T-Mobile confirms the Galaxy Fold release for April 26
Samsung confirmed on February 20 that it will release the Galaxy Fold on April 26, at least in the United States. T-Mobile, the country’s third-largest mobile carrier, has reconfirmed that release date. Customers on Magenta will indeed be able to get a Galaxy Fold from T-Mobile come April 26.
Samsung has previously confirmed US pricing for the handset as well. The Galaxy Fold will start at $1,980 in the United States. It’s certainly not a cheap device by any stretch of the imagination. However, the price tag does appear to make sense when you truly consider what you’re getting for your money.
Galaxy Fold release on T-Mobile confirmed
T-Mobile has confirmed that the Galaxy Fold will be available online starting 9 PM PT on April 25 and from select stores the following day. The device will connect to T-Mobile’s 600MHz Extended Range LTE which it claims provides better coverage in buildings and rural areas.
The carrier hasn’t confirmed pricing details for this device but they should arrive in the near future. It recommends that customers go online starting April 25 to purchase a Galaxy Fold or call their local T-Mobile stores to check availability. T-Mobile will sell the Galaxy Fold in Space Silver. Customers will receive a carbon fiber case and a pair of Galaxy Buds for free.
As previously reported, AT&T and T-Mobile might be the only carriers that sell the Galaxy Fold in the United States. Samsung would sell the device unlocked as well for those will to pay almost $2,000 outright for the device. Customers in Europe won’t have to wait much longer after that. Samsung opens pre-orders for the Galaxy Fold in Europe on April 26. It will release the handset in 15 European markets on May 3.
