The Samsung Galaxy Fold is on the cusp of being readily available to purchase by customers. Today, T-Mobile announced that the next-gen Samsung folding phone will be available to purchase online beginning April 25 and in select T-Mobile stores April 26.
But if you want to preorder the phone already, you can do so through Samsung’s site beginning April 12. While announcing the Galaxy Fold availability, Samsung also revealed Galaxy S10 preorders will open some time in May.
T-Mobile is the first carrier to confirm support for the Galaxy Fold with more to follow. T-Mobile says the it will be come with a carbon fiber case and the impressive Galaxy Buds bundled in. That should make up for the enormous price tag of $1,980, which will prove to be its main hurdle in breaking out with customers.
This news is reaffirmed by another report from ZDNet that confirms Samsung Display has ramped up mass production of the foldable OLED panels for the Galaxy Fold that expand up to 7.3-inches.
Samsung originally set April 26 as the date for the device’s release and it looks like it’ll meet that deadline. More importantly, it’ll be competitors like the Huawei Mate X, another foldable phone, to market.
The standard version will be available in the U.S. but South Korea is getting the 5G version in May. It’s unclear if the U.S. will get that variant sooner or later.
