This new release by Samsung has stirred a new beam of excitement among the tech-savvy folks all over the world.
In this article, we shall discover the features of the New Galaxy fold, its sale process and the cost. Let’s get started with this.
What is Galaxy Fold?
Galaxy Fold is the newest smartphone released by Samsung.
It also has a very special quality. It looks like two galaxy phones stacked on top of one another. When folded, you can use it just like a normal smartphone.
When you open it, you have a tablet in your hands which offers you a wider screen for viewing movies, photos and also playing your favourite games and what not!!
In one way, we can say this is a tablet-cum-smartphone in the true sense.
Why is it so Unique?
There is a reason why there is much fuss about the brand-new Galaxy Fold.
Samsung was ever since known for coming up with innovative technology, especially mobile phones.
You must remember the old foldable button phones that we all used to play games in our childhood.
So, the concept of a foldable phone is not at all new to the world.
But, the concept of a foldable phone, along with the features of both a smartphone and a tablet is definitely a new one. With just unfolding one of the layers, a modest mobile phone turns itself into a tablet.
This makes it exciting and proves the ingenuity of Samsung beyond any doubt.
Definitely, this model will raise the standards of smartphones existing right now and will almost definitely face competition from other companies like Huawei.
What are the features of Galaxy Fold?
Here are a few features of Galaxy Fold other than that it is foldable.
The phone, in its ‘primary mode’, has a 7.3-inch touchscreen and a resolution of 1536*2452 pixels. The second display, however, features a 4.6 touch screen along with an 840*1960-pixel resolution.

#4 Operating System

The all new Samsung Galaxy Fold comes with a whopping 512 GB of internal storage.
#7 Connectivity Options
Galaxy Fold supports connectivity through WIFI, GPS and Type C USB.
Galaxy Fold was launched in Astro Blue, Cosmos Black, Space Silver and Martian Green colours. Aren’t all of them so exciting?
So, these were the special features of the newest release by Samsung. With this detail, let us now move on to the sales procedure for Galaxy Fold.
Samsung had already warned that Galaxy Fold will be a limited edition and that the potential customers need to register for a pre-order process.
This pre-order registration process began on the 12th of April 2019 and the actual pre-order started from the 15th of April 2019.
To be a part of this, first of all, you need to register yourself on the website for pre-bookings. Then follow the procedure to place a pre-order which will be later communicated to you through an email.
The second step will happen only if there are any empty slots i.e. when any other pre-order customer opts out of the sale.
This page on the website depends on the country you live in.
For example, though the US and Australian websites have this pre-register option, the UK website does not have this yet because probably the company might be planning to release Galaxy Fold in the UK sometime in future but not at the present.
What does Galaxy Fold come with?
The all-new Galaxy Fold comes with a pair of wireless Galaxy Buds earphone and a carbon fibre case in the package itself.
What is the cost of the Galaxy Fold?
The basic model of Galaxy Fold with a 512 GB internal storage and a 12 GB RAM comes with a price-tag of about $1980.
There is another variant with LTE and 5G support, which might add to the cost.
The prices in the UK and Australia have not yet been released officially.
Where can I purchase Galaxy Fold?
As of now, Galaxy Fold is only available with a pre-order on select online stores like AT&S and select Mobile T-stores.
Make sure you check the store availability and the colours and other specifications with the store before you hop into a pre-order deal.
The company claims that the reservations for the new Galaxy Fold are full right now and new customers will have to wait either till someone else opts out or till these smartphones are out in the market just like other smartphones.
This was an attempt at a review of the brand-new Samsung Galaxy Fold which is all set to hit the stores by 26th of April 2019.
The features and the look of the phone itself are sufficient to convince any tech-savvy person to try out and personalise one.
The innovation in the foldable technology has excited both the fans of traditional smartphones and tablets by bringing the technology of both of these in one device.
Galaxy Fold, with all its specifications, is all set to raise the bar of smartphones in the market.
