“The Samsung Galaxy Fold will be available in black, silver, green, and blue colour options and is priced at KRW 2.39 million in Korea”
Samsung Galaxy Fold’s April launch was delayed, owing to design flaws that cracked open the screens, thereby making it unusable. The company went back to the drawing board to fix the issues and now it seems the actual launch might be right around the corner. The brand opened up the pre-registrations again in the US yesterday. Now, a new report from South Korean carrier KT claims that the Galaxy Fold would start shipping in the country on September 11th.
It’s possible that Samsung would re-announce the Galaxy Fold at the IFA event on September 6th and that could be when the pre-orders would start officially in the US. The company seems to be pushing the phone’s release in South Korea on September 6th, at least the unlocked models with around 20,000-30,000 units for the initial sale. However, another source claims that there would be 2,500 units on sale initially, with 300-400 for Korean carriers. The Galaxy Fold will be available in black, silver, green, and blue colour options and is priced at KRW 2.39 million (approximately $1,965) in Korea. As for the US, the handset is rumoured to be available starting September 27th.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold packs a 7.3-inch dynamic AMOLED display with 1,536 x 2,152 pixels resolution and there’s a 4.6-inch, Super AMOLED 21:9 display on the outside. The handset is powered by the Snapdragon 855 SoC and runs on Android 9.0 Pie with customised One UI on top. A 4,380mAh battery with fast Charging support fuels the handset.
