reveal kicked off Unpacked with a bang on Wednesday, showing off an eye-catching foldable phone with an astounding price tag of $1,980 (about £1,500 or AU$2,800).
It's a high price, but it does contain a lot of luxury-level specs. The phone has six cameras, two batteries, a 4.6-inch cover display when the phone is folded up, a 7.3-inch display when the phone is unfolded, 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage space.
But unless you have money to burn and a craving to fold and unfold a phone,. Odds are the also-revealed -family of phones will be a much more palatable purchase, and even the most expensive is cheaper than the Galaxy Fold.
So is the Galaxy Fold the next great phone innovation? Or is it a cheap trick that is commanding a super-high price? Many of CNET's commenters reside somewhere in the middle. Below are some of our readers' comments from our Galaxy Fold articles around CNET, and we'd love to know whether or not you agree with them.
Comments from around CNET:
"Foldable phones have been science fiction for sooo long. It's great it's finally coming to fruition. People have been opting for larger and larger smart phones for a reason. Foldable gives you both a small phone and a tablet." --
"There's a lot going on. The folding hinge - does it fold then extend/retract to keep the polymer (plastic not glass) screen within the device shell? Why is glass considered "premium" material? How does the polymer compare to Gorilla Glass product? Water/splash resistance? Pocketable? ...looks like it when folded." --
"Not the least bit interested. All I had to hear was 2,000 bucks and I fell off my chair laughing. Just another rich man's toy. I don't see this thing getting too far at this price. Doesn't matter, really. I'm out." --
