Samsung will finally ship its first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, starting on April 26.
The Galaxy Fold is the most expensive smartphone Samsung has made. It starts at $1,980.
The phone features many technological innovations, but carries a lot of risk for customers as well.

Samsung’s $2,000 foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, has been turning heads since its unveiling in February.
Foldable phones are the hottest phone trend in 2019, which perhaps isn’t too surprising. Before smartphones became mainstream in the late 2000s, foldable “clamshell” phones like the Motorola Razr dominated the marketplace with their compact designs.
The Galaxy Fold is a premium throwback to that flip-phone era: You can use the Galaxy Fold’s 4.7-inch display with one hand, but the phone can open up into a 7.3-inch tablet-like display.
Having a new smartphone design, after over a decade of the same rounded rectangles over and over again, is obviously exciting. But buying the Galaxy Fold when it becomes available in select regions on April 26 is a risky prospect.
