The Galaxy Fold had a rocky start and was initially recalled from reviewers for further durability enhancements. Since the re-launch, the device has fared better for the most part. With its Canadian launch, the latest device from Samsung is the first foldable smartphone available in Canada.
With a large 7.3-inch screen when opened, the Galaxy Fold offers users a larger screen for multitasking, video watching, playing games and more. Other key features of the device include:
- When closed, access all of your apps comfortably in one hand on the cover display
- When opened, explore new ways to multitask, watch videos, play games, and more on an immersive 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display – the largest-ever screen on a Samsung Galaxy phone
- With Galaxy Fold App Continuity, enjoy intuitive, seamless app transitions between the cover display and the Infinity Flex main display, with an ecosystem of apps that are simple and easy to use
