    Steve Jobs might have liked the Fold, because of its compact 4ish inch folded screen.

    The presenter is borrowing Steve Jobs line.
    The phone doesn't look any thing special.All they did is added one more screen using set of gears.Guess I need to buy a lubricating oil also.

    I like the fact it’s portable. Pocket size......! Hate my pockets are always too small to hold my iphone pluses.... it falls out of my pocket but I dont want to give up the screen size. This samsung device is very appealing to someone like me 👍🏻

    i guess this is just a prototype now, cause there is NO other vloger's hands-on video, only Samsung's ad, just like the 1st generation Iphone Steve Jobs showed us.

      Samsung users are not as geeky as Apple users, so meh its just a phone that turns into a tablet.
      Audience only got excited when they could what it actually does.
      Probably proves Galaxy users are smarter than iphone users
      Or maybe after all the apple FU that there is sceptic audience.

    Really cool concept that Apple will steal as their own as usual. People who say they don’t see a purpose are not very opened to the new possibilities. For people in the service industry, HVAC, plumbers, delivery people, doctor offices and so on. They can pull up any info they need on a tablet size screen and go to their next call. Get a signature be on their way

    $2000 for a phablet! I think I can buy a premium phone and a premium tablet for that price! Galaxy its fate defined by its name? Very neat but not for that price. And by the way, stop pretending being Steve Jobs, there is only one and he is not in this world anymore.
    PS- the “thank yous” before applause were quite cheesy....
