After encountering several technical hiccups, Samsung is finally rolling out its first-ever folding phone, the Galaxy Fold, worldwide.
The foldable phone has already arrived in several other countries, and Samsung Philippines told us that they’ll be launching the revolutionary device in the Philippines as well.
The Galaxy Fold was initially supposed to launch in the middle of the year, but technical problems with its screen and hinge assembly forced Samsung to postpone its worldwide debut.
The company has since fixed the issues and has started to roll out the new phone in select countries including Korea and the US.
“During the past several months, Samsung has been refining the Galaxy Fold to ensure it delivers the best possible experience. Not only did Samsung improve the Galaxy Fold’s design and construction, but also took the time to rethink the entire consumer journey,” Samsung said in a statement.
The phone has a 4.6-inch display in the front, and when unfolded, has a 7.3-inch Infinity Fold display inside.
It has dual cameras on the front and a triple-lens setup on the rear. It ships with 12GB RAM and 512GB internal storage.
There’s no local price for the phone as of yet, though in the US the phone retails for almost $2000 – $1,980 to be exact. That translates to roughly Php 101,300 without taxes or duties.
