Who will be able to access the Galaxy Fold Premier Service?

It boasts a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display on the inside and a smaller 4.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED screen on the outside. The Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform is under the hood along with 12GB of memory and 512GB of storage. Samsung's OneUI interface moves all touchable elements to the bottom of the screen so that users don't have to perform finger stretches to have an input register on the display.

A 5G-ready variant will also launch in selected countries.
