Samsung Announces Galaxy Fold Will Launch Starting in September

Samsung has announced that it will launch its Galaxy Fold smartphone starting in September. The company was forced to cancel its scheduled release in April after reviewers encountered numerous issues with the device.

Earlier this year, we announced Galaxy Fold—Samsung’s first foldable device, and the beginning of an entirely new mobile category. Since then, we’ve made improvements to Galaxy Fold to ensure consumers have the best possible experience. Samsung has taken the time to fully evaluate the product design, make necessary improvements and run rigorous tests to validate the changes we made.

Design and construction improvements include:
● The top protective layer of the Infinity Flex Display has been extended beyond the bezel, making it apparent that it is an integral part of the display structure and not meant to be removed.
● Galaxy Fold features additional reinforcements to better protect the device from external particles while maintaining its signature foldable experience:
● The top and bottom of the hinge area have been strengthened with newly added protection caps.
○ Additional metal layers underneath the Infinity Flex Display have been included to reinforce the protection of the display.
○ The space between the hinge and body of Galaxy Fold has been reduced.

Along with these improvements, Samsung says it has been continuously working to improve the overall Galaxy Fold user experience, including optimizing more apps and services for its foldable UX.

Samsung is conducting final product tests to make Galaxy Fold available to consumers starting from September in select markets. Availability details will be shared closer to launch.

If only Samsung can come up with their own OS similar to Apple’s interface etc. I’d switch after all these years. I just despise google and all their products.

Hats off to Samsung for constantly pushing innovation forward - something Apple no longer does. It might fail but that’s what happens sometimes when risks are taken. They even listened to user feedback during the soft release and made improvements.
