Samsung Galaxy Fold Features
The Galaxy Fold combines two screens in one device – one main flexible display of 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display and the other secondary screen of 4.6-inch, which can be folded to turn the phone into a compact device that can easily fit in your pocket. The company claims that it had to work on the Galaxy Fold from the ground up and create new manufacturing processes, components, and a lot more to turn the phone from a concept into reality.
To make sure the Galaxy Fold’s folding mechanism works as intended, the company has given the phone a robust backbone in the form of a sophisticated hinge, which uses interlocking gears. This hinge is cleverly hidden in the body of the phone and is not visible at all on the outside, helping the phone keep its elegant look.
It has new UX with several features such as App Continuity so apps will automatically show up where you leave off when you open and close the display and the Multi-Active Window lets you open up to three active apps simultaneously on the main display so you can surf, text, work, watch and share easily.
It uses new polymer layer that makes the display around 50% thinner than the typical smartphone display and the new material makes Galaxy Fold flexible and tough, built to last. It has a hinge with multiple interlocking gears housed in a hidden enclosure for a seamless closing and opening, and elegant look. It has fingerprint on the side where the thumb naturally rests, so the device unlocks easily and features engraved hinge with Samsung logo complete its elegant fit and finish.
