Hands-on footage with the Samsung Galaxy Fold prompts concerns of creasing

Samsung's Galaxy Fold will be one expensive phone when it launches for $1,480

Samsung announced its folding smartphone - the Galaxy Fold - during its Unpacked event in February alongside the Galaxy S10 range, but the device has been kept out of the hands of both press and public, until now. It was initially supposed to release the device by the end of this month.

If that April 11date sounds familiar, it's because that's the same date that Verizon will launch its very first 5G Ultra Wideband service in the Chicago and Minneapolis markets. Samsung is yet to release the official fix cost for all countries but for residents of Australia, the official Recommended Retail Pricing (RRP) for the Galaxy S10 screen replacement is AUD $300 (~ United States dollars $213, UGX 789,000, NGN 77,000).

A brief hands-on video published online has confirmed our biggest fear about Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Fold and its foldable screen: The crease is really visible. In South Korea, for example, the device could cost more than $1,300 (at the existing currency rates), but full information will be provided by the parent company closer to launch.

Samsung Galaxy Fold uses plastic polymers, not glass, for its displays. Speaking of the display, it has a 6.4 inch Super AMOLED display. Everything is powered by a 4,000mAh battery. It offers decent specs, a pleasant design, and has four - yes four! - rear cameras, to capture every important moment. The setup will consist of 16-megapixel primary camera and an 8-megapixel secondary sensor.

The video also shows us a glimpse of what Android 9 Pie looks like on the Galaxy Fold, but it's far from comprehensive.

Samsung Galaxy Fold main display is nearly square-shaped, its size is 7,3 inches.

For taking pictures, it gets a 13MP f/1.9 main camera and a 5MP f/2.2 secondary shooter, while the V-shape notch houses an 8MP f/2.0 selfie camera.
