Samsung is no stranger to experimenting with new form factors for smartphones, as it proved again this week with the Galaxy Fold.
The gadget maker has released many unconventional phones over the years, from flip phones with swivel hinges to phones with curved screens.
After much anticipation, Samsung finally unveiled its first foldable smartphone on February 20, the appropriately-named Galaxy Fold.
Starting at a whopping $1,980, the Galaxy Fold is a 4.6-inch phone that "unfolds" to become a 7.3-inch tablet. Samsung is pitching the Galaxy Fold as a luxury one-of-a-kind device for those in need of a gadget with more screen space than your average smartphone. During its keynote, the company boasted about how the Galaxy Fold can run three apps simultaneously on screen, for example.
