After years of teasing, Samsung finally announced the Galaxy fold in February this year. Unfortunately, the much-awaited device was off to a terrible start, with Samsung delaying the launch in the wake of widespread durability complaints with review units. The Korean company eventually made some design tweaks and relaunched the Fold in select markets in September.
Since then, Samsung has been gradually expanding the availability of the Galaxy Fold to more and more markets. Next in line seems to be Hungary, as the company has created a Galaxy Fold product page on its local website. Pricing and release date are currently unknown, but the company has a pre-registration option for those who are interested.
The Galaxy Fold pricing in other markets hovers around the $2,000 mark, depending on taxes, duties, and other factors. The pricing in Hungary should be no different. Despite all the negative publicity and the eye-watering price tag, the product has proven to be popular in markets where it went on sale, with stock vanishing quickly on many occasions.
It remains to be seen how long Samsung continues to expand the availability of the current Galaxy Fold considering a new model in the lineup is set to hit the market soon. It will also be interesting to see if Samsung tweaks the pricing of the original Fold as it inches closer to the launch of a new model.
