Samsung announced the new foldable smartphone at its Samsung Unpacked event amid a number of other announcements, including the new Samsung Galaxy S10 models and the Galaxy Buds headphones, according to Wired.

The announcement came after months of speculation that Samsung would release a foldable device.

The foldable phone was the headliner at the event. It’s a new form of technology we’ve never seen before from Samsung or Apple yet.

The phone is available on April 26. It will cost $1,980, which is about $200 more than previously predicted.

And Twitter had some jokes for the new Galaxy Fold phone.
