Launch of the foldable Galaxy Fold scheduled to September
The mobile phone is available from then on in a limited number of markets. It is not known what those are. “Details about availability are communicated the closer we get to the launch,” said Samsung.
Samsung has redesigned the phone from the beginning. The first version of the Galaxy Fold was taken off the market before the start of the sale. Reviewers discovered that test specimens showed cracks in the folding screen. One display stopped, and when a subject touched the screen with a fingernail, permanent damage occurred.
The Galaxy Fold must be the flagship of Samsung. The device costs more than $2200. In 2016, Samsung had to deal with problems with the launch of the Galaxy Note 7. Samsung had to take the device off the market within a few weeks because the battery could catch fire.
