The Samsung Galaxy Fold has been so popular in Singapore that it took weeks to get more stock in – but now avid foldables fans can now get their hands on the popular device once again.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold is the company's flagship foldable device and sold out on its launch day back on September 18..

Samsung says thousands of people registered their interest on purchasing a device, and Samsung has been busy trying to meet all of those orders.

"Consumers in Singapore have responded very positively to the category-defining Galaxy Fold and since its launch last month, we have been working hard to fulfil consumer demand," says Samsung Electronics Singapore vice president of IT and mobile, Sarah Chua.

"We are excited to bring the Galaxy Fold to more consumers through additional touch points across Singapore, where they can experience the device's pioneering and innovative features."

Now Samsung Experience stores and selected local telecommunications stores (namely, M1, Singtel and StarHub) will stock the device in store or online.

The Galaxy Fold in LTE variant is available at the recommended retail price of $3,088, in two colour variants: Cosmos Black and Space Silver.

Samsung Singapore is also offering a ‘premier service' for those who purchase the Galaxy Fold LTE.

The premium customer care program delivers a suite of service offerings, such as a 24-hour Concierge Support via Samsung Members app; Door-to-Door pick-up and delivery service for device repair (up to two times only); and a one-time screen replacement or repair upon payment of a deductible of $200.

The Galaxy Fold Premier Service is valid for 12 months from the date of purchase of the new device, Samsung says.

Galaxy Fold in LTE variant customers can also enjoy additional complimentary customer service benefits, such as 30-day 1-for-1 exchange for functional defects, data transfer assistance, diagnostic checks, one-time 1-to-1 in-box accessories exchange, and dedicated and priority queue at authorised Samsung Customer Service Centres at VivoCity and Westgate.
