Can Galaxy Fold, S10 range help Samsung tame falling sales?

The leading smartphone maker's answer to the sales is a phone that can be folded. But is that worth nearly $2,000?

by

    Samsung Electronics has unveiled a new folding smartphone, Galaxy Fold, in a bid to deal with the fierce competition from Apple and a host of Chinese rivals.

    The company hopes that the launch of Galaxy Fold, along with the latest editions of its flagship Galaxy S series - Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10+ and Galaxy S10e - will reignite consumer interest amid slumping sales.

    Will it be enough for the industry leader to overcome a shrinking market?
