Last night in San Francisco, Samsung unveiled its highly-anticipated foldable phone - the 'Galaxy Fold' - and it only costs... $1,980.

After teasing the phone back in November and building up sufficient hype, the tech giant revealed their latest innovation, which will be available from April 26 in the US, and May 3 in Europe starting at a whopping €2,000. 

It definitely has some impressive new features besides just being able to fold. Users will be able to run three apps simultaneously, as well as seamlessly transition from the 'phone' mode when closed, to the larger 7.3" tablet mode when opened, continuing where they left off.

Unlike the iPhone, the new Samsung phone will come with a free pair of their wireless earbuds (usually priced at $130) which rival Apple airpods. 

The main display is QXGA+ resolution (4.2:3), and when it’s folded, a smaller 4.6" HD+ (12:9) display is used for the phone mode. 

It has 512gb of Universal Flash Storage alongside a Qualcomm 7nm octa-core processor and 12GB of RAM, as well as two batteries separated by the fold. 

There’s a 16-megapixel ultra-wide camera, alongside 12-megapixel wide-angle and telephoto cameras at the rear, and a 10-megapixel cover camera for video calling and of course, taking selfies.
