Samsung Galaxy Fold is nearly here. Watch these review videos

SALT LAKE CITY — Multiple reviews have begun to surface online about the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the new foldable phone from Samsung.

Back in September 2018, Samsung unveiled its plan to release a foldable device, according to my report for the Deseret News.

The rumors ignited speculation about how it would be used. Earlier this year, Samsung unveiled the foldable phone — which costs a pretty $1,980 and begins shipping on April 26 — and teased that it will be a limited item, which I wrote about for the Deseret News. Samsung even teased the device in its own video.

But what is a foldable, touch-screen phone really like? I leave it to Dieter Bohn of The Verge: “Here’s the TL;DR most of you are waiting for: it feels much more stable and polished than I expected going in, but there is still some work to be done on the software. OK, here’s what you are really waiting for: you can see (and feel) the crease on the folding screen, but it’s really not that noticeable and perhaps worth the trade-off of having a big screen that you can fold up.”

Need more? Well, The Verge shared a video of their experience with the phone, which you can watch below.

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is a $1980 folding phone, but you should think of it more as a tablet. In the very first real hands-on video, Dieter Bohn explains what this Android device is all about.

But The Verge wasn’t the only tech news website to review the phone. Engadget similarly reviewed the foldable device, calling it “satisfying despite the crease.”

Watch that review video below.

The Galaxy Fold will hit stores on April 26 for $1,980. It will be available in limited supplies.
