Samsung Galaxy Fold gets an official new release date

Galaxy Fold Launches in South Korea This Friday; U.S. Launch in 'Coming Weeks'

People familiar with Samsung's plans indicate that the Galaxy Fold will be coming to the USA on September 27, and Samsung itself lists the American market as one of its expansion geographies after the Korean launch, alongside France, Germany, Singapore and the United Kingdom. Samsung thinks it has finally worked out the kinks, as the Galaxy Fold is now set for a re-release over the next few weeks.

Smartphone maker Samsung Electronics announced on Thursday (Sept 5) that its Galaxy Fold phone will be available here from Sept 18 at $3,088.

The Galaxy Fold will make its long awaited debut at the end of this week - though not in the U.S. What it does give additional info on, however, is the addition of a new Galaxy Fold Premier Service it's launching along with the phone.

Johanna Konta reaches US Open quarter-finals for the first time ever
Seven-time major victor John McEnroe said during her win over Pliskova he believed she had the ability to go all the way in NY . Pliskova, the 2016 US Open runner-up, saw her hopes of returning to world number one this fortnight extinguished by the loss.

Analysts told The Straits Times that Samsung is keen to launch the Galaxy Fold to bolster its reputation. The surprise addition however is that "in select markets" the Fold will be 5G-ready, while others will only have an LTE-compatible version to snap open and closed. "Now, we're excited to release this pioneering mobile technology, and allow consumers to experience it for themselves", said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics. Featuring a 7.3-inch internal flexible display, a smaller screen on the outside and app continuity between the two, the Galaxy Fold is an attempt at crafting a tablet device that fits into the space of a somewhat thick phone. The triple camera setup on back includes a 12MP primary camera with a variable aperture between f/1.5 and f/2.4, and OIS.

"Consumers have responded positively to larger screens, and the Galaxy Fold's revolutionary form factor offers a bigger, more immersive screen without sacrificing portability".
