About Samsung Galaxy Fold
Samsung is one of the most popular smartphone & consumer electronic brands in the world. While it utilizes multiple operating systems, this South Korean firm is known mainly for its Android-powered Galaxy series. The Samsung Galaxy Fold is the most forward-thinking smartphone of 2019, finally delivering on the promise of a foldable phone, and instantly proving a real head-turner out on the streets. And yet, it’s still not something we can recommend to most people.
Samsung has refined the Galaxy Fold over the course of a five-month delay to its launch, reinforcing the points where it broke in the hands of early reviewers. But we’re still in constant fear of pixel tearing or damaging the vulnerable plastic screen.
The arrival of the Samsung Galaxy Fold gives you the opportunity to own the future of smartphones and tablets, with a 2-in-1 design that just makes sense – if the bendable screen technology holds up.
The Galaxy Fold delivers a ‘wow’ factor that no other phone offers today. It’s a technical marvel, with technical limitations, and it makes us hopeful for a more fully rounded sequel. The key to the Galaxy Fold’s book-like foldable design is a 20-part, dual-axis locking hinge that prevents the display from overextending past 180 degrees. Whereas the screen is delicate, the hinge feels like it’s been meticulously engineered to withstand.
Opening and closing the Fold feels buttery smooth, and closing it ends with a satisfying magnetic click, as you’ve just closed up a book. Remember what it was like to hang up on people with a flip phone or even an old telephone? That feeling is back – only now, you’ll probably swallow them up in a video call, It marries a tall, narrow 4.6-inch ‘cover’ display behind glass on the outside with the foldable, mini-tablet-like 7.3-inch ‘main’ display behind plastic on the inside.
Samsung calls this the Infinity Flex Display, and its design really does dazzle. It was launched in Space Silver, Cosmos Black, and Martian Green and Astro Blue colors.

STORAGE AND CONNECTIVITY
The Samsung Galaxy Fold has an internal storage of 512GB, which is huge to keep all the files and data of the users without any issue. There is no expandable memory slot.
For the connectivity, it comes with 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11, Mobile Hotspot, Bluetooth, GPS with A-GPS, Glonass, NFC, USB Type-C, etc.
When it’s closed, all-glass design envelopes the phone’s outside. The glass is slippery, but we found its folded size so easy to grasp that we didn’t feel the need to use the two-piece Aramid Fiber case that came in the box. This ease of handling is one of the things that struck us the most in our testing – while everything else about the Fold has a futuristic vibe, its narrow size took us back to a time when phones were easy to hold in one hand.
If you love big screens but are tired of juggling big phones, this is the biggest phone we’ve tested… and the smallest (recent phone) at the same time. It’s an idea that’s been more than 10 years in the making and, as Samsung likes to say, went through 1,000 different prototypes. It’s not a bad start, but there’s surely more innovation to come
RELEASE AND COST OF SAMSUNG GALAXY FOLD
The Samsung Galaxy Fold release date was staggered throughout September, and getting your hands on it wasn’t easy. It first came out in South Korea on September 6, and made its UK debut September 18, when it sold out immediately. There’s no word yet on pricing or availability for Australia, but you can register for updates at Samsung’s website.
The Galaxy Fold US release date was Friday, September 27, five months and one day after its original April 26 launch date. During this hiatus, Samsung tweaked the hardware, but the price remained the same: very high. The Fold costs $1,980 / £1,800 (€2,000), twice the price of an iPhone 11 Pro.
You can buy it through Samsung, local stores like Best Buy, or exclusive carrier partners: EE in the UK and AT&T in the US (it’s $66 a month for 30 months). Note: the UK has the 5G version, while the US is limited to 4G LTE.
As of 10th October 2019, the Samsung Galaxy Fold price in India starts at Rs. 1,64,999.
OUR REVIEW SAMSUNG GALAXY FOLD
The Galaxy Fold feels like a phone from the future, and yet from a practical perspective, it falls a bit short. It’s just cool to close the whole thing up when you’re ready for the walkway. But that doesn’t mean you should invest $2,000 of your own money.
Even if you put aside the lingering durability concerns around the Galaxy Fold, I find the overall design bulky and heavy, and the front display is too small. And while the cameras are solid, the iPhone 11 Pro has leaped ahead with its better HDR and night mode.
So as much as I appreciate what Samsung has accomplished with this first-generation foldable phone, We’re not even going to tell you ‘don’t buy this because it’s expensive’. That’s obvious. Even if you have the money, waiting until 2020 for an inevitable sequel is like a more logical choice.
