JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – October 11, 2019 – The highly anticipated Galaxy Fold, a new foldable device creating a new mobile category, is clearly a hit with South Africans.

Even after a delayed-release, there is clearly an appetite for this pioneering device. The Galaxy Fold officially goes on sale in South Africa on 18 October 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.

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.
