Following the successful launch of the Samsung Galaxy Fold last month, Filipino consumers get to unfold it as it hits the Philippines soon.
Samsung has been refining the Galaxy Fold during the past several months. They aim to ensure it delivers the best possible experience to users. Not only did Samsung improve the Galaxy Fold’s design and construction, but also took the time to rethink the entire consumer journey.
“The category-defining Galaxy Fold is a device that defies the barriers of traditional smartphone design. Now, we’re excited to release this pioneering mobile technology, and allow consumers to experience it for themselves,”said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics.
“Consumers have responded positively to larger screens, and the Galaxy Fold’s revolutionary form factor offers a bigger, more immersive screen without sacrificing portability. This is what we call innovation of new mobile experience in action.”Koh added.
First-of-its-Kind User Experience
The Galaxy Fold combines smartphone and tablet features to deliver a new kind of device. The Fold transforms how users capture, share, and edit mobile content. When closed, you can shoot a quick video, then simply open the device to watch it on a larger screen. This is done thanks to Samsung’s App Continuity. It’s where the video seamlessly transitions from the cover display to the main display.
Another feature is Multi-Active Window. With it, you can run multiple apps at once in real-time and effectively multitask. You can edit footage, browse through the photo gallery, and read emails all at the same time.
It also comes with a 5G option. Users in select markets can take full advantage of their carriers’ fastest speeds. Every Galaxy Fold also comes with exclusive access to specialized customer care services. This includes one-on-one access to Samsung experts, and a 24/7 support hub online or over the phone.
