According to The Verge, the Galaxy Fold will come in both an LTE and 5G version. It will also feature a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display which means the phone has a tablet-sized screen that can fit into a pocket.

An official Samsung press release shares that the S10 line will include a line of four different premium phones. Each unique phone was constructed to meet the specific needs of today’s smartphone market. The cutting-edge devices come with an all-new AMOLED display and next-generation camera.

Up next is the Galaxy S10e which is built for individuals who want a compact phone and a flat screen. Lastly, the Galaxy S10 5G has the fastest available speeds and houses the most powerful features out of the bunch.
