Samsung Electronics unveiled the highly anticipated Galaxy Fold, a new foldable device creating a new mobile category. Galaxy Fold features the worlds first 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display, which folds into a compact device with a cover display. Galaxy Fold offers a powerful new way to multitask, watch videos, play games, and more bringing to life new experiences and possibilities years in the making.

Today, Samsung is writing the next chapter in mobile innovation history by changing whats possible in a smartphone. Galaxy Fold introduces a completely new category that unlocks new capabilities never seen before with our Infinity Flex Display. said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics. We created Galaxy Fold for those that want to experience what a premium foldable device can do, beyond the limitations of a traditional smartphone.

Galaxy Fold is in a category of its own. It delivers a new kind of mobile experience allowing users to do things they couldnt do with an ordinary smartphone. Users now have the best of both worlds; a compact device that unfolds to reveal Samsungs largest-ever smartphone display. Galaxy Fold brings together material, engineering and display innovations, developed over eight years following the debut of Samsungs first flexible display prototype in 2011. 

New Display Materials: The internal screen does not merely bend. It folds. Folding is a more intuitive motion, and a more difficult innovation to deliver. Samsung invented a new polymer layer and created a display around 50 percent thinner than the typical smartphone display. The new material makes Galaxy Fold flexible and tough, built to last. 

New Hinging Mechanism: Galaxy Fold opens smoothly and naturally, like a book, and closes flat and compact with a satisfying click. To achieve this, Samsung engineered a sophisticated hinge with multiple interlocking gears. This system is housed in a hidden enclosure for a seamless and elegant look.

New Design Elements: From the screen to the housing, to every element you can see and touch Samsung left no stone unturned. The fingerprint scanner is found on the side where the thumb naturally rests, so the device unlocks easily. Two batteries and the components are evenly distributed so Galaxy Fold feels balanced in your hands. Colors with unique finishingSpace Silver, Cosmos Black, Martian Green and Astro Blue1and the engraved hinge with Samsung logo complete its elegant fit and finish.

Galaxy Fold was designed with smartphone users in mind driven by bigger and better form factors that boost their experiences. Galaxy Fold changes to the screen you need, the moment you need it. Slip it out of your pocket for one-handed calls, texts, and more and open for endless multitasking and higher quality viewing on our largest mobile display for presentations, digital magazines, movies, and AR content.

The unique UX built just for Galaxy Fold, provides new ways to get the most out of your smartphone: 

Multi-Active Window: The possibilities are virtually endless with Galaxy Fold designed for the ultimate multitasker. You can open up to three active apps simultaneously on the main display so you can surf, text, work, watch and share without losing a beaeat.
 
App Continuity: Make intuitive, seamless transitions between the cover and the main displays. As Galaxy Fold opens and closes, apps will automatically show up where you leave off. When youre ready to take a photo, make in-depth edits, or have a closer look at the feed, open the display for a big screen and fuller canvas. 

Samsung worked with Google and the Android developer community to ensure that apps and services were available for the Galaxy Folds unique experience.

Galaxy Fold is more than a mobile device. Its a portal to an entire galaxy of connected devices and services that Samsung has developed over the years to make it easier for consumers do the things that they couldnt do before. Pair with Samsung DeX2  for even more productivity power with a PC-like experience.
