Samsung finally the Galaxy Fold.

Other countries shipping the Samsung Galaxy Fold after Korea include France, Germany, UK and US.

When the Galaxy Fold is closed, you can access your essentials on the cover display with one hand.

When opened, you can multitask, watch videos, play games, and more, on its 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display.

Samsung says the Galaxy Fold features improved design and construction.

During the past several months, Samsung has rethought the entire consumer journey.

Originally planned to be launched on 26 April in the US, Samsung delayed the launch for more than four months after reviewers reported problems which included cracked and bulging screens with their review units.

Details below from the press release.

First-of-its-Kind User Experience

The Galaxy Fold combines users’ favorite smartphone and tablet features to deliver a new kind of mobile device and a first-of-its-kind user experience – from a new form factor and materials to its unique foldable UX, versatile camera and premium performance.

“The category-defining Galaxy Fold is a device that defies the barriers of traditional smartphone design. Now, we’re excited to release this pioneering mobile technology, and allow consumers to experience it for themselves. Consumers have responded positively to larger screens, and the Galaxy Fold’s revolutionary form factor offers a bigger, more immersive screen without sacrificing portability. This is what we call innovation of new mobile experience in action,” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.

Samsung worked alongside partners to create an entirely new UX that will change the way we use our mobile devices and takes full advantage of the foldable design with its cover and main displays. As a result, the device opens up new possibilities for users.

The Galaxy Fold transforms how you capture, share, and edit mobile content.

When closed, you can shoot a quick video, and then simply open the device to watch it on a larger screen – with the App Continuity feature, the video seamlessly transitions from the cover display to the main display.

With Multi-Active Window, you can run multiple apps at once in real-time and effectively multitask: Edit footage, browse through your photo gallery for still shots, and read emails from friends and co-workers, all at the same time.
