    Celebrating the first decade of its Galaxy 'S' series, Samsung has unveiled the first-of-its-kind foldable smartphone -- Galaxy Fold -- for $2,000 as a smartphone and a tablet folded into one device.

    Celebrating the first decade of its Galaxy 'S' series, Samsung has unveiled the first-of-its-kind foldable smartphone -- Galaxy Fold -- for $2,000 as a smartphone and a tablet folded into one device.
    The smartphone, which will be available on April 26, comes with the world's first 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display, which folds into a compact device with a cover display that is capable of opening up to three active apps simultaneously on the main display.
    The internal screen does not merely bend. It folds smoothly and naturally, like a book.
    "To achieve this, we engineered a sophisticated hinge with multiple interlocking gears -- a system which is housed in a hidden enclosure for an elegant look, " the company wrote in a blog post on Thursday.
    As Galaxy Fold opens and closes, apps will automatically show up where you leave off.
    For PC-like powerful performance, running Android 9.0 Pie, Galaxy Fold comes equipped with a high-powered, next-generation application processor (AP) chipset and 12GB of RAM.
    With the dual battery, the device is capable of charging itself and a second device simultaneously via Wireless PowerShare, while connected to a regular charger.
    The smartphone features six lenses - three in the back, two on the inside and one on the cover.
