Will you still buy it?
After a botched release a few months ago, Samsung has now started selling the redesigned Galaxy Fold in select countries including South Korea, Germany, France, Singapore, UK, and the US. Both the black and silver colors will be on sale, along with the 5G versions in select markets.
Samsung Galaxy Fold is the company’s first foldable smartphone that comes with a 7.3-inch display that folds up to a smaller frame. The initial Galaxy Fold encountered its own set of problems at launch, highlighted by some early reviewers who managed to get hold of the device. The company did say that it has been refining the design to eliminate the earlier flaws, mostly on the foldable display.
“The category-defining Galaxy Fold is a device that defies the barriers of traditional smartphone design. 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. “Consumers have responded positively to larger screens, and the Galaxy Fold’s revolutionary form factor offers a bigger, more immersive screen without sacrificing portability. This is what we call innovation of new mobile experience in action.”
Powering the Galaxy Fold is Samsung’s own Exynos Octa-Core processor with the main 7.3-inch foldable display and the outer 4.6-inch display. There’s also 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of storage. The Galaxy Fold also houses six cameras: one 10-megapixel front cover camera, dual 10-megapixel and 8-megapixel front cameras on the main display, and a triple 16-megapixel ultra-wide, 12-megapixel wide-angle and 12-megapixel telephoto rear camera similar to the one found on the Galaxy S10.
There’s no word yet on a release date here in the Middle East, but seeing that it’s one of Samsung’s profitable markets you should be seeing the Galaxy Fold in stores very soon.
