Display

The smartphone and tablet which folds into one, gives the user the best of both worlds in one compact package with Samsung’s largest ever display.  50 per cent thinner than the typical smartphone, the internal screen folds due to a newly invented polymer layer which is flexible yet built to last, while  ‘App Continuity’ allows for seamless transitions between screens.

Hinge Mechanism

The Samsung Galaxy Fold opens like a book and closes flat thanks to its sophisticated hinge mechanism with multiple interlocking gears for a sleek, smooth operation every time.
