Update: Bloomberg is also reporting that the Galaxy Fold could release in the US on September 27. Samsung hasn’t revealed the release date yet, but with European markets set to get the Fold on September 18th, the company isn’t likely to take a lot of time to bring the device to North American shores, especially now that it is taking registrations from interested customers.
Original story follows
While Samsung has yet to confirm the Galaxy Fold US release date, a source that has been accurate on multiple accounts in the past suggests that it might be released on September 27. Samsung confirmed last month that it’s going to finally release the Galaxy Fold in September.
The company is yet to provide a concrete date. The release date is going to vary by market and it appears that South Korea might be the first to get the Galaxy Fold. The United States will then get it by the end of this month.
September 27 cited as the Galaxy Fold US release date
Tech leakster @evleaks sent out a tweet today which suggests that the Galaxy Fold is going to be released in the United States on September 27. Samsung recently opened up pre-registrations for the device in the country.
As far as the pricing and availability is concerned, the handset costs $1980 and it will be offered by AT&T in the United States. T-Mobile has decided that it no longer wants to sell the Galaxy Fold.
A report last week had claimed that the Galaxy Fold is going to be released on September 6 in South Korea. There hasn’t been a confirmation of that as yet but we should find out for sure soon if that’s going to be the case. It wouldn’t surprise anyone if Samsung were to choose its home country as the first launch market for the foldable smartphone.
Samsung fans have been patiently waiting for this device to arrive. It looks like the wait will soon be over for them. Samsung promises that the improvements it has made have been rigorously tested to ensure that the Galaxy Fold doesn’t run into problems again. We’ll be sure to check that out for ourselves once the device becomes available.
