Samsung Galaxy Fold will run 'hundreds' of optimised apps at launch

At the same time, Samsung seemed to wish to reassure potential consumers that even though this device is new, the Android ecosystem with which it works is more than just robust - it's been prepared for this device quite specifically. We're talking average 4G download speeds of 39.4, 39, and 37.3 Mbps respectively, but although Samsung technically fell short of the United States podium, its Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10 are deemed part of the "joint top" club, with impressive rates of their own exceeding 36 Mbps.

We knew at nearly the same time as Samsung first introduced the Galaxy Fold's display technology (Infinity Flex) that Google was and had been working with Samsung on Foldable Device-optimized Android software. The company said it made several improvements to the Galaxy Fold's hardware. The reason why we are saying that is because Samsung has recently published a new blog post in which it revealed that Galaxy Fold will have access to hundreds of apps. One of the questions that many potential buyers are asking themselves these days is certainly the support of third-party applications for the foldable display of the Galaxy Fold.

It looks like Samsung is bringing its refreshed Galaxy A lineup to Malaysia very soon. Also available will be VSCO and App in the Air.

Samsung on why Galaxy Fold won't be a software flop

As far as the specifications are concerned, the new Galaxy A50s will feature a FHD+ Super AMOLED Infinity U display along with resolution of 1080X2340 pixels. Those features have been included in the just-released Android 10.

Google has also introduced changes in Android 10 which improve resizable activity, multi-resume functionality and enhanced multi-display type switching.

Samsung notes that for apps that haven't been optimized for the Galaxy Fold, there's the device's built-in "app-optimizing technology", which resizes an app's content and screen ratio to suit both the large display and folded-state display.
