It actually looks better than I expected.
A bit pricey at $2k though
What do y'all think?
Exclusive review from JacksFilms
Obviously the price is obscene. But if money doesn't matter its a cool thing to have.
I'm not a fan of tablets. Certainly not android tablets so it serves no purpose for me.
Looks quite thick but expected due to being a first generation fold-able device. I'm sure as the tech gets better they'll be able to thin it down to a point where it's no more thicker than today's handsets once folded.
Front screen is pretty small compared to the standard sizes we see today but I suspect this is aimed at people who want a tablet type device foremost and phone second.
Probably also aimed at those with deep pockets given the price tag!
Was the battery capacity confirmed at all? The folded out screen is sure to draw a lot of power.
If the screen is truly seamless I wouldn't say no... except the bevelled edges that puts me right off can't stand them personally.
I just can't see this taking off, it looks so gimmicky
Good 1st gen attempt, after a few iterations it'll pick up momentum.
Look at the video in the op very carefully from 17 seconds on, you'll notice the crease/fold in the centre due the light shining on it, that's my main concern.
I think it is too narrow to be of use as a phone, meaning I will have to keep opening it up to use it in tablet mode, clumsy. It needed to be the standard phone size first. Not willing to give up that screen space.
Just me who wishes it came with a built in stylus?
Yeah if it came with an s pen then I would be placing a pre order.
That was my only gripe with the note 8 I had to keep turning it landscape to write notes. This samsung fold would work well or maybe it should of been the natural evolution of the Samsung note range?
Yes it crazy this does not come with an built in stylus like the notes have
Am guessing there was no spare free space inside it to fit one
The stylus will come with the 'fold note' edition
The Huawai one has been leaked now
The price is absolutely insane. I guess if you are really into mobile phones and tablets though it would be quite cool. For me though a Kindle Fire 8 HD tablet and a OnePlus 6 will do me just fine .
Maybe in 10 years time when these have reached the £500 price point I might consider it.
You could get a cheap Razr from Ebay and at least get the same snap close satisfaction. That’s the best part anyway
That what am hoping there going to release
Is it more narrow than an iPhone SE when closed? That's a compact phone that lots of small phone users still rave about and seem to desire.
Looks like the Mate X is a better design.
The screen effectively being on the outside edge might make it a bit fragile though.
