Mobile operator EE will be the exclusive UK network to offer the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The phone will also be sold in the Samsung online store and Samsung Experience stores.
You can register your interest now. Pre-orders will launch on April 26, and the phone will go on sale May 3.
It will cost £ 1,799 and come with the Galaxy Buds wireless earbuds and a slim Kevlar protective case.
There are four colors to choose from: Space Silver, Cosmos Black, Martian Green and Astro Blue. The latter two are exclusive to Samsung, so you won’t be able to purchase them from EE. These two colors are also available with your choice of hinge color: Dark Silver or Gold.
The Galaxy Fold is the first foldable phone to hit the market in the UK. It works as both a tablet and a smartphone. When unfolded it has a 7.3 inch screen and when folded in half the screen is 4.6 inches.
The device initially impressed, but some have since raised concerns about the design of the handset. As a phone, it looks rather bulky with extra thick bezels. There are also questions about the crease in the middle of the screen in tablet mode. The images that Samsung released have managed to hide this fold, but some trade show photos tell a different story.
He was also somewhat cast into the shadows by the Huawei mate x. This foldable phone has larger screens than the Galaxy Fold, a sleeker design, and it’s much thinner when in smartphone mode.
Nevertheless, the Galaxy Fold is undoubtedly an innovation. The larger screen allows you to use three apps at once, such as YouTube, WhatsApp, and Google Search, which will do wonders for your productivity. Or be a massive distraction.
It also has two batteries, giving you around 36 hours of use, and no less than six cameras.
