Samsung’s Galaxy S10 Fold was the star of its big launch event held in San Francisco on Wednesday.
A couple of days before I’d been given a sneak preview of the other phones to be unveiled in the flagship Galaxy S range, handsets which will sell in far greater numbers than the folding version.
The new Galaxy S10 – the latest model of what has been a phenomenally successful device for the world’s leading manufacturer – is pretty impressive.
With its huge screen curving round the edge of the device, a camera with three lenses including a wide angle option and all sorts of AI to optimise its performance, it is probably the best smartphone you can buy right now.
But it is, like all of its rivals, another rectangular slab of black glass. And if you tried to explain to someone who was not an avid consumer of smartphone spec sheets what was so different and new about it, you would struggle.
