AT&T is now taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
The service provider will allow you to pay the full $1979.99 or
split the price of the phone into 30 payments of $66.00. The
official retail launch date for the Samsung Galaxy Fold is April
26, but the website claims that those who pre-order the phone will
be able to have it delivered as early as April 25.
The price of the Samsung Galaxy Fold may seem a bit outrageous,
but the device does come with a Snapdragon 855, 12GB of RAM, 512GB
of storage, a total of 6 cameras, a 4.6-inch display on the outside
of the device and of course the 7.3-inc foldable display on the
side. The price of the phone reflects the added cost of the
flexible display and added battery capacity, but we should see
foldable smartphone pricing drop over the next year or two as the
technology becomes cheaper to manufacture.
It’s still unclear how popular the Samsung Galaxy Fold or
other foldable smartphones will be. At their current prices, only
select smartphone enthusiasts will be buying these phones, but we
can see them becoming a lot more popular if Samsung and other
manufacturers can get the price below the $1,500 mark.
