First reported to cost around $1,700 at launch, we now know that the Galaxy Fold, Samsung’s highly-anticipated foldable device, costs just under $2,000. At $1,980 to be exact, it’s three OnePlus 6T phones ($549) and still some change left over.
Samsung is not shy in calling this a luxury device and knows that it won’t be for everyone. However, Samsung did share a few cool tricks the device can accomplish. For example, if you’re browsing at something on the outside display, you can flip open the device and browse the same content on the larger display.
When folded, you have a 4.6″ HD+ Super AMOLED cover display, and when unfolded, you have a 7.3″ (QXGA) Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex display to use as a tablet. It also has six cameras, 512GB storage (UFS 3.0), 12GB RAM, a 7nm 64-bit octa-core processor, side-mounted fingerprint reader, and 4,380mAh dual battery system (with fast wired and wireless charging).
The question is, are you going to buy it when it launches on April 26?
