The pre-order period for Samsung Galaxy Fold has finally started in the Philippines. The category-defining device is now available (beginning November 18, 2019) through Globe Telecom’s and Smart Communications’ postpaid offers until December 1, 2019.
Each purchase of the foldable device within the period comes with Galaxy Buds partnered with exclusive premier services like the Samsung Concierge and Care+. Samsung Concierge provides access to specialized customer care programs including a 24/7 dedicated hotline, free pick-up and delivery assistance, and service express lanes, among others. Users can directly consult with the company’s tech experts for any queries. On the other hand, Samsung Care+ is a hassle-free yearlong program that assists Galaxy Fold users for any emergency concern. It also includes repair coverage for a year.
Samsung’s Galaxy Fold has a unique design and foldable form factor that brings about a brand-new user experience with two options for screen size in one device. When closed, all essential apps can be comfortably accessed with just a hand. Once it is opened, the 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display offers a truly immersive viewing experience, allowing the user to get lost in videos on a screen that is bigger—unbelievably fitting in your pocket.
Two other additional features are the App Continuity and Multi-Active Window, which facilitate maximum productivity and ease of use, especially when switching between the two displays of the Galaxy Fold.
The App Continuity facilitates switching from using an app on the cover display to using it on the main display seamlessly. For instance, you can check your email when the device is folded but when it is opened to reply to a message, a new version of the email app (optimized for the expansive screen) will automatically open, facilitating a more comfortable view of the full content of the email message. Following the uninterrupted screen transition, emails can be responded to using the keyboard with its optimized screen placement.
The Multi-Active Window enables users to take advantage of the increased screen real estate of the main display. Now, users can open multiple apps simultaneously and easily use them at the same time, thanks to an optimized UX for next-level multitasking. While reading an email, drag and drop the Calendar as well as Google Maps from the device’s side panel into the Multi-active Window to work in three windows simultaneously and coordinate a meeting quickly and efficiently. Each app window can be easily resized in order to see more or less as desired.
Meanwhile, the device’s pro-level Hexa-lens camera system takes the photo- and video-recording experience to a whole new level. It is equipped with the latest features such as Scene Optimizer, Shot Suggestions, and Flaw Detection for crisp and clear images. Users can also take advantage of the different modes such as Food, Panorama, Pro, Live, Super Slow-mo, Hyperlapse, and Super Steady.
