Samsung Galaxy Fold Has two Batteries and will be Expensive

Some new details of the foldable Samsung smartphone surfaced.

Samsung has shown off a foldable smartphone in November. The company only gave a brief glimpse of the device and did not reveal any technical details besides that the foldable screen is called Infinity Flex Display. The rumored name of the first Samsung foldable smartphone is Galaxy Fold.

An analyst report from a Korean bank contains some more details allegedly sourced from a Samsung supplier. The Galaxy Fold has two batteries with an overall capacity of 5,000 to 6,000mAh. A dual 12MP camera system on the back and a 8MP front camera are part of the configuration says the report seen by Dutch tech blog LetsGoDigital.

A foldable smartphone is obviously more expensive than a regular phone, but the difference might be dramatic. The report by CGS-CIMB says that the Bill of Material for the Galaxy Fold is 69% higher than for the Galaxy S9+. The Korean analyst sees the foldable smartphone market rise from 1.3% in 2019 to 9.2% in 2022.

Samsung is expected to release the Galaxy Fold in the first half of 2019. Huawei, LG and Oppo are also jumping right into the foldable smartphone market in 2019, giving Samsung no first mover advantage.
