Galaxy Fold official in Italy: arrives in December at more than 2000 euros

The Galaxy Fold also arrives in Italy from December 16 at a price of 2050 euros. Here are the features and where to buy it

Almost a year after the official presentation, the Galaxy Fold (new reinforced version) also arrives in Italy. Samsung has announced what everyone was waiting for: the first foldable phone of the South Korean company will be available in stores from December 16 at a price of 2050 euros, while pre-orders will be opened on November 13. A price certainly not within the reach of all, but as happens with all innovative devices is logical that the cost is initially a bit 'higher.

The Galaxy Fold that arrives in Italy is the new version made by Samsung to make the device (almost) indestructible. Initially, the smartphone was supposed to hit the market in April 2019, but due to the problems encountered by testers, the launch date has been postponed to allow Samsung to correct some technical errors. The Galaxy Fold 2.0 has a stronger hinge, the screen protector is included inside the shell and there is no longer any danger of dust damaging the internal components. Owners of the smartphone will also have a dedicated call center with a toll-free number that will answer 7 days a week, around the clock and will always be ready to help.

The characteristics of the Galaxy Fold

The work done by Samsung in recent months only concerns the resistance of the device, for the rest of the features have remained the same as in February. The smartphone mounts a Snapdragon 855 with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of internal storage. The peculiarity of the device is the flexible screen. The Galaxy Fold closes and opens like a book, with the hinge that "binds" the two parts of the screen. Fully open, the smartphone has a 7.3-inch display, while once closed you can use the foreign 4.6-inch screen.

The photographic compartment is composed of six cameras. At the back we find a triple module with 12-megapixel main camera, 16-megapixel wide-angle and 12-megapixel telephoto. At the front of the screen is a 10-megapixel selfie camera and an 8-megapixel sensor to capture depth. Finally, an additional 10-megapixel selfie camera has been added in the same part where the outer screen is.

The battery is 4380mAh and should ensure you get through the day. The Galaxy Fold arrives in Italy in the 4G version with support for two SIM cards, with the second being an eSIM.

Galaxy Fold, the accessories plus

For the Galaxy Fold Samsung has thought of an ad hoc customer care service. Those who will buy the foldable smartphone can rely on a call center available seven days a week, around the clock and Samsung care plus insurance for a year.

How much does it cost and when does the Galaxy Fold arrive

The launch price of the Galaxy Fold is 2050 euros. The smartphone can be pre-ordered from November 13, while it will be available for purchase from December 16. The copies available in Italy will not be many, on the other hand the South Korean company is already working on the Galaxy Fold 2 that will see the light in the early months of next year.
