Our wait for the Galaxy Fold could reportedly end soon

If the latest tidbit from the Korean media is to be believed, Samsung’s finally done and dust with all the required tests for the Galaxy Fold. We had heard two weeks ago that Samsung had finished redesigning the Galaxy Fold and fixed all the issues that had resulted in it being delayed back in April, and according to Korean website The Elec, a group of tech experts have tested those fixes and told Samsung that the device “is good to go.”

The group of tech experts was reportedly formed by “industry professionals and professors” at two of Seoul’s leading research universities, but it’s unclear if these are the same people who were the basis for the report from two weeks ago. In any case, this is yet another unofficial report about Samsung’s progress on the Galaxy Fold while the company itself is failing to offer any concrete updates to prospective customers, so it’s best to have a healthy dose of skepticism until an official release date is announced.

That said, our wait for the Galaxy Fold might actually be over soon. DJ Koh, Samsung’s mobile chief, had revealed that the company has been testing over 2,000 Galaxy Fold units, and we later spotted a Galaxy Fold out in the wild in India just a week ago. And since Samsung has said the Galaxy Note 10’s debut won’t be affected by the Galaxy Fold, it’s entirely possible the company will choose to announce the release date for its foldable smartphone at the Galaxy Note 10 Unpacked event in New York on August 7.

Are you looking forward to the Galaxy Fold’s retail launch, or have you moved on and decided to wait for the next generation of Samsung’s foldable device?

They’ll have to release it with the Note, anymore time and people it will make them a bit of a laughing stock. But I’m glad too, that it’s been delayed, I really don’t like how the pricing of the Note10 is shaping up to be. You might as well by the Fold as it has Galaxy Buds and a case bundled in the box, take the price off them and it’s pretty much the same price as the Note10+

Considering how lackluster the Note 10 is shaping up to be, this may be my next upgrade. New “wow” form-factor, pretty much the same hardware as the Note 10, same cameras….

I’m glad the Fold was delayed, as it’s given me a chance to see how it compares with the Note 10. Even the price won’t be that different.

Fold is more expensive than Note.

Never lost my excitement towards the Fold. Hopefully Samsung will launch it in more countries than previously planned.
