SAMSUNG GHANA on Thursday unveiled the highly anticipated Galaxy Fold, a new foldable device at the Marriot Hotel in Accra.
Galaxy Fold features the world’s first 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display, which folds into a compact device with a cover display.
It offers a powerful new way to multitask, watch videos, play games, and more – bringing to life new experiences and possibilities, years in the making.
“Samsung is writing the next chapter in mobile innovation history by changing what’s possible in a smartphone. Galaxy Fold introduces a completely new category that unlocks new capabilities never seen before with our Infinity Flex Display,” said Dudu Mokholo, Chief Marketing Officer (CMO) of Samsung Central Africa.
“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 couldn’t do with an ordinary smartphone.
Users now have the best of both worlds – a compact device that unfolds to reveal Samsung’s largest-ever smartphone display. The handset brings together material, engineering and display innovations, developed over eight years following the debut of Samsung’s first flexible display prototype in 2011.
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.
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. Colours with unique finishing – Space Silver and Cosmos Black and the engraved hinge with Samsung logo complete its elegant fit and finish.
