Samsung Galaxy Fold

As phone companies compete to release phones with foldable screens, Samsung is finally ready to introduce its Galaxy Fold to the masses. Available April 26, the phone opens up like a book and has secondary display that serves as its "cover."

To achieve the phone's design with no visible line across the screen, the Fold has what the company calls an Infinity Flex Display. Essentially made out of a fancy plastic material, the screen can flex and fold hundreds of times without breaking.
