Galaxy Fold: Samsung's folding smartphone is real
After a lot of speculation about this phone in these months, it has finally become real. A top of the range called to revolutionize the Android market. The idea of this Galaxy Fold is to be able to have a device that has the ability to adapt to all kinds of situations. When folded it can be held in the palm of your hand and when it is opened, you can watch videos in the best way.
Samsung has defined this Galaxy Fold as a smartphone, tablet and camera in one device. A good description for this model. Multitasking is essential for the device, as shown in the presentation. Therefore, Samsung will allow three applications open at the same time when used in tablet mode. Which allows you to use the most important apps at the same time easily on the device.
For this to be possible, Samsung has worked with companies like Google and Microsoft in this process. This makes it much easier to have this multitasking on the phone. In addition, the user will be able to determine the size that he wants to use in each window. So you can make bigger ones depending on your need. You just need to stretch at the corners. The multi-active window has also been introduced, so that the content of the application is allowed to remain static even if we fold or unfold the device at all times. Very comfortable in this regard.
The Galaxy Fold arrives with a total of six cameras, as confirmed by Samsung in its presentation. Three cameras on the rear, two on the inside and one on the front. So you have cameras for every angle with your phone. Photography has gained special relevance in the device. So we can take photos from any angle with it without any problem. They combine all kinds of sensors, such as wide angle and telephoto. So we can take photos in all kinds of situations with this device. Without a doubt one of its strengths.
The battery was another important aspect of the phone. Since it is difficult to insert a battery in a model like the Galaxy Fold, which bends. Therefore, Samsung has opted for a double battery. The total capacity of it is 4.380 mAh. So that there is good autonomy for the device at all times. On the presence of fast charging in it we do not have details at the moment.
