Today, Samsung Electronics announced the release of the Galaxy Fold, a totally new class of mobile technology, which will be available in Korea on September 6, followed by select countries including UK, US, France, Germany, Singapore and more, in Cosmos Black and Space Silver.
Consumers can experience the future on the fastest network speeds available with a 5G-ready option in select countries.
Galaxy Fold was devised to offer new experiences. When closed, you can get access to your nitty-gritties on the cover display easily with one hand, and when closed, you can discover new ways to watch videos, multitask, play games and more, on its appealing 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display.
Samsung has been fine-tuning the Galaxy Fold during the past few months, to ensure it offers the best possible experience. It not only improved the Galaxy Fold’s design and construction but also made time to rethink the whole customer journey.
DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics, said, “The category-defining Galaxy Fold is a device that defies the barriers of traditional smartphone design. Now, we’re excited to release this pioneering mobile technology, and allow consumers to experience it for themselves,” “Consumers have responded positively to larger screens, and the Galaxy Fold’s revolutionary form factor offers a bigger, more immersive screen without sacrificing portability. This is what we call innovation of new mobile experience in action.”
Different User Experience
The Galaxy Fold combines smartphone and tablet features to offer a new type of mobile device and a different user experience, whether it’s the new form factor and materials or the unique foldable US, nifty camera or top performance. Samsung worked with partners to design a completely new UX which will change how we use our mobiles and makes full use of the foldable design with its cover and main displays. Therefore, the device unlocks new possibilities for users.
The Galaxy Fold changes the way mobile content is captured, shared and edited. When closed, you can film a quick video and then just open the device to see it on a bigger screen. The video transitions easily from the cover display to the main display with App Continuity. The Multi-Active Window allows you to run multiple apps together in real-time and efficiently multitask: edit video, browse through the photo gallery, and read emails, all at once.
In select markets, Galaxy Fold users can take full advantage of their carrier’s fastest speeds with a 5G-ready option. The Galaxy Fold 5G uses the full power of next-generation connectivity whether for streaming and downloading high-resolution videos or graphics-heavy games, at astonishing speeds. It is changing the way we watch content and multitask by letting us do more with the 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display.
Also, with Galaxy Fold, you get access to specialized customer care services, including individual access to Samsung experts, and a 24/7 support hub online or by phone. Samsung will give details on plans in each market to make sure every part of the Galaxy Fold experience is as outstanding as the device itself.
