Samsung Galaxy Fold will run 'hundreds' of optimised apps at launch

LG Rollable Display

That is why, on the day of its launch in South Korea, Samsung is assuring current and would-be owners of its expensive and now rare Galaxy Fold that they won't be left fumbling in the dark with apps that have been updated to take advantage of the new breed of device.

Can I buy one, Samsung?

Samsung today confirmed a few popular apps that will be available from the Google Play Store when the Galaxy Fold goes on sale.

The teaser by Samsung India's Twitter handle shows the "A" logo which appears three times in different background colours and it suggests either that there will be three A-series phones or that there will be one in three different colours. The other functionality is multi-resume which actually lets two apps run simultaneously without pausing, a flawless fit for the multi-window capabilities of the Galaxy Fold.

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

Right after the introduction of the Infinity Flex Display at SDC 2018, Samsung and Google set up test labs in several key cities across the globe and invited partners and developers to test out their apps on the foldable phone. It will then roll out 4G and 5G variants to the United States and other European markets in the coming weeks.

"The new Samsung Galaxy Fold has the potential to usher in a new era of design, and it will be exciting to see what new use cases a foldable experience will unlock for users", said Marc Shedroff, Vice President, Business Development, Facebook. And YouTube has also been optimized for the Galaxy Fold too, according to Samsung.

With Android 10, we can expect improved resizable activities, multi-resume feature and Android Emulator to support multiple-display switching. Those features have been included in the just-released Android 10. This afternoon, Samsung announced that "hundreds" of apps have been optimized for the Fold as we await a launch here in the US.
