We might finally know the official name of Samsung’s first foldable smartphone

We might finally know the official name of Samsung’s first foldable smartphone We’ve been calling Samsung’s first foldable smartphone the Galaxy F most of the time, but that’s not going to be the commercial name of the product, a leaker just said. The phone will be called Galaxy Fold, a moniker we’ve seen thrown around in previous rumors about the phone. Samsung’s foldable phone was in the making for a quite a few years, as the company kept demoing foldable displays at trade shows, without following through with a product launch.

Samsung ' s first foldable phone costs ,980 and goes on sale April 26. Here is the announcement at the company's event in San Francisco. Samsung reveals

If you did register beginning April 12, you'll receive instructions for how to start the private preorder process on Monday, April 15, and it's possible that there will be more stock in select stores by April 26, the phone's official sale date.

Samsung can’t wait for foldable iPhones and Pixel phones

Samsung can’t wait for foldable iPhones and Pixel phones The Galaxy Fold is hardly the best looking foldable smartphone of the first wave of foldable devices that were just unveiled, but that doesn’t mean Samsung doesn’t have a significant advantage over Huawei. The Korean giant develops its own smartphone display tech, whereas Huawei has to buy it from other suppliers. And Samsung Display happens to be the market leader of OLED smartphone screens. Therefore, it’s not surprising to hear that Samsung is ready to support foldable iPhone and Pixel phones, as it has supplied foldable screen samples to both Apple and Google.

At its Galaxy Unpacked 2019 event, Samsung showed off its first foldable phone . Starting at ,980, the phone will be available in the US starting in April.

Samsung ' s first phone with a foldable screen, the Galaxy Fold , is nearly here. How can you buy the Galaxy Fold ? Starting April 12, you can place a reservation for the Galaxy Fold if you register to receive more information from Samsung .

We're not shocked this happened. Samsung warned buyers that supplies would be limited. It's likely, though, that not everyone who reserved a phone will actually buy one. A reservation doesn't oblige you to make a purchase. The Fold officially goes on sale April 26 at select stores -- scroll down for more details.

The Galaxy Fold is a hybrid phone/tablet device that has two screens, a smaller display on the front that looks like a typical smartphone, and another screen on the inside of the phone that's folded in half and opens up to a 7.3-inch display. It's a crazy idea that's going to see competition from device makers like Huawei and Motorola.

Starting April 12, interested buyers could place a reservation for the Galaxy Fold to receive more information from Samsung about the "private preorder" on Monday, April 15.

Samsung released a new video to prove how durable the Galaxy Fold is

Samsung released a new video to prove how durable the Galaxy Fold is With companies like Apple and Samsung releasing new flagship devices every year on a consistent schedule, we've grown somewhat spoiled. Back in the day, new phone releases engendered a lot of excitement as we saw significant advances in performance, mobile photography, and more. These days, though, it's become a lot more challenging for smartphone manufacturers to impress consumers. As a prime example, Apple's iPhone lineup last year didn't

If you successfully registered, you should have received an email with more information, like your place in line.

The Fold will be on display and available to buy in the US starting April 26 in select AT&T, T-Mobile, Best Buy and Samsung Experience Stores.

Will there be any bundled deals?

T-Mobile announced that it will give Galaxy Fold buyers a pair of wireless Galaxy Buds earbuds and a carbon fiber case for free.

Sales begin online April 25 at 9 p.m. PT and in select T-Mobile stores April 26. There's only one color, Space Silver. T-Mobile suggests you check store availability before you hop in the car.

How much does the Galaxy Fold cost again?

It's not cheap. The Galaxy Fold will cost $1,980 for 512GB of storage and 12GB of RAM. There will be an LTE model and a 5G variant, with the latter presumably costing more than the base model. UK and Australian prices were not announced, but the US price converts to about £1,500 or AU$2,800.

What about colors?

Globally, the Galaxy Fold will come in Cosmo Black, Space Silver, Astro Blue and Martian Green. And depending on the color you purchase, you can customize the color of the hinge. Some carriers and stores may limit their color options.
