In the past 18 months, Samsung has set up test facilities around the world to encourage developers in the Android ecosystem to ensure that their apps are sufficiently modified for the foldable experience. Samsung may be getting ready to unveil an updated Galaxy Fold... but would you buy one following the fiasco?

After its recent Korean re-launch, the Samsung Galaxy Fold will come to the United States in the "coming weeks". Like the A50s this device also comes in 2 memory configurations - 4/64GB & 4/128GB. The smartphones have gone on sale today via Amazon, Flipkart, Paytm Mall, and Samsung Online Shop.

"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. Galaxy A30s features an in-display fingerprint sensor.

Samsung Galaxy A50s features a 6.4-inch Full HD+ Infinity-U Super AMOLED (2340 x 1080 pixels) display. Samsung A50 (Review) and Samsung A30, launched earlier this year, precede these launches.

If the Samsung Galaxy Fold is going to be any sort of success, it won't just be because the phone is a way for Samsung to showcase the advancements they have made in phone technology and manufacturing. According to a TENNA leak, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy M series phone will sport fast charging ability and will be priced at under Rs 20,000. This suggests that multi-tasking and app continuity between screens will be a big focus for these apps. They respectively allow users to switch seamlessly from the cover display to the main display, as well as run multiple apps simultaneously. Those features have been included in the just-released Android 10.

Galaxy A50s also features "Alive Camera" features such as Best Shot Suggestion which points to the best composition while shooting.
