The Samsung Galaxy S10 also has Facial recognition, but it doesn't use 3D mapping for authenticating users. One is said to have a foldable screen on the outside of the smartphone, while the other has a vertical opening with a second screen inside.

According to Bloomberg, while it's too early to judge customer appetite for a folding phone, Samsung is eager to gain the edge before Apple decides to launch its own pliable iPhone. The devices come with an ultra-wide-angle 16 MP lens and a 123-degree Field of View (FoV).

The company is aiming to thin the outward-folding device by not equipping it with a display on the outside-facing surface.

However, a Samsung spokesperson told Bloomberg the Fold was displayed that way to help divert people's focus to the Galaxy S10 models coming out later this week. Samsung is reportedly also working on increasing screen durability, addressing an issue of a crease appearing after 10,000 folds, with one suggestion being a free screen replacement if the issue occurs.

That's one reason why Samsung kept the phone inside a glass case at MWC in Barcelona last month, the person said. The launch of the device comes as the world's biggest phone maker tries to lure back consumers who have become used to incremental upgrades and are being wooed by Chinese manufacturers' lower-priced smartphones. Flip phones still have a small foothold in the feature phone market, but the design is certainly ripe for a reboot with the emergence of foldable displays.

After detailing the display's record-setting enhancements in his report, DisplayMate Technologies' President, Dr. Raymond Soneira, noted that "What is particularly significant and impressive is that Samsung has been systematically improving OLED display performance with every Galaxy generation since 2010".
