Samsung claims that the long-awaited Galaxy Fold is’ now accessible’–at least in Korea’s home nation, where it will lastly be delivered on Friday, September 6. Don’t worry, everyone else, there’s more: Samsung’s postponed foldable phone will be launched in the coming weeks’ in the US, UK and other European nations, according to official news from the company.
First time Samsung spoke about the Galaxy Fold 5 G, though vaguely, noting that, “With a 5 G alternative in select nations, users will be capable to unfold the future at the fastest accessible network speeds.” The Samsung Galaxy Fold cost will stay unchanged: high. It will cost $1,980/ £ 1,800 (€ 2,000), twice the price of typical flagship phones, and come in two color variants that we’ve seen before: Black Cosmos and Silver Space
This is what Samsung claims the latest edition of the Galaxy Fold has modified:
The Infinity Flex Display’s top protective layer has been extended beyond the bezel, making it clear that it is an essential part of the display structure and not intended to be removed. Galaxy Fold appearance extra reinforcements to exceptional safeguard the device against external particles while preserving the foldable experience of its signature.

The OneUI software of Samsung transfers all the touchable components to the bottom of the screen so that consumers do not need to stretch their fingers to have an input register on the display. 3 apps can be opened on the screen at the same time, and a video or app can move “seamlessly” from the cover display to the main screen with App Continuity.

The Galaxy Fold is definitely a nice device given the high cost, but it could very well find a public among early adopters who want to be the first to own a foldable phone, thinking they are not offset by the initial stumbling of the Fold. There will also be a fight from the likes of the Huawei Mate X, which has an even larger display, as well as Oppo and other foldable devices.
