The Galaxy Fold Foldable Phone has been on the market for long enough to think that availability won’t expand into any new regions, but that’s not true. Brazil is the latest country to join the foldable smartphone/tablet craze.

Samsung has officially confirmed that the Galaxy Fold Foldable Phone will go on sale in Brazil on January 22, and prospective buyers can pre-register for the device beginning today, January 17.

Fans of the brand will be able to test the Galaxy Fold first-hand at Samsung’s physical stores beginning today. Once the device goes on sale on January 22, it will be available exclusively in Cosmos Black.

The Galaxy Fold will be available for purchase online for the whopping price of R$ 12,999, or roughly $3,107. That’s nearly a $1,000 premium over the Galaxy Fold’s launch price in most other markets. It’s nearly a 50% price hike for a device that already carries a luxurious price tag.

Unsurprisingly, specifications remain the same as before. The Galaxy Fold in Brazil has a 7.3-inch foldable Dynamic AMOLED display with a resolution of 2,152 by 1,536, and a 4.6-inch cover display with a pixel count of 1,280 by 720.

The device has a total of six cameras, a Snapdragon 855 chipset, 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage, and has a combined battery capacity of 4,380mAh.

The smartphone runs Android 9 out of the box and there hasn’t been any new information regarding Samsung’s progress towards updating the foldable to Android 10. More
