The Galaxy Fold relaunch may happen earlier than expected. Korean news outlet Yonhap News claims that the troubled foldable smartphone is being readied for release in South Korea on September 6. Notably, the IFA 2019 trade show in Berlin also kicks off on the same day.

Galaxy Fold release date

Samsung has already confirmed that it’s going to launch the Galaxy Fold in September but hasn’t yet unveiled the exact release date. While some Korean news outlets previously suggested a release sometime in the third week of September, a newer one now claims otherwise. It says that the Galaxy Fold will hit the South Korean market on September 6.

Samsung is said to be initially producing between 20,000 to 30,000 units of the Galaxy Fold for its home market. The handset will be available in both carrier-locked and unlocked models. Samsung is currently discussing the matter with the three national carriers, the report adds. It also suggests a retail price of about 2.3 million won (~$1,900).

The release in South Korea is likely to be followed by releases in the US and China, where pre-registrations are already open. A global release may happen afterward. Samsung may launch the handset in select markets initially, though. Whether it sticks to the originally planned production run of 1 million units remains to be seen.

Samsung is also expected to unveil the redesigned Galaxy Fold to the global audience at the IFA in Berlin. The event runs from September 6 through September 11.
