Hey, wait a minute, that Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 5 is actually just two iPhones in a trench coat!
That’s the idea behind the latest update to the Try Galaxy web app, which, when running on two iPhones, offers a Samsung One UI demonstration spread across both screens. Samsung says it lets iOS users try out the foldable’s benefits, like watching content on an “immersive” screen, or sample productivity features like dragging and dropping across both screens thanks to its multitasking abilities — something the iPhone could use work on.
To make it happen, you just have to visit the website or scan a QR code on two iPhones, add the web app to your homescreen, and then tape them together (the tape is my own recommendation) to start folding to your heart’s content (via 9to5Google).
Samsung says the app also lets users learn about Galaxy Z Flip and Z Fold phones through its “FlexCam experience,” showing them how being able to fold their phone can capture “memorable moments in a variety of creative angles” or view selfies using the cover screen found on the Z Flip — something the iPhone can’t simulate, since, you know, it doesn’t fold and doesn’t have a screen on the back.
It’s the latest in a long line of Samsung trolls on Apple’s phones, and I have to assume that, like when it made fun of Apple for not including a power adapter with new iPhones or for dropping the headphone jack, it will soon be releasing this app for its own slab phones and encouraging users to grab some duct tape and go to town. If you want to try it, here’s the QR code. Have at it.
