but let’s be honest, when you consider that the company offers us in return, so the cost is justified. In addition, it should be understood that the production before the end has not been established, and the Koreans are surely facing a lot of marriage.
An additional 4.6-inch display has a resolution of 840×1960 pixels, and the main delight of the owners a resolution of 1536×2152. While both displays have the same density of points 420 ppi, which even in the case of PenTile should be enough.
The presentation told about the gland. The smartphone is equipped with a next-generation processor with a 7-nm process technology, 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB internal memory type UFS 3.0. By the way, this is the first device on the market with similar memory. Technology UFS 3.0 will allow you to run and install apps instantly. Smart phones with UFS 3.0 speed is 2 times faster decisions on UFS 2.1.
Galaxy Fold got the battery 4380 mAh, even here, the company managed to approach the question outside the box — it divided the battery in two clusters. This type of thing before Apple did in the iPhone X to increase the capacity of the battery.
As S10 — we’ll talk later — Galaxy Fold supports wireless charging and Wireless Powershare technology, which allows you to charge other smartphones or Bluetooth headset, supporting them to Fold.
Galaxy Fold — fat? When folded, its thickness is 17 mm, and it is not very much when you consider form factor, but unfolded Fold has a thickness of only 6.9 mm. Another nice bonus is the stereo speakers from AKG that will transform the smartphone into a real multimedia center.
And, of course, six cameras — 3 major (16 MP f/2.2 wide angle 123 degrees, 12-Megapixel f/2.4 telephoto lens with optical stabilization, 12-Megapixel wide-angle with Dual Pixel technology, optical stabilization and variable aperture with f/1.5 to f/2.4) on the rear panel, two on the inner side (10-MP f/2.2 wide-angle with Dual Pixel technology and an 8 MP f/1.9 RGB module depth) and one external (10 MP f/2.2 with the Dual Pixel technology).
During a demonstration of the capabilities of Fold Samsung has shown what can the novelty in the issue of seamless use. So, when opening the device the user will see on the big screen all the applications, with whom he worked on additional. That is, the device retains the state of applications when moving from one display to the other. Managed to achieve thanks to the collaboration of Samsung and Google which was announced in November during the presentation of Galaxy Flex.
Samsung demonstrated the multi-window mode. So, on the same screen at the same time can be 3 applications that makes the Fold really easy. For example, you can easily simultaneously use WhatsApp, Chrome and YouTube, it’s cool that iron-then allows! A couple of years ago about this no one would have thought.
