It has accelerated the popularization of foldable phones by excluding premium features and significantly lowering the price.

We already explained the new foldable device from Samsung info. A new entry-level device will come under the Samsung Galaxy A series. The selling price is greatly reduced to less than 100 million won. As of last year, the price of the new Galaxy Z Fold and Flip was between 1.25 and 2 million won.
Samsung worked in all segments to target the audience. This is because the price is low and the spread is fast. In fact, Galaxy A sales are overwhelmingly higher than Galaxy S. Samsung occupies 90% of the foldable phone market share.
A quick history of Samsung’s foldable phones:
A prototype of the Galaxy Fold and its “Infinity Flex Display” was first launched during a Samsung developers’ conference in November 2018. Google stated that it would work with OEMs to support foldable devices on Android (an effort achieved natively in Android 10).
The first foldable from the South Korean tech firm was the Galaxy Fold which contains two displays; its front cover contains a small, 4.6-inch display in the center designed for one-handed use, and the device can fold open to expose a 7.3-inch display.
Samsung rated the fold mechanism as supporting up to 200,000 uses. The Samsung Galaxy Fold uses Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor and surprisingly 12 GB of RAM and has 512 GB of non-expandable storage.
The device contains two batteries split between the two halves totaling 4380 mAh. The Galaxy Fold contains 6 cameras, using the same sensors equipped on the Galaxy S10+, including three rear-facing camera lenses (12-megapixel, 12-megapixel telephoto, and 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle), as well as a 10-megapixel front-facing camera on the cover, and a second 10-megapixel front-facing camera, accompanied by an RGB depth sensor, on the inside screen.
Several reviewers broke the screen by mistakenly removing one of the clear laminate layers that cover it. At the time the company said that the “special protective layer” that coats the screen must not be removed, as doing so may cause damage to the screen. Concerns were raised that consumers may mistake it for a pre-installed screen protector without proper advisories.
