This gadget was shown to journalists and a limited number of users, which delighted these people. It is not yet possible to buy a folding device, since significant flaws have been found in its design. But it won't be long before these smartphones will start selling. However, most of the population will not be able to purchase them, since the price of a copy exceeds 130,000 rubles.
It remains to be hoped that the developers in the future will reduce prices for such devices. For now, let's tell you more about one of them.
Features and Design
The folding gadget Samsung Galaxy Fold is equipped with two displays. The display cover is made using Super AMOLED technology, has a diagonal dimension of 4.6-inches, HD + resolution with an aspect ratio of 21: 9.
The main 7.3-inch QXGA + Dynamic AMOLED display has an aspect ratio of 4.2: 3.
The processor of the device is manufactured using a 7-nm process, has 8 cores. The amount of RAM is 12 GB, ROM is 512 GB.
The smartphone is equipped with six cameras. In a folding form on the front panel there are two sensors: the main one with a resolution of 10 Mp and a depth sensor of 8 Mp. On the reverse side there is a triple module with 16 + 12 + 12 Mp lenses. There is also a selfie camera that has received a 10 megapixel.
The battery has a capacity of 4380 mAh, it supports wireless protocol and is equipped with fast charging technology.
The OS is Android 9 Pie.
If the device is folded, the user will see a phone with a 4.6 "display, when unfolded it measures 7.3". The screen is made of polymer, it is not as smooth as glass. When folded, it is easy to operate with one hand, and when using the expanded view, you will have to use the other hand. On one end of it there is a power and volume button.
Display & Software
When using the unfolded version, the device screen amazes with color variety and image quality. The only inconvenience arises when bright sunlight hits it. Then you have to slightly change the angle of inclination to find the best reading option.
Everything looks quite different when working with a small display. It is inconvenient, uninformative and small.
There is little good to say about software. It allows you to use the product as an e-book, watch movies, but communication, for example, in social networks is difficult.
Instagram views look ridiculous, most likely due to the lack of optimization of most resources for the capabilities of folding devices.
On the positive side, it should be noted the presence of a multitasking mode. Three programs can be used simultaneously.
Performance, cameras and autonomy
At the heart of the Samsung Galaxy Fold's hardware is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, which is aided by 12 GB of RAM and 512 internal memory.
This contributes to a high level of performance, as evidenced by the tests that the device was subjected to. In AnTuTu 3DBench, he scored 351,304 points, and in Geekbench 4 CPU 3,320 bonuses in single-core mode and 10,480 in multi-core.
A larger display was used in the tests, but even with this, the results were outstanding. We can safely say that the gadget turned out to be high-performance, capable of working with any applications and most games.
The quality of the pictures taken by the cameras is very good. They will master any daily tasks. This is especially true if there is sufficient lighting. In the dark, the pictures are worse, but not much. Live focus is available, but only works in good light.
The device allows you to record video in 4K mode. There are slight stutters when changing cameras, but overall everything is fine.
Galaxy Fold is equipped with a dual-cell battery with a capacity of 4380 mAh. Even if you use your smartphone diligently, then no more than 50% of the charge will be spent until the end of the day. At the same time, you can do anything: listen to music, watch movies, communicate on social networks.
It is really possible to use the USB-C port or wireless for charging. The full cycle will take about 2 hours. There is also a Wireless Powershare function that allows you to use the gadget to charge other devices.
