Samsung has made its pre-registration page for its first ever flexible device, the Galaxy Fold, live in the US and UK. It enables potential buyers to submit their contact details in order to receive instructions as to how to order this phone. A new report indicates that the Fold will cost the same as it did prior to its failed launch.

Samsung has made its Galaxy Fold "sign-up" page live again in the US and the UK. It contains a link (in the upper right corner) that enables an interested consumer to put their names down to buy a unit of this flexible-display device when it becomes available. This move follows the institution of similar pre-registration programs in China and South Korea.

As with those forms, the OEM advises these potential buyers be aware that supplies of the device will be extremely limited before applying to it. Despite this, the pre-existing Asian sign-ups for the Galaxy Fold have reportedly proved very popular already. 

Furthermore, the US carrier AT&T has put its own page for this device back up, having suspended it when Samsung was obliged to cancel its original release date earlier in 2019. Its content confirms that the phone will also cost the same as it did prior to this incident.

This decision clashes prior leaks that suggested Samsung would make a second Galaxy Fold variant available with half the internal storage found in the original configuration (512GB). This version may be sold for a new, somewhat reduced, price. However, this report will be ultimately confirmed or denied at the foldable phone's eventual official release on September 6, 2019.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
