Samsung Galaxy Fold: hundreds of apps supported at launch, thanks to Google

Samsung on why Galaxy Fold won’t be a software flop

Samsung is refreshing the smartphone models it launched earlier this year with an '-s' suffix-the Galaxy M30s was announced to be launched on 18 September by the Korean electronics major.

Samsung Galaxy A50s and A30s were launched in India on Wednesday at an event in New Delhi. Whereas, the Galaxy A30s will be available for Rs 16,999 for 4/64GB variant. This is coupled with up to 6GB RAM and 128GB storage, which is expandable up to 512GB.

But given the new form factor of the Galaxy Fold, app developers have needed to tweak products to ensure they support the two screens smoothly, especially during transitions from a closed to open state.

On the front, the smartphone comes with a 6.4-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity-U display and is equipped with on-screen fingerprint unlocking. There's a 32MP camera on the front tucked away within the notch cutout for selfies. The smartphones have gone on sale today via Amazon, Flipkart, Paytm Mall, and Samsung Online Shop.

The company says there will be "hundreds" of apps in the Google Play Store and the Galaxy Store.

One of the biggest changes aboard in this successor is the triple camera setup, which is packing a 25MP (f/1.7) primary camera, an 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a third 5MP depth sensor.

The new Galaxy A50s includes all essential connectivity options including Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, and a USB Type-C port.

We are unable to confirm at this point if the information above is correct, but, at the least, bumping the phone's fast charging capabilities up from the usual 15W would be most welcomed for a large 6,000mAh unit which would inevitably require a fair amount of recharge time. The Galaxy A50s and Galaxy A30s both feature a triple rear camera setup and an in-display fingerprint sensor.

The device is powered by an octa-core Exynos 7904 processor and also comes with the AI powered Game Booster technology, Knox Security and Samsung Pay. As for the battery, the smartphone packs a 4,000 mAh battery that supports 15 W charging.
