Samsung Galaxy Fold supports 'hundreds' of apps including Facebook

Galaxy A50s

"We are excited to work with Samsung to bring Prime members their favorite shows, movies and live sports on the Galaxy Fold", said BA Winston, Global Head of Digital Video Playback and Technology at Amazon Prime Video. After the Galaxy A30s was certified by SIRIM, two more models have also gotten the green light and one of it is the Samsung Galaxy A50s.

Samsung Galaxy A50 has started receiving a new software update that improves its touchscreen performance, according to a report. NFC support was not included in the Malaysian variants of Galaxy A30 and A50 and it seems that Samsung Malaysia could be leveraging on Samsung Pay as a key differentiator in their latest mid-range offering. These include Spotify, Amazon Prime Video, App in the Air, Facebook, iHeartMedia, Twitter, VSCO and - perhaps most importantly from a practical point of view - those from Microsoft.

Samsung has been working with a number of partners including Google to optimize apps for their new Galaxy Fold smartphone. Nevertheless, it is expected to reach other markets including India in the coming days. Samsung has certainly worked well to adapt its apps to the device, but what happens when a third-party developed app is launched without taking into account the specificities of this new category of smartphone? That includes not just the underlying Android platform but also apps like Maps and YouTube.


The Galaxy A50s features a 6.4-inch FHD+ Infinity-U Super AMOLED display (1080*2340 resolution) found on its predecessor.

Connectivity features of the device include 4G VoLTE, USB Type-C, Bluetooth v5.0 and wifi. Samsung says that these apps with their optimized experiences are now available on Google Play and the Galaxy Store. Samsung also released a "remote test lab", which allowed developers to test their apps with the help of a Galaxy Fold emulator on their PC.
