Samsung has certainly worked well to adapt its apps to the device, but what happens when a third-party developed app is launched without taking into account the specificities of this new category of smartphone?

Samsung today unveiled two smartphones in its Galaxy A-series - Galaxy A50s and Galaxy A30s in India.

Samsung will sell the Galaxy Fold 5G in Korea for about $1,990 with 12GB of RAM and half a terabyte of storage.

"Our coolest new Galaxy A50s and A30s have been created to elevate the smartphone experience of young millennials and Gen Z to the next level as they are equipped with premium features such as Night Mode, Super Steady video and Samsung pay", said Ranjivjit Singh, Senior Vice President and Head of Marketing, Mobile Business, Samsung India in a statement.

According to Samsung fan site SamMobile, the Galaxy Fold will be covered with a standard one-year warranty and an extra warranty that will give users an Infinity Flex Display replacement for a discounted rate in case it breaks for any reason.
