Samsung’s foldable phone is finally official — meet the Galaxy Fold and it will start at $1,980

The device will start at a whopping $1,980 and arrive on April 26. Samsung says both LTE and 5G-capable variants will be available.

As the company hinted at its developers conference last year, the Galaxy Fold consists of two displays: a 4.58-inch, 1960x840 resolution panel that serves as a more traditional smartphone display, and a foldable 7.3-inch, 2152x1536 resolution panel that behaves more like a tablet.

OLED panels are known in part for their flexibility, which in this case allows users to close the Galaxy Fold like a book. Samsung says it uses a hinge system with “multiple interlocking gears” to create the fold, which the company claims is—and indeed appears to be, at first blush — hidden from view.

Yep it's pretty pricey as a phone but I suppose you need to compare that price to having a phone and a tablet (in one device) and then maybe it's not so expensive.
