In April, the South Korean Samsung brand introduced us to a new folding terminal Samsung Galaxy Fold. Presented as a technology that was supposed to be a revolution on the mobile devices market, folded smartphones have attracted everyone's attentiondue to its interesting design and, above all, spectacular power.
