Yesterday, Samsung reminded us that the Galaxy Fold – first foldable smartphone by Samsung will be going to launch in the US this month. Consequently, this will become the first foldable smartphone that is going to be officially released stateside.
Additionally, T-Mobile (which should be offering the handset online on April 25), AT&T will along carry the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Both T-Mobile and AT&T will sell the new device in stores starting from April 26. Select Best Buy locations and as well as the Samsung Experience Stores will have the Galaxy Fold in stock, too.
People who want to make sure they are among the first to buy this Galaxy Fold can now reserve the phone through the official website of Samsung. According to Samsung, Galaxy Fold will be limited in supply. So, if you have got the money and wish to have this handset then you should probably reserve it as soon as possible. When you are done placing the reservation, you will get a notification to complete your exclusive pre-order. However, it is not clear when pre-order will actually going to open.
It was February when Samsung first make an announcement of Galaxy Fold, it was said that the handset will be priced at a $1,980 price. After that there’s been no update regarding the price, so we assume that this is how much it’ll cost when it finally goes on sale. The handset will come with a carbon fiber case along with free Galaxy Buds wireless earphones at T-Mobile.
More about Galaxy Fold
Unlike other foldable phones of the past, the Samsung Galaxy Fold supports an inner display that’s literally foldable. Samsung has conducted many tests that have allegedly shown that this handset has a flexible display that can survive at least 200,000 folds and unfolds without getting damaged. All in all, the device has the ability to fold about 100 times per day for no less than 5 years. You can also see how Samsung is testing the Galaxy Fold in the video mentioned below.
There is something that you will not get in this new smartphone is a standard 3.5mm headset jack. But the wireless earphones that Samsung plans to give away will compensate for that partially. One more thing to keep in mind is that the Galaxy Fold is not water-resistant as well as dust. Moreover, this is not a 5G phone, so the Galaxy S10 5G (expected to launch in May) is Samsung’s only handset that’s compatible with next-generation networks.
Lastly, T-Mobile and AT&T are the only US carriers that will sell the Galaxy Fold, though it looks like no unlocked version of this particular device exists. In other words, if you’re on Verizon, US Cellular, or Sprint buying a foldable smartphone is something that you’ll probably not be able to do in the very near future.
