    Samsung hadn't officially confirmed the Galaxy Fold US release when it first started shipping the foldable smartphone earlier this month. South Korea was the first to get it. The Galaxy Fold has since been available in select countries across Europe as well.

    The company confirmed today that it's going to start selling the Galaxy Fold in the United States from September 27. This date had been previously reported so it won't come as a surprise to those who have been following the latest developments related to this device.

    September 27 confirmed as the Galaxy Fold US release date

    Samsung confirmed today that the Galaxy Fold is going to be available from AT&T online and through select AT&T stores. The official factory unlocked variant of the handset is going to be available form select Best Buy stores and Samsung Experience Store retail outlets. Even though a 5G variant is available in South Korea and elsewhere, it won't be on offer in the United States.

    Some of you may recall that T-Mobile was going to carry the device when it was initially slated for release in April this year. The carrier has since confirmed that it's no longer going to carry the Galaxy Fold.

    Customers will have access to the Galaxy Fold Premier Service. They can consult with a Fold Concierge who can walk them through the device's features and the materials and accessories in the box. The device comes with a custom aramid fiber case and a pair of Galaxy Buds in the box. Galaxy Fold specialists will also be available around the clock at a dedicated toll-free number as part of this service and even through the Samsung Members app through video chat.

    Cosmos Black and Space Silver are the colors on offer in the US. Interested customers will be able to buy a Galaxy Fold in the United States on September 27 for $1,980. Can't decide whether to spend that much or not? Do check out our reasons why you should buy the Galaxy Fold.
