The highly anticipated Galaxy Fold, a new foldable device creating a new mobile category, is clearly a hit with Nigerians. The first batch released has already sold out with pre-order sales. Samsung Nigeria is currently working on increasing stock levels to keep up with demand. Even after a delayed-release, there is clearly an appetite for this pioneering device. The next batch will be available from 29th November 2019.
Galaxy Fold features the world’s first 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display, which folds into a compact device with a cover display. Galaxy Fold offers a powerful new way to multitask, watch videos, play games, and more – bringing to life new experiences and possibilities years in the making.
“Samsung is proud to introduce a premium foldable device, that goes beyond the limitations of a traditional smartphone,” said David Suh, Managing Director at Samsung Electronics West Africa. “The pre-order sales are indicative of the public’s affinity for technology that transcends the norm.”
A Smartphone. A Tablet. Folded into One.
Galaxy Fold is in a category of its own. It delivers a new kind of mobile experience allowing users to do things they couldn’t do with an ordinary smartphone. “Users now have the best of both worlds; a compact device that unfolds to reveal Samsung’s largest-ever smartphone display,” says Adetunji Taiwo, Head, Information Technology and Mobile (IM) at Samsung Electronics West Africa. Galaxy Fold brings together material, engineering and display innovations, developed over eight years following the debut of Samsung’s first flexible display prototype in 2011.
