Samsung has unveiled its highly anticipated Galaxy Fold smartphone device, which unfolds “like a book” from a smartphone into a tablet. According to Samsung, the Galaxy Fold, which will go on sale in two months, sits in its its own technology category – wavering between the two different devices. Unfolded, the device has a 7.3-inch size and functions as a tablet, however when folded in half it can be used as a regular touch-screen smartphone with a 4.6-inch screen.

Instead of bending like its more rounded concept design appeared to, the new device folds – described by Samsung as a more intuitive motion, and a more difficult innovation to deliver.
