Im just happy to know that their again placing snapdragon chipset in stheir phones
nahhh, 21 Feb 2019how come it cost almost 2k bucks?Wait 3 months after release and you will be able to buy for 1000 or less... :-D
Zet, 21 Feb 2019No weight, no dimension data. Seems suspicious...No hands-on experience for invitees yet, thus no such data. It is just a huge "MESSAGE" to other foldable phone makers, and also APPLE.
Well done Samsung, something new, something innovative that will only get better going forward. Apple that used to be the innovator is now bringing up the rear...
Now that Samsung already made this kind of device, I would love to see HMD Nokia do a modern day interpretation of the E90 Communicator. Instead of two screen inside, I want to see a proper QWERTY keyboard.

Audiophiles and audio engineers can tell you that wireless headphone would need to sacrifice sound quality for battery longevity. There is no way wireless headphone would sound equal to wired one, and that's a fact!
Kingslayer, 21 Feb 2019The bummer is it doesn't have a headphone jack. Boo! It gets annoying. Wireless headphones is ... moreDefinitely agree. After all, wireless headphones have to sacrifice sound quality for battery longevity. You certainly don't face the latter with wired ones.
Right now Royole, Xiaomi could be like asking questions, "How come our foldable screen so dim, so many fingerprints and creases? Why Samsung's foldable screen has got nice matt finish and bright? And how they do it with such sharp bend and almost zero creases at center? How???"
Let's wait for Huawei's foldable phone this Sunday to see how competitive it is. Or they probably cancel it after they saw Samsung's Galaxy Fold. LOL.
The bummer is it doesn't have a headphone jack. Boo! It gets annoying. Wireless headphones is going to destroy battery life. The lack of a microSD is no biggie if it has half a terabyte.

3.5 mm jack only ancient tech to ancient primitive sheeple
This is the greatest mobile product Samsung has ever announced. Better than the first Note or S6 edge. This is really going to change everything. Love the Willy Wonka music in that promo trailer.
Apple iPhone Xs Max (512 GB) = $1,449
Samsung Galaxy Fold (512 GB) = $1,980
Storage: 512 GB = 512 GB
RAM: 4 GB < 12 GB
Cameras: 3 < 6
If you're used to Apple prices, this wouldn't be too shocking. They sell laptops for $3000.
For my money, it's not worth it. I'm really not into smartphones like I used to and was never into tablets at all. I'd rather pick up a $400-$500+ PlayStation 5 hopefully released by 2021-2022 and use that for 10 years. But if you compare it to the highway robbery Apple loves to do, the price isn't that bad.
Too bad no expandable storage but half a TB should be good for most people's needs for the next 5 to 10 years.
