You know what was amazing?
Samsung showed off the galaxy fold, first thing.
It looked really slick in tablet mode.
When open, you get a 7.3 inches screen and a 4.2 by 3 aspect ratio So it's kind of on the square side.
There's a big cutout for its two forward facing cameras on the right.
When it's closed, the Fold has a 4.6 inch display with one camera on the front.
On the back are the three rear cameras.
Inside, you'll find 12 gigabytes of RAM, and 512 gigs of space.
The craziest thing of all is that Samsung actually announced a date when you can buy this.
April 26th and it will cost just $1980 dollars.
The rest of Samsung's announcements didn't really have much to do with Android, so check out Cnet if you are interested.

Maybe to keep the focus off something more innovating?
