– Two Screens

As well as a traditional 4.6-inch smartphone screen, the Galaxy Fold houses a second, larger display inside its body.

When unfolded and open, users can take advantage of a flexible 7.3-inch AMOLED Infinity Flex display.

The fold is powered by a new hinging mechanism engineered by the tech giant which uses multiple interlocking gears housed in a hidden enclosure.

– Hardware

The Fold contains features common in most flagship smartphones – including a fingerprint scanner in the side of the device.

It also includes six cameras – three on the rear, two on the inside and one on the front of the device.

The Fold also appears to have space for more battery power. It will contain a 4380mAh battery – one of the largest available in a smartphone.

– App Continuity

The larger screen of the Fold is able to display up to three apps at once for multi-tasking purposes.

The device also supports what Samsung calls App Continuity, which allows users to transition between the two screens seamlessly – as the Fold opens and closes, apps will automatically show up where you left off.

– Price and availability

The UK price has not yet been confirmed but the Galaxy Fold will go on sale in Europe – including the UK – on May 3, costing 2,000 euro.
