I recently spent a bit of time with the Samsung Galaxy Fold, and came away with the definite thought that this phone will have a huge impact on the smartphone ecosystem. The Galaxy Fold has a 4.6-inch display when folded, and when you unfold this, the magic of the 7.3-inch foldable display is something that will captivate your attention. The rest of the specs include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chip, 12GB RAM, 512GB storage and two batteries that total up to 4,380mAh capacity.

If you thought a phone this expensive will have a hard time finding takers, think again.
