Samsung has unveiled a foldable smartphone (Galaxy Fold) and a 5G handset (Galaxy S10 5G), BBC reports. Now, over to you Apple to copy/imitate and make better, and then call it iPhone fashionista. The Galaxy Fold goes for $1,980, making Samsung the super-fashionista for the moment.
Samsung has unveiled a foldable smartphone – the Galaxy Fold – alongside its first 5G handset and three further Galaxy S10 mobiles.
The Fold will go on sale in just over two months time, earlier than many expected.
The Galaxy S10 5G features the firm’s biggest-ever non-folding phone display and promises faster data speeds when networks become available.
The line-up also includes the introduction of a lower cost model.
Samsung had previously acknowledged that the cost of its S9 range had contributed to “lower-than-expected sales”.
Samsung said the Galaxy Fold would open up to create a 7.3in (18.5cm) tablet-like display and would be able to run up to three apps at once.
