Remember the flip phone? The kind that your grandparents now have? The phone that you were texting you had to press a number button three times just to get one letter? Even if you don’t recall those phones, Samsung does. Samsung liked the fold so much that on February 20th, they brought it back in their Galaxy Fold phone. And it’s not exactly what we were expecting.

Samsung finally unveiled its much awaited Galaxy Fold, a 7.3 inch, foldable phone. It sports Infinity Flex Display which allows the phone to fold into a smaller device with a cover display. “Today, Samsung is writing the next chapter in mobile innovation history by changing what’s possible in a smartphone. Galaxy Fold introduces a completely new category that unlocks new capabilities never seen before with our Infinity Flex Display,” said DJ Koh, President, and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.

Samsung advertises the Galaxy Fold as “A Smartphone. A Tablet. Folded into One” and with good reason. The Galaxy Fold is a compact device that unfolds to reveal Samsung’s largest smartphone screen.

The screen itself is made with hinges to allow the user to fold it to whatever position works best. The Galaxy Fold was designed with the multitasker in mind. You can open three separate apps simultaneously on this phone.

If you ever needed something to watch your back, the Galaxy Fold has you covered. Literally. Gone are the lone front and rear cameras on your phone. Today is the day where phones offer versatility and six different cameras.

With the Galaxy Fold, you can do even more in less time. With that being said, the suggested retail price starts at $1,980.00.
