Since the display size is big enough it will be a pleasure watching movies and videos on this smartphone with crisp colours and dynamic detail range. The big screen would definitely not help in increasing the pixel quality of the camera but will help in enhancing the composition of the images.

Many apps take advantage of the folding display to display more content and controls.

Expected Price and Launch date

The expected launch date as said by Samsung is somewhere near the last two weeks of August this year and you should have to pay a sum of around 80k – 1 lakh rupees.

All in all in my opinion it is the perfect smartphone in this price range as it comes with a nice, cohesive camera with an old wrap charm or space-saving in the pocket of users and Flagship Security which no other android phone can offer. Also, how can we forget Samsung’s reliable and largest customer care network? But one of the biggest mistakes with this mobile phone is that because of its compact capabilities, it is very weak to manage. One can buy this mobile phone without any hesitation if he wants a flying phone that they can handle carefully.
