It was reported last week that the Galaxy Fold release date might be September 6, at least in South Korea. Samsung had previously confirmed that it would be launching the device in September. The company today announced that customers in South Korea will finally be able to purchase the Galaxy Fold starting tomorrow, September 6.
Samsung has also confirmed that it will soon be making the handset available in other markets across the globe. You can expect it to arrive in markets across Europe and the United States before the end of this month.
Galaxy Fold goes on sale starting tomorrow
The first foldable smartphone from Samsung features a 4.6-inch HD+ cover display in addition to a 7.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED Infinity Flex Display on the inside. It’s powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor with 12GB RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.0 storage. It has a total of six cameras, a 4,380mAh battery on the LTE variant and runs Android 9 Pie out of the box.
Much has already been said and written about the Galaxy Fold. We even did a review of the first iteration before Samsung decided to delay the launch as it became obvious that more work as needed. It’s putting the Galaxy Fold on the market again over five months later with significant changes that improve the device’s durability.
The Galaxy Fold will be available for purchase in South Korea from tomorrow in Cosmos Black and Space Silver. It will be released in countries like Germany, France, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United States soon as well. A 5G variant will be offered in select countries as well.
Samsung will offer a specialized customer care service to Galaxy Fold owners which will include one-on-one access to Samsung experts and a 24/7 support hub that’s accessible online and over the phone. The customer service plans will vary by market and Samsung’s regional divisions will elaborate more on that individually.
