The highly anticipated Galaxy Fold, a new foldable device creating a new mobile category, is clearly a hit with South Africans. The first batch released has already sold out with pre-order sales. Samsung South Africa is currently working on increasing stock levels to keep up with demand, which is amazing for a smartphone with a pricetag of just R43,999. Even after a delayed-release, there is clearly an appetite for this pioneering device. The Galaxy Fold officially goes on sale in South Africa on 18 October 2019.
Galaxy Fold features the world’s first 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display, which folds into a compact device with a cover display. Galaxy Fold offers a powerful new way to multitask, watch videos, play games, and more – bringing to life new experiences and possibilities years in the making.
“Samsung is proud to introduce a premium foldable device, that goes beyond the limitations of a traditional smartphone,” said Cambridge Mokanyane, Chief Marketing Officer at Samsung South Africa. “The pre-order sales are indicative of the public’s affinity for technology that transcends the norm.”
A Smartphone. A Tablet. Folded into One.
Galaxy Fold is in a category of its own. It delivers a new kind of mobile experience allowing users to do things they couldn’t do with an ordinary smartphone. Users now have the best of both worlds; a compact device that unfolds to reveal Samsung’s largest-ever smartphone display. Galaxy Fold brings together material, engineering and display innovations, developed over eight years following the debut of Samsung’s first flexible display prototype in 2011.
