The phone has two screens and opens like a book as suggested by the earlier leaks. A smaller screen is slapped on the front with a size of 4.5-inches and an aspect ratio of an unusual 21:9. The bigger screen will be a 7.3-inch display which will appear upon unfolding the phone like any book. Both the displays carry a 420ppi pixel density.

The display is made of a new type of material (composed of a “composite polymer”) Samsung says it created specifically for a folding device. It can be folded “hundreds of thousands of times” without breaking down, Samsung SVP of Mobile Product Marketing Justin Denison said.

When folded, the smaller display will have a resolution of 840 x 1960 and 1536 x 2152 when unfolded into a bigger one. The unfolded, tablet version is clearly the primary mode for those types of activities, as it has a more standard 4.2:3 aspect ratio and a screen size of 7.3 inches.

Other brands a jumping on the foldable bandwagon too. Huawei also claims to come up with a 5G enabled foldable phone till summer 2019, Oppo has also patented its foldable phone designs. It seems from notches, now we are entering the era of foldable phones soon.
