The Samsung Galaxy Fold has a 5G variant that was just certified by the FCC. This is according to a leaked filing obtained by My Smart Price. The device was filed back on April 25 and the certification from an EMC report was approved on June 3.
The EMC (Electromagnetic compatibility) test ensures the device doesn’t emit too much electromagnetic energy to cause or receive interference to/from other devices.
The 4G variant of Galaxy Fold supports dual-SIM via physical nanoSIM and eSIM, while the 5G variant uses a single SIM slot. At the same time, the 5G model will use a smaller 4,235 mAh battery than the 4G variant of 4,380 mAh. Both variants are identical except for battery capacity and connection differences.
Samsung’s Galaxy Fold voluntarily delayed back in April, when the initial trial unit unexpectedly failed. Folding displays are too fragile, and delays are designed to ensure a more durable design and then reach the public.
The Samsung Display Vice President announced last week that the delay will soon end. Although these issues seem to have “resolved, and Galaxy Fold is ready to go public,” there is still no specific release date or timeline.
