Samsung looks like it will be leading the charge with its recently revealed Galaxy Fold the first of what could be a three model foldable phone lineup. This also expires today, when the pre-order period ends. The pre-orders have been much higher than expected.

The case can be charged via a Qi-certified wireless charger or using the reverse charging feature on the Samsung Galaxy S10. Since it has no extra screen, it can be expected to be thinner than the Galaxy Fold.

Ming-Chi Kuo, a name that usually associates with Apple predictions, is providing sales predictions for the Galaxy S10 series.

Kuo's prediction correlates to a 30% to 40% year-on-year rise in Galaxy S10 sales as compared to the Galaxy S9 series.

Based on the 2019 Mobile World Congress, foldable is being cemented as the future of smartphones, with Samsung and Huawei leading the pack. Samsung's lucrative trade-in programs also attracted customers.

All Galaxy S10 devices run on Android 9.0 Pie with Samsung's One UI. The disadvantage to the Fold's approach is that it requires a secondary touchscreen on the front of the device so that it can still be used when the Infinity Flex Display is stowed away. It works even when your hands are wet or dirty. They also mention that the South Korean brand plans on providing free screen replacements to buyers should the display prove to be a problem, which could make the device appealing to more people despite its $1,980 price tag. The Galaxy S10 phones will benefit from the lack of these innovative features on the iPhones.

Samsung is apparently planning to launch its new Galaxy Fold variants late this year or sometime early next year, the report claims. One of the designs is the complete opposite of this, folding outwards.

The Galaxy Fold packs top line specifications such as 12GB of RAM and 512GB of inbuilt storage, as well as a total of six cameras and two batteries with a combined capacity of 4,380mAh.
