Samsung Galaxy Fold Will Be Arriving in the Philippines Soon


Good news to those who have been hoping to get their hands on a Samsung-made foldable smartphone since its initial launch earlier this year. This is because Samsung Philippines has just confirmed that the Galaxy Fold, one of the first foldable smartphones ever launched to the world, is also making its way to the local market real "soon". This announcement followed after the successful launch of the device last month where it sold out in a number of countries.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold was supposed to first hit worldwide markets in April of this year but was delayed until September due to some technical issues with the device that were encountered by early reviewers. Samsung recalled the devices and promised to fix and optimize everything about this Fold.

In a press release, it says "During the past several months, Samsung has been refining the Galaxy Fold to ensure it delivers the best possible experience. Not only did Samsung improve the Galaxy Fold's design and construction, but also took the time to rethink the entire consumer journey."

Though we now know that the Galaxy Fold will have its own Philippine release soon, and that only a limited quantity will be made available nationwide, nothing more has been revealed by Samsung Philippines yet. So for more details such as its exact release date, pre-order promos (if any), and of course official pricing, we'll need to wait a little longer.

Being the very first foldable smartphone from Samsung and sporting top of the line specs, features, design, and unprecedented innovation, the Galaxy Fold does not come cheap. In the US, it is priced at $1,980 or about Php101,000 when converted to our currency. Stay tuned for more details.
