Optus is offering Samsung's Galaxy Fold, the foldable smartphone which was released recently, on a plan on its 4G network.

In a statement, the telco said the device would be available on a three-year My Plan Plus for $150 a month ($105 for the plan and $45 for the phone), with 200GB of data. This puts the minimum plan cost at $5400.

Samsung delayed the public launch of the device, which costs about $2700, after issues surfaced following distribution to select media outlets in the US in April.

Early in July, Samsung chief executive D.J. Koh admitted he was to blame for the debacle, telling a media group in Seoul that he had pushed the project through.

Towards the end of July, the company said it had sorted out the issues and would be releasing it sometime in September.

Optus head of Product, Shawn Van Graan, said, “Optus is thrilled to be offering Samsung’s latest exciting device yet on super value Optus plans. Galaxy Fold is both a smartphone and a tablet with an immersive screen that folds and slips easily into your pocket.

“The handset offers an array of exciting state-of-the-art and ground-breaking technologies enabling users to multi-task, watch videos, play games and more, that we have not experienced in any handset to date.

“To give customers extra eye watering value, we are offering three months free plan fees on new selected mobile plans for a limited time, including with the Samsung Galaxy Fold.

"With our award-winning plans, we offer customers the ability to share data between eligible services on the same bill and the option of enjoying content such as Optus Sport on Samsung’s stunning 7.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex Display.”

The Galaxy Fold will be available for order in-store only. Full details of the Optus offer are here.
