Samsung Galaxy Fold release set for September
The Samsung Galaxy Fold was a smartphone that was highly anticipated and it was reportedly in the works for years. The first rumors surrounding the foldable smartphone that can grow into a tablet when unfolded surfaced a few years back and ever since everyone expected Samsung to finally unveil the handset. This year, it actually happened and it seemed like a dream come true. That is until people started noticing that something was wrong with the handset and the foldable phone was really not that resistant as it should have been in order to function normally.
The company delayed the release of the foldable smartphone which costs a small fortune and promised to address all the known issues it presented. First of all, the protective layer that users thought was removable so they removed it, causing the smartphone’s screen to easily crack, was reportedly changed with a new one which is now almost impossible to remove. Samsung also added new protection caps that are now there to strengthen the top and bottom of the hinge area and metal reinforcements beneath the Infinity Flex Display. The company also reduced the airgap between the handset’s body and hinge to make it more resistant.
Even though the foldable smartphone should have been on the market for quite a while now and it actually sold out on the first day on which preorders were available, the $2,000 Samsung Galaxy Fold still didn’t reach any of the customers. According to Samsung’s latest announcement, it will finally hit the stores sometime in September. We don’t have an exact date, but at least we now have a timeframe in which we could see the Samsung Galaxy Fold arrive in stores.
Rumor has it that Samsung will not stop at the Samsung Galaxy Fold, in spite of all the trouble it caused. The company is reportedly working on two new foldable smartphones which will probably arrive in 2020. These will probably have the best features available at the time of their launch too. Knowing their price range, the best is what everyone expects of them, and hopefully, there will be no further delays.
