You perhaps feel more refined and educated than the peasants next to you scrolling memes on Facebook (like me).

If you like reading books, you’d understand that the feeling of holding a physical book and flipping its pages is unmatched by any smart gadget.

Well, Samsung is upping its game on that note.

Get it? Note? Samsung Note? Okay.

A foldable phone? Impossible.

While foldable smartphones seemed like a pipe dream at first only possible in superhero and sci-fi movies, Samsung has proved they’re at the technological forefront once more.

Samsung has stated that it aims to introduce a “first-of-its-kind user experience” that allows for creativity and multitasking at its fullest.

You now no longer have to choose between watching your Korean drama or playing Mobile Legends (if you’re seriously that good at multi-tasking).

Also, now you no longer have to worry if you’re the type to break your phone easily.

But if this is you on a regular basis, you need to get yourself checked for possible superhuman strength.

The Avengers could always use extra help. Especially in the absence of Iron Man and Cap.

Too soon?

On top of its 7.3 inch immersive display, its versatile camera and functionalities will prove itself to be a gadget out of this galaxy.

Now, if you’re confused and say, “Eh, I thought this one is out months ago,” read on.

Originally Scheduled to be Launched in April

Earlier this year, when the phone or tablet or whatever you want to call it was announced, everyone went apeshit.

The device was scheduled to be launched on 26 April 2019, but review units sent to tech sites revealed multiple problems, in particular, a pronounced bulge on the fold of the screen.

Samsung then cancelled the launch, and over in the US, telcos had to refund all pre-orders and some even gave freebies as a form of apology.

Back then, Samsung didn’t provide a new date for the launch, and some of us thought that this would be put on the back burner, probably for years.

But on 24 July 2019, Samsung announced a September release, promising improvements and now, it’s September, so yahoooo.

It’ll Cost Around SGD $3,088

Wait, what?

Nope, I didn’t add an extra digit by mistake.

It costs more than $3,000.

With that money, you could buy two laptops with money leftover.

Or even better, you could eat roughly 1,000 plates of chicken rice.

But maybe, just maybe, the price is worth it for such a pioneering invention?

Okay, but this phone is legit chio sia.
