A closer look at the “fixed” Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G at IFA 2019 [Video]

A closer look at the “fixed” Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G at IFA 2019 [Video]IFA 2019 is nearing its end, but our coverage certainly isn’t. I managed to secure some time with the new and improved Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G ahead of its release, even getting to see it run on its own 5G network that was available at the venue.

The new Samsung Galaxy Fold has a number of improvements over the previous iteration that was given to tech reviewers across the industry back in April, and some of them are definitely noticeable. The Samsung Galaxy Fold has had a difficult time getting to this point, but it’s finally going to be in the hands of consumers throughout the month of September.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is new and improvedThe Samsung Galaxy Fold features a number of design changes that have been made to make it consumer-ready in the eyes of Samsung. The plastic film across the screen now goes under the bezel for starters, and can’t be peeled back all that easily anymore.

The gap between the screens has also been closed, meaning there’s less room for dirt and other small debris to get inside of the hinge mechanism. Finally, multiple layers of metal have been added under the display to give it a more rigid feeling.#gallery-3 {margin: auto;}#gallery-3 .gallery-item {float: left;margin-top: 10px;text-align: center;width: 50%;}#gallery-3 img {border: 2px solid #cfcfcf;}#gallery-3 .

The Samsung Galaxy Fold that we got to try out had 5G capabilities and reached a maximum download speed of 1000Mbps. Obviously, those aren’t really real-world usage speeds, and it’ll be a lot slower on a public network.

Tha’s still an incredibly impressive theoretical limit, though.#gallery-4 {margin: auto;}#gallery-4 .gallery-item {float: left;margin-top: 10px;text-align: center;width: 50%;}#gallery-4 img {border: 2px solid #cfcfcf;}#gallery-4 .gallery-caption {margin-left: 0;}/* see gallery_shortcode() in wp-includes/media.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold’s main selling point is the fact that it can, well, fold. As such, when it’s folded closed it turns surprisingly thin, with a pretty small 4.6-inch AMOLED panel on the outside. You can technically use the device exclusively like this, though it’s really only for calls, notifications, and smaller periods of usage.

It does have a front-facing camera though, along with its own home screen layout. Unfolding the Fold unlocks its true capabilities, with a dual inward-facing camera setup and a triple camera setup facing outward.CategorySpecificationDisplayMain display: 7.3″ QXGA+ Dynamic AMOLED (4.2:3)Cover display: 4.
