The Samsung Galaxy Fold release date set for September 6, 2019 has finally arrived! However, the device initially arrives in South Korea, but this gives us a look at the price and detailed specifications of the device. In addition, it was initially announced that this long-awaited device will arrive first in the US. In April not less, but due to screen defects revealed by smartphone samples, the launch was delayed.
One of the biggest changes with the improved Galaxy Fold is with the protective film, which people mistakenly removed in the previous version. The movie now goes under the bezels so you can’t see the edge. Samsung also added layers of metal under the screen to make it feel stronger, and the hinge, in general, feels more solid.
Samsung Electronics Galaxy Fold price is set at approximately $ 1,980 (KRW 2,398)
Samsung Galaxy Fold comes with 5G support, of course, and will have LTE-enabled versions for a selection of countries that include France, Germany, Britain and the US. UU. But, release dates are still unknown to any of these. Samsung announced this latest folding device as an attempt to infuse the market saturated innovation and expanded functionality.
This September date was confirmed in July, when the company also revealed that it was making improvements to the problems detected by the first revisions, including the strengthening of the hinges. In addition, Samsung will also cover 70% of the cost of screen repair once within a year after purchase, if the need arises for any user.
The executive director of the Computer Electronics and Mobile Communications Division of Samsung Electronics, RJ KOh, said:
“Consumers have responded positively to larger screens, and the revolutionary form factor of the Galaxy Fold offers a larger and more immersive screen without sacrificing portability.”
As this device hits the market, September will also see the dawn of another folding smartphone, this time developed by Huawei Technologies. The company announced its plans last month and set the date for September. However, Huawei would also have launched its model before, but they faced their own complications, mainly with the US commercial blacklist as part of the ongoing fight of the telephone war. Galaxy Fold is expected to increase the number of 5G subscribers and expand the market in South Korea, according to an estimate by SK Telecom, its largest mobile operator. They also promised discounts, insurance plans and various amenities for users of the new folding smartphone.
