On February 21, Samsung opened a new race on the phone market when it announced Galaxy Fold – a unique folding screen smartphone.

And when opened, the user will have a wide screen 7.3 inch QXGA + 4.2: 3 ratio. A screen that is quite square and seamlessly brings a really big display space like a tablet. Samsung said it has collaborated with Google to optimize multitasking capabilities on Galaxy Fold to take advantage of the big screen, allowing users to open applications at the same time. Applications like Youtube will also be updated to support the best folding screen.


Not only possessing a wide screen can be impressively folded, Galaxy Fold also equipped with many cameras. In addition to the camera on the outside, the upper side of the screen left, there is a dual selfie camera. And finally there is a 3-camera system on the back. Unfortunately all the specifications of these cameras have not been yet been revealed
