Samsung finally gave us a good look at the Galaxy Fold, its first foldable smartphone. This bendy device is an entirely new form factor that opens and closes like a book. A screen on the outside lets you use the Galaxy Fold like a phone, and a larger screen on the inside lets you use it like a tablet. It costs crazy lots of dollars, but just might have the “wow” factor to back up Samsung’s lofty claims. What’s it packing? Find the full list of Samsung Galaxy Fold specs below:

The outer display measures 4.6 inches and has Quad HD+ resolution in the 21:9 aspect ratio. That’s fairly tall and narrow. When the Fold unfolds, a 7.3-inch QXGA+ screen is within. It has more of a square shape. More importantly, apps that are running on the outer display will seamlessly transition to the inner display and expand to reveal more content. This is called App Continuity, something that Google added to the Android platform. Samsung is the first device maker to really put it to use.
Samsung says it engineered and tested the hinge, which relies on Samsung’s Infinity Flex display, to open and close hundreds of thousands of times.
A mysterious 7nm, 64-bit, octa-core processor powers the Galaxy Fold. Samsung didn’t say if the chip is from its own Exynos line or Qualcomm’s Snapdragon line. The processor is paired with 12GB of memory and 512GB of storage.
This phone has a ridiculous number of cameras: six. One selfie camera on front, three cameras on back (ultra-wide, wide, telephoto), and two cameras facing the user when the Fold is unfolded in tablet mode. The cameras are mostly carried over from the broader Galaxy S10 range.
The Galaxy Fold has to be one of the most expensive phones in the world. It costs a whopping $1,980 for the entry-level 4G LTE version. There’s no word on how much the 5G version will cost. Look for the Galaxy Fold to reach stores on April 26.
