It’s here. After literally years of rumors, leaks, and reports, Samsung’s announced its foldable smartphone. Samsung calls it the Galaxy Fold, and it looks pretty damn impressive.
Ready to learn more? Let’s dive right in.
The latest Galaxy Fold news
April 17, 2019 — The Galaxy Fold is already out of stock at Samsung and shipping is delayed at AT&T
If all the coverage of the Samsung Galaxy Fold has gotten you excited to buy one, then you’re in for some disappointment. That extra $2000 you have lying around is going to have to stay in your pocket a little longer because Samsung has already sold out of the Fold online. Even those who pre-registered are receiving emails saying that the Galaxy Fold is currently out of stock “due to overwhelming demand.”
No worries though, you’re still on the list, you’re just going to have to wait until Samsung can re-stock before buying. There is no telling how many Fold devices Samsung made or sold in this first batch, but it only took hours for all colors to be sold out. Hopefully, Samsung is ramping up production to keep up with demand. However, if you’re looking to get your hands on one, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for when it’s back in stock, because the second batch will surely sell out just as quickly as the first one.
While pre-orders for the Galaxy Fold may have stopped at Samsung for the time being, you can still pre-order through AT&T. Unfortunately, even though you can still place a pre-order the shipping date has been pushed back from April 25 to June 3.
April 15, 2019 — Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Fold have begun at AT&T
Good news for AT&T customers looking to get their hands on the new Samsung Galaxy Fold, pre-orders for Samsung’s first ever foldable phone have begun today. The Galaxy Fold is available in either Space Silver or Cosmos Black with an expected delivery date of April 25. While $2000 makes the Galaxy Fold a pretty pricey phone, AT&T customers can get it for $66 a month with eligible service by using AT&T Next.
In order to pre-order one for yourself, all you have to do is go to att.com/galaxyfold or visit an AT&T store. If you’d rather wait to get a look at it before purchasing, the Galaxy Fold is expected in stores beginning on April 26.
If you’re a T-Mobile customer or would rather buy from Samsung directly, then you might just be in luck. The pre-order page is currently live on Samsung’s site, but so far it’s been very glitchy with some color options completely breaking it. However, if you want to be among the first to get your hands on the phone, it may be worth a shot. It’s important to note, that you will only be able to complete the purchase if you pre-registered previously, because it checks for your email in the database upon checkout.
## April 12, 2019 — You can now reserve the Samsung Galaxy Fold for AT&T and T-Mobile
As expected, Samsung has officially opened up reservations for the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
Similar to when registrations opened for the Galaxy S10 earlier this year, you’re not actually putting any money down for the Galaxy Fold right now. Instead, you’re essentially reserving a spot in line to be among the first people to buy it when pre-orders open on April 25.
When you make your reservation, you’ll need to enter your name, email, ZIP code, and which carrier you want the phone on.
