A list of more information users can drool over until the phone’s set release date can be found on their website.
The biggest question users may have, with a foldable device, is how secure is the folding capability?

The gears are hidden at the rear of the device, allowing the device to transform from a phone to a tablet easily. The company states the device has the ability to fold up to 200,000 times, essentially meaning that it could last over 5 years of use if you were to told the device 100 times per day. An answer that will calm most users questioning the durability of such a unique device.
One of the other most notable bragging points for the device that was featured during the announcement, was it’s versatility and functionality. What exactly does that mean for an already ‘flexible’ device? Samsung states that the Galaxy Fold can run up to three applications simultaneously. It will utilize a continuity system that will adjust the apps as you move between tablet and phone modes. Applications such as YouTube, WhatsApp, and Microsoft Office have already all been optimized for the new display and modes.
