The Samsung Galaxy Fold will cost $1,800 without carrier subsidies and sport a 6,000-mAh battery, two cameras, and next-generation Exynos or Snapdragon processors.
At least that’s what a new 74-page report on the future of foldable phones by Korean analysts CCS-CIMB Research unearthed by Dutch tech blog Lets Go Digital claims.
The report is extremely detailed when it comes to Samsung’s flexible phone — which may be called Galaxy Fold. The research firm claims the device will have a battery divided in two packs — one per blade — with a total capacity of 5,000 to 6,000 mAh. That’s not surprising: the internal 7.3-inch 2152 x 1536-pixel foldable screen and the front cover display are going to suck a lot of power even while they are OLED.
The report — which claims that all the information has been verified with the component suppliers listed below — also says it will have two cameras on the back with 12 megapixel sensors and a 8 megapixel on the cover.
Finally, the Korean firm claims that the Galaxy Fold will be powered by an Exynos 9820 CPU in Korea and the Snapdragon 8150 in the US.
