With the foldable phone, Samsung is going on the offense on two fronts in the smartphone race: It is offering an eye-catching new feature with the big, bending screen and the first 5G connection in a premium phone, a feature analysts do not expect Apple to match until 2020 .Samsung is also making improvements to its flagship Galaxy S devices and plans to offer a 4G version of its folding phone.It also challenges the notion of what a phone can cost, debuting at nearly twice the price of current top-of-the-line models from Apple and Samsung itself.Samsung also said that its new Galaxy phones will be able to wirelessly charge its headphones and new smartwatches by setting the accessories on the back of the phone.Along with the folding phone, Samsung also added new cameras and a 5G version to its Galaxy series of phones.Apple is not expected to release a 5G smartphone until late 2020 .That could sway some Apple buyers over to Samsung and other Android makers with 5G devices.
