Samsung unfolds the future

At the #Unpacked launch, Samsung delivered the world’s first foldable phone from a major brand. ARTHUR GOLDSTUCK tried it out.



The specs of the device were also a pleasant surprise: 12GB of RAM, which Samsung says makes it one of the most powerful smartphones on the market. It has a massive 512GB of storage space on board, and support for universal flash storage, meaning content can be accessed significantly faster than with regular handsets.

The foldable display and hinge are not the only engineering marvels on the device. It contains two batteries, one in each half of the unit, and combines the energy from both batteries into one power source.

The camera system comprises an absurd six lenses – the most so far on a regular smartphone is five – with three on the back and one on the front. The other two? On the inside, of course. The primary camera is an ultrawide 16MP lens, and the array includes wide angle and telephoto with 2X optical zoom. The cover camera is a 10MP baby, while the inside lenses offer 8MP and 10MP.

The main display is a Dynamic AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, measuring 536 x 2152 pixels, with a healthy 414 pixels per inch density. The cover display is a Super AMOLED screen.

The handset runs on the latest Qualcomm processor, the Snapdragon 855, and the batteries add up to a massive 4380 mAh.
