Samsung Electronics today announced the launch of the Galaxy Fold 5G. The premium smartphone will be available from 18 September in “Cosmos Black” and “Space Silver” for the price of 2,100 euros (RRP) in Germany and support 5G. All units come as a complete package with Galaxy Buds and a slim, protective aramid fibre cover.
“The Galaxy Fold is a device that transcends the boundaries of traditional smartphone design. Now we are excited to bring the premium smartphone to market, enabling consumers to experience the breakthrough technology themselves, “said DJ Koh, President and CEO of the IT & Mobile Communications Division at Samsung Electronics. “Our customers are demanding ever-larger screens. Thanks to the revolutionary form factor, the Galaxy Fold 5G offers a very large display, but without compromising portability. It’s a device that transcends the boundaries of traditional smartphone design; it’s innovation in action. ”
With the world’s first 7.3 inch 2 Infinity Flex display, the Galaxy Fold 5G stands for a brand new smartphone category. When the device is closed, users can easily access the most important information with one hand via the front display. When it’s open, the full potential of the Galaxy Fold 5G unfolds. It gives users new ways to experience multitasking, watch videos, and play games. The improved design and the revised construction ensure a high degree of stability.
The Galaxy Fold 5G is changing the way users capture and manipulate mobile content: when closed, users can quickly capture a video and watch it on the large screen. With the “App Continuity” function, the video is seamlessly transferred from the front display to the main display. With the “Multi Active Window” function, users can use up to three compatible apps in parallel. So the Galaxy Fold 5G for example, allows the simultaneous editing of footage, while users browse through the photo gallery and reply to messages from friends and colleagues.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold 5G will be available in first quantities in “Cosmos Black” and “Black Silver” for 2,100 euros (RRP) from the 18th of September in the Samsung Online Shop as well as through selected distribution partners.
