Samsung has beaten everyone else on the market with its unbeatable Samsung Galaxy Fold phone that is going to make history as it has a unique type of folding display as the name suggests. It leaves the unibody design behind and comes with a folding display. The phone can be used as a tablet with its big screen. Also, it gets converted into a smartphone very well. Samsung joined google to come up with a nice and new User interface. The phone is powered by Qualcomm’s next-generation Snapdragon 8150 chipset.
Here is what you will get on unboxing the unique Samsung Galaxy Fold
Samsung Galaxy Fold has a 7.30-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1536 x 2152 pixels at a density of 326 PPI. It has a 4.60-inch touchscreen as its second display having a resolution of 720 x 1680p pixels at 399 PPI. It is powered by a 2.84GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset. It has 12GB of RAM and the smartphone runs Android Pie and powered by a 4380mAh non-removable battery.
The rear of the phone has a 16-megapixel primary camera with an aperture of f/F2/2 and a pixel size of 1.0-micron, the second camera of 12 megapixels with an f/F1.5/F2.4 aperture and a pixel size of 1.4-micron.
Similarly, the front camera is 10-megapixel and has an aperture of f/F2.2 aperture and a pixel size of 1.22-micron. The second 8 megapixel has an f/1.9 aperture and pixel size of 1.12-micron. Samsung Galaxy Fold measures 160.90 x 62.80 x 17.10mm and weighs 276 grams. It comes with an in-built storage of 512GB.
Samsung Galaxy Fold comes with a sophisticated 20-part, dual-axis hinge. You can open the folding of this smartphone just like a book and transform your phone to a tablet. It gives a smooth and natural motion.
The main display of the phone is plastic, not Gorilla glass, like the outer cover display. Samsung has placed a metal layer beneath the screen that fortifies the larger panel. When the phone is closed, it looks like a throwback phone. It is sufficiently tall and narrow as well as 0.66 inches thick.
This is double the Galaxy S10 and iPhone 11 Pro Max thickness. The phone fits well in a blazer pocket or purse, rather than the normal front pocket of your pants. It weighs 9.5 ounces and you might feel it like something quite heavier in your hands. However, it’s fun to watch a movie with this smartphone on your lap. Samsung separated the power button and fingerprint reader on the right edge of the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
The fingerprint sensor works as a Bixby button that can be used to program other apps as well. So, you can use facial recognition to unlock it because it’s pretty fast. Samsung Galaxy Fold is available in two colors including Space Silver and Cosmos Black. Samsung Galaxy doesn’t come with a headphone jack. The Samsung Galaxy Fold has Z Flip technology with rubber brushed inside so that dirt and dust is expelled.
The display screen of the Samsung Galaxy Fold is great for quick interactions and is 4.6 inches and is a great competitive advantage over many other smartphones on the market. You can use the front display for usual tasks like Gmail, reading the news and playing regular games.
Anything more than that will make you need the full display. The full 7.3 inch display is the oversized AMOLED canvas that is sharp, pleasing, and colorful. When you watch movies with a display this larger, it feels like tablet the crease might look visible while you’re using multiple apps.
The good news is that you won’t see it visible when watching movies, photos, and colorful stuff. Samsung Galaxy Fold display has 525 nits of brightness and it looks as good as in iPhone 11 Pro Max. The notch present in the top right corner might cut the videos off. You can hide the notch from settings but there will be a black bar on top of the screen.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold is as fast as Galaxy Note 10, but the iPhone 11 series still look faster. There is 12 GB RAM and 512 internal storage. The phone doesn’t allow storage expansion. The performance of the phone is like that of Galaxy S10 and Note 10’s performance.
The 12 GB RAM is greatly supportive while you’re using multiple apps on your phone at once. It has gained a great reputation just like top smartphones on the market. Samsung Galaxy Fold’s Qualcomm Snapgardon 865+ processor, 12GB of RAM, and 256GB have made it stand out among others.
It’s not been easier to judge the battery life of the Samsung Galaxy Fold. It is powered by a 4,380mAh battery and the battery lasts a day-and-a-half. Battery timing depends on how long are you using the phone keeping it wide open.
It comes with a good staying power even when it has a huge display. When you’re using LTE at 150 nits of screen brightness and continue web surfing on this phone, the battery lasts 10 hours and one minute.
Similarly, with a usage involving snapping photos, streaming music, watching video clips, and checking email, the phone keeps working for a whole day. The wireless charging feature also adds to the performance of this phone.
There are three shooters on the back of Samsung Galaxy Fold a 12-megapixel wide-angle camera, a 16-MP ultra-wide lens, and a 12-MPM telephoto lens.
At the front, there is a 10-MP camera for selfies and there will be a 10-MP main camera and 8-MP depth camera for portrait modes. Shooting with the folding closed seems sneaky and you just need to double press the power button for shooting.
Capturing pictures having the folding doesn’t make you feel embarrassed as there are thin bezels for a nice and sleek look. The photos have saturated colors and pictures are detailed. The wide-angle pictures have details and sharpness.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold price in Pakistan is PKR 323,400 and in USD, it’s $1,979.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold is a great innovative phone, but it falls a bit short from a practical perspective. The overall design is heavy and the front display is small. It is an expensive phone.
