STATES UNEDIG, San Francisco, Calif. – Celebrate the tenth anniversary of its line of smart Galaxy phones, the South Korean technological giant Samsung introduced the "Galaxy Fold" with a folding screen.
The "Blink" screen has a large amount of tablet that doubles, becoming a normal smartphone. The additional screen space allows you to perform several tasks at the same time as three applications, as shown by Samsung operators: watch YouTube movies, chat on WhatsApp and browse Google.
However, the announcement at a price of $ 1,980 of the "Bending" causes the audience gathered at the Bill Graham Civic Auditor in San Francisco to be starless. Immediately some critical comments on twitter appeared: "We will not pay 500 dollars for this bulky device." "No one needs to spend their time on three applications, please, one damn thing at a time!" "My prediction is that this Samsung will be the biggest failure in the history of the mobile phone."
13 inch MacBook Pro with 128 GB of storage costs in the US $ 1,299 or $ 681 less than "Fold", which will be sold on April 26.
Samsung is launching this model, between tablets and telephones, as mobile manufacturers are fighting to add exciting features to attract users. South Korea also announced the "Galaxy S10", with a real-edge edge screen and with a small cut in the corner for its two front cameras.
