Samsung announces folding phone with 5G - at nearly $2,000
Updated : February 21, 2019 06:55 AM IST
The Galaxy Fold will go on sale on April 26 and take advantage of new and faster 5G mobile networks. The device looks similar to a conventional smartphone but then opens like a book to reveal a display the size of a small tablet at 7.3 inches (18.5 cm).
The device "answers sceptics who said that everything that could be done has been done," DJ Koh, chief executive of Samsung Electronics, said at an event in San Francisco. "We are here to prove them wrong."
"The prices of the flagship models have been a little aggressive in India," Navneet Kumar Singh, a Samsung enthusiast from India who travelled to San Francisco to watch the launch said, "But in the end, if you invest the money you're getting a different experience."
