The foldable is currently available for booking via Samsung’s official website and will go on sale for the first time on November 8. Note that this is the 4G variant of the Galaxy Fold, unlike the one sold in South Korea which supported 5G.
The Galaxy Fold 4G will be available in just one variant featuring 12GB RAM and 512GB storage in two color options: Cosmos Black and Space Silver. The foldable will go on sale at 10 AM on November 8 via Samsung’s official website.
Galaxy Fold’s China launch timing is pretty interesting given that its rival, the Huawei Mate X will finally go on sale in the same market on November 15.
The Mate X 5G will come in a single variant of 8GB RAM and 512GB ROM for 16,999 yuan (~$2403), making it slightly more expensive than the Fold. However, note that the Huawei foldable comes with 5G support and that could be a big differentiator in the Chinese market in the coming weeks.
Notably, Samsung is rumored to release the 5G variant of the Galaxy Fold, likely to be called as the W20 5G, in the coming weeks. With 5G onboard, it could be slightly more expensive than the 4G version, bringing it quite close to Mate X’s retail price tag.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold 4G comes with an inward folding design that comes with a 4.6-inch cover display and a 7.3-inch secondary dynamic AMOLED foldable display.
Inside, the phone features the Snapdragon 855 processor with a large 4380mAh battery. There are a total of six cameras on board, a triple camera setup at the back (16MP, f/2.2 ultra-wide sensor with a 12MP, f/1.5-2.4 sensor and a 12MP, f/2.4 telephoto sensor), a 10MP selfie shooter on the cover display and a 10MP and 8MP sensors placed on the foldable display.
