Samsung Galaxy Fold infographic clears out all queries about its design

The Samsung Galaxy Fold has created a lot of buzz in the world of Android. The device is too costly for everyone to afford it, but that certainly won’t stop us from thinking about its functionality and design.

Luckily, Samsung has finally decided to make things a bit easier for all of us by providing us with an infographic which describes the device’s front, rear, and the folded region.

The device is going to be released come April 26. So far, we know almost all the official specifications of the device, but that is certainly not it. There is a myriad of doubts amongst our minds which Mishaal Rahman (an XDA member) has tried to clear out via a tweet.


Let’s have a look at all the doubts he has tried to clear out.

1. Does the Galaxy Fold have a crease when unfolded?

Sadly, yes. As per Rahman, the crease is there. Thankfully enough, it is barely noticeable and becomes almost negligible when the screen brightness is more than 70%.

Q: Does it fold completely or is it like a binder?

A: More like a binder, it leaves a small gap.

2. Does the screen bend/fold outwards? How sturdy is the hinge?

As per him, the screen does not bend outwards and the hinge is sturdy enough to keep the Galaxy Fold from bending that way.

Q: Does the hinge bend outward? (Not intended behaviour, but want to know about quality)

A: Doesn’t bend outwards.

3. Can I use the Galaxy Fold as a small laptop at 90 degrees?

That seems unlikely. As per Rahman, the Galaxy Fold can be bent at a right angle, but that turns off the screen, meaning that one won’t be able to use the device in that orientation.

Q: Can the Fold remain open at a right angle?

A: Fold is weird like you could make it stay open at that angle but the screen would be off and if you do manage to keep it open its more of a balancing.

4. Does the Galaxy Fold allow for separate home screen setups?

Yes, it does.

Q: Does it allow for separate home screen setups?

A: It does allow separate home screens. Actually, that messed me up the first time. I set my home screen to a seal and only the inner screen changed. Later I figured that I have to change the small screen wallpaper separately.

Furthermore, he has tested the Galaxy Fold using various benchmarks and metrics. You can check it all out by following the tweet thread.
