Samsung says Galaxy Fold preorders fully booked in the US

Samsung started preorders for the Galaxy Fold in the US but closed it due to limited supplies and high demand for the first Samsung foldable device.

Samsung started accepting reservations for advance orders of its Galaxy Fold in the US on Friday but stopped a day later when the list filled up.

"The Galaxy Fold reservation list is full," Samsung said on its U.S. website, without elaborating on how many phones were available. "Due to high demand, we are unable to accept any more preorder reservations. We will alert you when Galaxy Fold is available."

The tech giant has expressed hope that the foldable device and its new smartphone strategy will boost sales in the high-end segment in the face of toughening global competition and the saturated smartphone demand.

And on April 26th, you can visit select AT&T, T-Mobile, Best Buy or Samsung Experience Stores to purchase the Galaxy Fold.

The company will also open preorder reservations for the foldable phone in Europe on April 26, with an official release date set for May 3.

Galaxy Fold will be launched in a 5G-only model in South Korea in mid-May, and it is expected to cost around 2.4 million won ($2,100), according to industry officials.

Samsung said earlier it aims to sell over 1 million foldable devices in the global market this year.
