Samsung has released a video showing off the new Galaxy Fold and demonstrated some device usage as well. Features like App continuity, camera, and Samsung Dex are briefly shown. While the video does not go into too much detail, and is actually silent for the most part, it does give a glimpse of what to expect when the device is made available later this year.

The Galaxy Fold was made official at Samsung's recent Unpacked event but Samsung did not delve deep in actually demonstrating it. We are expecting quite a few foldable phones at MWC 2019 so it appears as if the South Korean-giant has released a YouTube video that shows the device up close and personal to emphasize some of its cool features in response to the competition.

The video starts off by showing some close-ups of the device and then goes on to show the wireless charging capabilities with the new Galaxy Watch Active while also showing no charging with what looks like the case for the new Galaxy Buds. The Galaxy Fold folds (duh...) easily into a compact form factor that snugly fits into a coat pocket.

The video does not demonstrate the Multi-Active Window feature but does show App Continuity that seamlessly transitions the Maps app between the cover and main displays. The camera app can be used directly from the cover display to control both the front and rear cameras. The only gripe is that the cover display's area appears somewhat limited due to the top and bottom bezels. Hopefully, we will see thinner bezels in upcoming iterations.

Samsung also showed off Samsung Dex running on the Galaxy Fold. Dex is easy to invoke via a simple swipe on the cover screen after connecting the phone to an external display via a USB Type-C cable.

The Galaxy Fold features a high-end 7 nm octa-core processor, 12 GB RAM, 512 GB UFS 3.0 storage, a triple rear camera, a dual front camera setup, and a 4,380 mAh battery. The phone is set to be available in Q2 2019 for starting from US$1,980.

Check out the video below (which is uncannily silent for some reason) and let us know what you think of the foldable future.

Though a cell and molecular biologist by training, I have been drawn towards computers from a very young age ever since I got my first PC in 1998. My passion for technology grew quite exponentially with the times, and it has been an incredible experience from being a much solicited source for tech advice and troubleshooting among family and friends to joining Notebookcheck in 2017 as a professional tech journalist. Now, I am a Lead Editor at Notebookcheck covering news and reviews encompassing a wide gamut of the technology landscape for Indian and global audiences. When I am not hunting for the next big story or taking complex measurements for reviews, you can find me unwinding to a nice read, listening to some soulful music, or trying out a new game.
