It seems that this time Samsung will finally begin selling its Galaxy Fold smartphone. The start of sales has already been delayed this year, as some flaws were found in the model.
The company said that in South Korea the sales would begin on September, 6. A few weeks after the Asian premiere, the smartphone will enter the markets in the United States and Europe.
At first, Samsung planned to start selling the new model in late April, but then the company’s specialists found several significant problems and the start of sales had to be postponed.
Galaxy Fold looks like a regular smartphone that can be turned into a tablet. During testing, the specialists detected problems with folding the screen. Also, some users accidentally tore off the top layer of the display, taking it for a regular film.
In July, the company announced that all flaws had been eliminated. The screen got extra protection, and the fold was redesigned.
The main display size of the phone is 7.3 inches. The device is able to operate in 5G network. The starting price of the smartphone will be about $ 2,000.
In August, 2 new versions of the flagship Note 10 and Note 10+ were introduced.
Earlier, the reputable agency Bloomberg reported that Samsung was already working on a new smartphone. It will have a screen folding inward. Such information was provided by sources close to the developers of the new device. The company neither confirms nor denies this news.
