Samsung will be taking pre-orders for the Galaxy Fold smartphone starting next week in the US. However, the company is also bringing its first foldable smartphone to other markets as well. Earlier today, Samsung has officially confirmed to launch the Galaxy Fold smartphone in China on April 16th. Unlike in the US, we don’t think the Galaxy S10 5G will be available in the country anytime soon.
Just like Apple, Samsung is facing heat from local brands like Huawei in the premium segment. Even the Galaxy Fold will be competing with the Huawei’s Mate X foldable smartphone. While the Huawei Mate X sports an out-folding design, the Galaxy Fold comes with an in-folding design. Both the foldable smartphones will be available in 5G variants. However, Samsung might only launch the 4G LTE variant as of now.
