Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is coming to T-Mobile on April 25th
Just keep in mind, it’s very expensive.
Samsung’s outlandishly expensive $2,000 folding phone, the Galaxy Fold, is making its way to T-Mobile on April 25th and select stores April 26th.
According to the company, the Galaxy Fold will connect T-Mobile’s 600 MHz Extended Range LTE and will be available in Space Silver, with 512GB memory, a 4,380 mAH battery and wireless PowerShare capabilities. A free carbon fiber case along with Samsung’s new wireless Galaxy Buds are also included in the box.
As for what T-Mobile plans to charge customers for this phone, pricing isn’t really clear at this point. The company suggests checking their website for pricing and availability on April 25th at 9 PM PT.
However, if folks don’t want to go through a carrier, Samsung will be accepting preorders on April 11. But beware, you have to pre-order your pre-order spot, because that makes sense. Additionally, the 5G version of the Galaxy S10 will be available for preorders at the same time.
For those of you out of the loop, the Samsung Galaxy Fold is a foldable smartphone that features two batteries and six cameras
When closed, the phone features a 4.6-inch display and when opened reveals a 7.3-inch screen. A patented hinge system (which also as color options) makes opening and closing a smooth, streamlined experience. Surprisingly, the screen looks great when opened and you would be hard-pressed to notice that it was ever folded close.
With the Samsung Fold, you’ll be able to simultaneously use three different apps when the phone is open and Samsung states it has app continuity with the Fold, meaning you can look at something with the phone closed and then open it to continue browsing on the larger screen.
Sadly, the phone does not include a headphone jack. For a better look at the phone, check out this eerily quiet four-minute promotional video Samsung released a few months ago. Again, it folds. That’s about the gist of it.
