Samsung Fixes Its Galaxy Fold, Release Scheduled for September
Samsung finally fixed its notorious foldable smartphone Galaxy Fold and will release it in September, according to the official announcement published on Wednesday, July 24.
The date of the official launch of sales has not yet been specified. However, Samsung confirmed that the price of its first foldable device will remain unchanged: $1,980.
As per the official release, the top protective layer, which initially looked like a removable film, was extended beyond the bezel. Now it looks like a crucial part of the display that is not meant to be removed.
Moreover, Samsung strengthened the foldable parts of the screen, with its hinge area receiving protection caps. The Infinity Flex Display now has additional metal layers underneath.
In April, Samsung sent the first test samples of its Galaxy Fold to bloggers and influencers, who soon reported screen damages and other bugs. As a consequence, Samsung officially delayed the official release of its device and canceled pre-orders to fix the problems.
The Samsung stock was up 2.5% at the opening of the markets on Thursday, July 25, following the announcement.
