Samsung Galaxy Fold: Price and technical specifications
The Samsung Galaxy Fold is the fascinating result of two circumstances that only Samsung could have conjugated in this way. On the one hand, the declining popularity of premium smartphones, possibly motivated by the lack of innovation and the minimum incremental differences year by year, flagship to flagship of the same family.
On the other hand, the fact that Samsung is the undisputed king in the field of AMOLED panel production and having developed new technology shouted for a new device, something really new and impressive that could show off its Dynamic AMOLED Display in a spectacular way.
It is there where the Samsung Galaxy Fold enters not only to attract the attention of apathetic consumers keeping in the shade waiting for “the new great thing”, but also to show off the dazzling engineering that Samsung is capable of when it really tries to revolutionize The mobile phone market.

The best way to describe the design of the Samsung Galaxy Fold is to imagine it as an OLED book. In its “cover” we will find a Super AMOLED screen of 4.6 inches with resolution HD + aspect ratio 21: 9, that is, 1680 x 720 pixels.
If we focused only on this outer screen of the Galaxy Fold we could talk long and hard because we are talking nothing more or nothing less about an OLED image technology designed by Samsung that more and more manufacturers – especially from Asia – seek to incorporate into their own flagships.
But Galaxy Fold has something much better inside: instead of pages we find a Dynamic AMOLED display with 7.3 inches of QXGA resolution + 16:10 aspect ratio, that is, 2152 x 1536 pixels. Something truly impressive.
Both the outer and inner screen of the Samsung Galaxy Fold have native support for HDR10 + image. This is the best image technology released to date and allows you to relive multimedia file colors so that reality can also be observed on a display.
If anything we can criticize the incredible 7.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED interior screen of the Galaxy Fold is that its pixel density is quite low in the case of a premium cell phone: 441ppi.
Usually, a flasghip gives us a unique opportunity to customize it: its back.
These, usually cleared of screens that fill it completely leave room for chrome plating of different colors, on ceramics, acrylic glass, metal and other materials depending on the aesthetic criteria of their manufacturers.
In the case of the Samsung Galaxy Fold we are facing not only a half-thick counter that the whole team in fully deployed mode, but in the transition to its 180 degrees of deployment we will find a hinge only noticeable from behind.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold comes in four colors: “Cosmos Black” (“Black Cosmos”), “Space Silver” (“Space Silver”), “Astro Blue” (“Astro Blue”) and “Martian Green” (“Green Martian”).
But in all these cases we can also choose what color we want our hinge between three different options: black, silver or gold. This decision may be less for many, but it is a great gesture coming from a manufacturer of tastes as conservative as Samsung.
