Apart from all these things. Now the question arises in your mind that “How will the Galaxy Fold adapt to users swapping between the Cover Display and the tablet screen?” & “How will applications move from one screen to the other seamlessly?”
So, the answer is:
Samsung has repaired its mobile OS after the announcement of its foldable Galaxy Fold. TouchWiz — the Android skin designed by Samsung and used on its smartphone range since June 2010 – replaced instead with One UI.
Samsung said that with Infinity Flex Display One UI, a new kind of mobile experience allows users to work with a simple smartphone.
