Samsung Electronics has today announced exclusive partnerships for Galaxy Fold with a range of retailers across Europe1. Participating partner pre-registration will open from 09.00am CET today for those looking to register interest and receive the latest updates on this highly-anticipated device.
Pre-orders for Galaxy Fold will go live on Samsung.com and participating partner websites from Friday 26th April ahead of its retail launch on Friday 3rd May in 15 European countries2, allowing customers to be amongst the first to purchase one of the most talked-about smartphones of the year.
Introducing a whole new smartphone category, the Galaxy Fold features the world’s first foldable 7.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex Display, which folds into a compact device when closed, fully protected with a Gorilla Glass 6 finish.
The Galaxy Fold’s App Continuity feature allows intuitive, seamless app transitions between the phone’s cover and the Infinity Flex main display, collaborating with Google to enable an ecosystem of apps that are simple and easy to use. The Galaxy Fold features Samsung’s largest ever smartphone screen, with a Multi-Active Window that allows users to easily multi-task across three open apps at once.
