Now, we’re excited to release thispioneering mobile technology, and allow consumers to experience it for themselves,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics. “Consumers have responded positively to larger screens, and the Galaxy Fold’s revolutionary form factor offers a bigger, more immersive screen without sacrificing portability. This is what we call innovation of new mobile experience in action.”
First-of-its-Kind User Experience
The Galaxy Fold combines users’ favorite smartphone and tablet features to deliver a new kind of mobile device anda first-of-its-kind user experience – from a new form factor and materials to its unique foldable UX, versatile camera and premium performance. Samsung worked alongside partners to create an entirely new UX that will change the way we use our mobile devices and takes full advantage of the foldable design with its cover and main displays. As a result, the device opens up new possibilities for users.
The Galaxy Fold transforms how you capture, share, and edit mobile content.
