Celebrating the first decade of its Galaxy ‘S’ series, Samsung has unveiled the first-of-its-kind foldable smartphone — Galaxy Fold — for $2,000 as a smartphone and a tablet folded into one device.

The smartphone, which will be available on April 26, comes with the world’s first 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display, which folds into a compact device with a cover display that is capable of opening up to three active apps simultaneously on the main display.

The internal screen does not merely bend. It folds smoothly and naturally, like a book.

“To achieve this, we engineered a sophisticated hinge with multiple interlocking gears — a system which is housed in a hidden enclosure for an elegant look, ” the company wrote in a blog post on Thursday.

As Galaxy Fold opens and closes, apps will automatically show up where you leave off.

For PC-like powerful performance, running Android 9.0 Pie, Galaxy Fold comes equipped with a high-powered, next-generation application processor (AP) chipset and 12GB of RAM.
