Galaxy Fold comes with 12GB of RAM and 512GB internal storage. In its standard form, the device gives you a 4.6-inch screen experience for normal day-to-day task but as you unfold it -- the cross-screen functionalities go seamless on a bigger, immersive 7.3-inch form factor as the plastic OLED (P-OLED) display can bend like a book.

Each device comes with Galaxy Buds in the box and "Aramid Fiber" case made of fibre that is said to have high capacity to withstand pressure.
