[Video] The Samsung Galaxy Fold is thick, but awesome
Samsung finally allowed people to actually hold and use the Galaxy Fold. Our friends over at Pocketnow were lucky enough to be invited to try out this exciting device. Like most people who have had the opportunity to hold the device, Jaime thought it was very cool. He talked about how the Galaxy Fold doesn’t feel like a phone at all. You can really feel why this is a brand new product category. App Continuity worked well and typing is very spacious and easy with the device unfolded.
The Galaxy Fold is notoriously expensive at $1,980 and pre-orders included carrier options for only AT&T and T-Mobile. However, Droid-Life discovered FCC filings that show the device is equipped to work on Verizon and Sprint as well. We’re not sure why Samsung has limited it to only two carriers in the US. Watch the full video below to see the Galaxy Fold in action, and if you’re interested, Jaime unboxed the phone on Instagram.
