[Poll Results!] Do you even care about the Galaxy Fold anymore?
Nobody will hold it against you if you don’t. Samsung botched the initial Galaxy Fold launch and arguably missed its “Apple moment.” It wasn’t just that the device wasn’t durable enough. The lack of information from Samsung after the April 26 launch was delayed did not inspire confidence.
There was never any question of the Galaxy Fold being discontinued. We knew that it would return. This was confirmed by Samsung’s mobile boss DJ Koh himself a few weeks ago. Earlier today, Samsung finally confirmed that it will relaunch the Galaxy Fold in September.
It has also made significant improvements to address the issues. The display’s protective layer has been tucked into the frame itself. The hinge gap has been reduced and metal reinforcements have been added underneath the display panel for added protection.
That being said, prospective customers will now approach the $2000 device with caution, more so than ever before. They have seen how delicate it was and may not immediately jump to purchase it come September. T-Mobile has already decided it’s not going to carry the Galaxy Fold anymore. Samsung will really have to go out of its way to convince customers that the device won’t face those issues again.
Is it too little, too late though? Do you even care about the Galaxy Fold anymore or did you stop caring about it a long time ago? Vote below and share your thoughts with us in the comments section.
Results: It seems the Galaxy Fold’s durability issues haven’t completely turned people off from the innovative device. 34 percent of voters say they still care about the Fold but won’t buy it for the price, while 21 percent believe it’s the most innovative mobile device in decades. 27 percent voters said they never cared for the Fold in the first place, while 17 percent of voters think Samsung’s foldable phone/tablet is doomed because of the botched launch. Of course, only time will tell if that is going to be the case.
