Samsung has announced it will soon allow potential customers to reserve a spot in line to pre-order a Galaxy Fold. The device, originally announced in February, is Samsung’s first foldable phone to date. That makes it a hot item, and there’s bound to be plenty of fanfare from Samsung lovers. That’s why the company will only make reservations available to those who register beforehand.
If you want to be one of the first people to pre-order a Galaxy Fold, Samsung says you’ll have to opt in on its website to receive more information about the Galaxy Fold. Once finished, starting tomorrow, April 12th, you’ll be able to reserve your spot in line to order a Fold in advance. This doesn’t mean you’ll be able to pre-order one immediately, mind you. It just guarantees you the opportunity to pre-order one. That’s why it’s free.
Samsung didn’t state in its announcement when pre-orders will open for the Galaxy Fold, but it will be relatively soon. The phone goes on sale starting April 26th, at which point everyone will be able to drop $1,980 on the foldable smartphone. As far as retail availability, select AT&T, T-Mobile, Best Buy, and Samsung Experience stores will have the device on display and ready to be purchased. In addition, T-Mobile says you’ll be able to buy it on their website. The same should reign true for Samsung, Best Buy, and AT&T.
With the Galaxy Fold, you get two screens. There’s one 4.6-inch panel on the front, while a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display sits inside that comes to life once unfolded. Six cameras, 12GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and reverse wireless charging accompany the device. In addition, with your purchase, you get free wireless Galaxy Buds. T-Mobile also touts an included carbon fiber case.
