Ummm... no, thanks. I'll stick with LG's Dual Screen accessory, ZTE Axom M, and Microsoft Surface Duo. That plastic creasing in the middle of the screen is a total nightmare! Would be happy to have two screen instead, I can run two diifferent apps simultaneously on two different screen without any kind of resizing whatsoever.

Drop the price of the next galaxy fold, fix the crease, make it with s pen and remowe the notch then they can reach this number easily

Then they need to "significantly" reduce the price

Dont get me wrong but Kryocerra Echo was first foldable device back in 2011.
And if we exclude dual screen things like Kryocerra Echo then a Flexpay for 1250 was first and also tested by Jerryrigeverything month before fold has been unveiled.
So Samsung werent first at all.

This is an interesting development. I hope foldable phones will be slimmer than galaxy fold in future. Bold step from Samsung.
