Specs of the Phone
- Pixel density is a standard 420 ppi
- The resolution, when folded, is 840 x 1960
- Resolution when unfolded 1536 x 2152
- Infinity Flex Display is 7.3 inches & 4.2:3 aspect ratio (when unfolded)
- Infinity Flex has a 4.58-inch display with an aspect ratio of 21:9 (when folded)
When unfolded, the Infinity Flex Display can support up to three apps running at the same time. However, it can also be used normally when it’s folded up in its smaller size and have a display of 4.58-inch. Interestingly, users will be able to move or switch between both displays while using an app just by opening the device.
