Samsung’s category-defining Galaxy Fold is now available in a few countries around the world! Yes, this is the official launch as the date announced earlier this year was postponed. The Galaxy Fold was first shown off to the world before the grand launching of the Galaxy S10 series earlier this year.
Today, the Galaxy Fold is finally available in Korea, and followed by a few countries, including France, Germany, Singapore, U.K., U.S., and more. The Galaxy Fold will be available in a total of 2 different colors – Cosmos Black and Space Silver, and also available in 5G-ready option in select countries.
While the Galaxy Fold’s design is already sophisticated and complicated enough, Samsung has further refined and improved it to ensure the best possible experience.
Samsung also designed a unique foldable UX to provide the most intuitive user experience to be used while folded and unfolded. When closed, you can shoot a quick video, and then simply open the device to watch it on a larger screen. App Continuity here is important as the app automatically scales and goes into the big screen when unfolded, and vice versa. Since you can have a large display, the Multi-Active Window feature allows multiple apps running at once in real-time and effectively multitask.
By opting a 5G option, the Galaxy Fold can be your ultimate smartphone for both gaming and media consumption.
Every Galaxy Fold comes with exclusive access to specialized customer care services – including one-on-one access to Samsung experts, and a 24/7 support hub online or over the phone. Samsung will elaborate on plans in each market to ensure every aspect of the Galaxy Fold experience is as extraordinary as the device itself.
