Anonymous, 20 Feb 2019The next NOTE 10 should have a fold version too !! It would be awesome with styluswould be dope but i would guess more realistic for the Note 11 since they wouldn't want to canibalise themselves and the tech is still way more expensive than the note price.
But we also saw the s10+ have the same price as a Note, so yeah idk
Price of IPhone Xs Max 512 GB in India is $2109, it is More than Samsung Innovative Fold Phone $1900+.
Refinements for the Galaxy Fold 2 -
Make the outside screen BIGGER. It looks narrow when folded which makes it one-handed friendly already but too much top and bottom bezels like we're getting transported back to 2007.
Try to make it thinner when folded. Probably not at Motorola RAZR-level yet but I do want it thinner when folded.
Lower the price. If they can get it to under $1000 in 2-3 years, I'm totally in.
For now, I'm just waiting for the PlayStation 5. The one product line that has never disappointed me in nearly 23 years. I have loved all the PlayStations I've ever owned.
Other than that, this first-gen Fold is pretty solid as is. The software is quite slick on it with no issues transitioning from fold to unfolded. This is a game changer, folks. The biggest game changer in form factor in a dozen years.
Sounds and looks amazing!
Lack of 3.5mm jack and sd slot however a major oversight in my view...
You can hear the awkward "whoa" in that Tech Insider and CNET video after the guy announced the price. A few awkward snickers moments later. You can also hear the tent in their pants starting to fold! LMAO! Starting at $1980, it matches the year I was born.
Not trying to justify price but it's not like Samsung gimped the specs. 512 GB, 12 GB RAM, 6 cameras. It's about $500 more than a 512 GB iPhone XS Plus which has a third of the RAM and cameras while the Fold has a bigger display than it unfolded while one-handed friendly like the XS when folded.
You can hate the price. I get that. I think $1,500 would seem more reasonable given this is new tech and having a hinge like that with two different batteries is very complicated engineering. But you can't blame Samsung for offering weak specs for this device.
It looks good and has great specs. Certainly looks way better than ZTE's concept. I wish Nintendo came up with a Switch or successor to a Switch with a foldable display. The og Switch is awkward to put in the pocket. Foldable displays would be great for gaming handhelds too.
R.I.P. iPads and all tablets
Samsung worked for a decade on foldable displays.
2021: "Introducing Apple's revolutionary iPhone that folds!"
it's definitely not 16:10 aspect ratio, if the resolution is 2152:1536... it's more like 14:10...
Samsung. You could have cut down the camera. and that puny extra screen, the extra effort to code 2 screen design. Use that cost and resource to get a jack + card slot.
Simply put it. Just make a foldable tablet.. call it Samsung Tab S Fold..
THERE IS NO NEED TO THINK so much and add so many useless components. In general use case, why tablet is less desirable when moving around is because its form factor.. hard to put in pocket or small bag. Having it folded will be the biggest appeal to end users.. But now the cost and gimmicky nature of multi screen.. complex camera arrangement make this only a funny experiment.
You could have earn some serious money from this. sigh..
I don't see a smartphone, what i see is a foldable tablet with an external screen.
Cannot tell how much the look of this phone reminds me of Nokia 9500 that i had ages ago:)

I'm getting Nintendo DS vibes on that design especially the grey color.
All its missing is a stylus.
