Samsungs upcoming folding smartphone was recently shown off at their developer conference in San Francisco, but very little details were revealed beyond it has a folding display. Today the Dutch tech blog Lets Go Digital has obtained a 74-page report which contains new details about the upcoming phone called the Galaxy Fold.

- Starting Price: $1,800 (USA off Contract)
The first item on the list is the display, which is said to be a 7.3-inch foldable OLED panel with a resolution of 2152px x 1536px. This will be the large display on the inside of the phone. The exterior front display specs are not known.
An interesting addition on the inside of the phone is its 6000 mAh battery, which will be split between two cells on either side of the hinge mechanism. This larger battery will help to power the larger display for longer and keep the phone in check with other smartphones regarding battery life through the day.

That's 70% more than the Galaxy S9+. The material breakdown goes on to show Samsung planning on charging a 65% markup for the Galaxy Fold and selling the base model for $1,800 in the US.
