Samsung: Galaxy Fold has 'hundreds of apps', including these top Android choices

Samsung: Galaxy Fold has 'hundreds of apps', including these top Android choices

After the Galaxy A30s was certified by SIRIM, two more models have also gotten the green light and one of it is the Samsung Galaxy A50s.

The highlights of the Samsung Galaxy Fold are of course 5G and that folding screen.

The teaser by Samsung India's Twitter handle shows the "A" logo which appears three times in different background colours and it suggests either that there will be three A-series phones or that there will be one in three different colours. It lists Amazon Prime Video, iHeartRadio, App in the Air, and even Microsoft Office as those apps and partners that have gotten on the train.

Ahead of Samsung's official launch of Galaxy Fold sales in Korea this Friday, the company has revealed that hundreds of apps have been updated to support the foldable tablet-handset. It will then roll out 4G and 5G variants to the USA and other European markets in the coming weeks.

Samsung on why Galaxy Fold won't be a software flop

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 Galaxy M30s can also be defined as the organization's first Galaxy M cellphone to game 48-megapixel rear camera. This means more apps on the Play Store would now be compatible with features such as seamless App Continuity and Multi-Active Window as compared to the initial launch date.

Additionally, with Android 10, Google added code to the operating system to natively support foldable devices. Those features have been included in the just-released Android 10.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is coming to the United States in the coming weeks, but before it reaches the hands of future owners, the manufacturer is talking about the efforts involved in designing a user interface, and apps, for a foldable device. Well, the Korean tech giant says it began development way back in April 2018 and collaborated with Google, other app partners and Android developers.
