It's the "never before" part I'm currently struggling with. If this is, as Denison intimated, a sort of all-in-one phone and tablet, I'll surely be browsing, watching, connecting and multitasking exactly as I did before.
And frankly, when I look at the iPhone XS Max, isn't that an all-in-one phone and tablet? It's certainly close.
Denison explained that Samsung had invented new materials and thrown out old assumptions.
Technically, there's glory inside. Practically, however, why would you buy it?
Denison said the full display was 7.3 inches. Which means when it's folded, the smartphone itself is really quite small. I thought small smartphones were passé. Didn't Apple discontinue the iPhone SE?
But then Denison got to it. He wants developers to help Samsung create something beautiful. He's excited by the idea that you can run three apps at the same time.
Are you excited? Is this something you need? I'm not sure I do.
What, then, is the core excitement here? The sheer form of it? The sheer relief that it's possible to have a phone that folds?
Of course, this isn't the finished product. I can't help thinking, however, this isn't a foldable phone at all. It's a foldable tablet. It's a way of carrying a bigger screen in your pocket without having to buy enormous cargo pants.
It's clearly something Android manufacturers intend to push. Google is in the fold.
And you, well, you just want something new and cool, don't you? Something that doesn't look like an iPhone.
