The Samsung Galaxy Fold Will Start Sales of The New Product in US
The rebranded Samsung Galaxy fold will be launched on Friday at Best Buy of AT&T outlets and Samsung Experience Stores. It will come in two versions, 1. to be unlocked with codes or with an AT&T plan, the phone will only be available in two colors black and silver.
The Galaxy Fold is a 4.6 inch-smartphone that opens up into a 7.3-inch tablet. The price range is about $1800 – $2,000.
The foldable phone was originally scheduled to launch last year, but the plans were shelved after reports from reviewers about how easily the device broke.
Samsung tweaked the design in July by strengthening the phone’s hinge area and extended the top protective layer to make it more obvious to users that it is not supposed to be removed.
The company has also added caps to protect the top and bottom of the phone’s hinge.
Noticeably absent from the launch is T-Mobile, which initially offered pre-orders in April but had to give buyers’ refunds after Samsung scrapped the launch. AT&T also canceled pre-orders and offered customers a $100 gift card for the inconvenience.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold will run on Android 9. Samsung said it worked with Google and Android developers to optimize hundreds of apps for the device.
Customer are guaranteed of the rebranded product as Samsung has taken time build the phone that will not be easily broken as earlier speculated.
