Samsung's Galaxy Fold will be limited edition

The Samsung Galaxy Fold will be limited edition.

The new foldable smart phone was debuted at Samsung's S10 launch recently, and although fans didn't get to see as much of the phone as they may have liked, it has now been revealed the phone will get its own standalone launch in early April.

Samsung told The Verge that the event will be a "full press" affair with proper hands-on opportunities and an atmosphere befitting a high-end device.

However, the company also revealed that with the hefty £1,800 price tag, the Galaxy Fold will be a lot rarer in comparison to the new S10, with Samsung bringing in "less supply" of the new model at launch.

In a statement to The Verge, they said: "We'll have less supply than we would of the S10 at launch, and also how it goes to market is really important to us. This is a super premium device, and we want to make sure it has a concierge-like service and experience, so it's not going to be on display in all stores. You're not going to see it on the stands, we want to make sure it's a very personal experience. There will be quite intensive aftercare that goes with it as well."

The phone is set to launch on April 26, with the press event taking place in early April, just a few weeks ahead of its global launch.
