The Samsung Galaxy Fold will be released soon (tomorrow, if you live in South Korea), but given that it is a very expensive phone priced at almost $2,000, we’re sure that many of you are hesitating on whether or not to pull the trigger and go ahead and purchase it. We totally get your trepidation, especially with a piece of tech that has yet to prove itself.
If you’re still trying to figure out whether or not the Galaxy Fold is the phone for you, you might be interested in checking out this official Galaxy Fold hands-on video that was released by Samsung. The video shows us what the phone will actually look like in real-life, in both its folded and unfolded states.
Samsung is reportedly planning to release a Galaxy Note 10 cryptocurrency edition in collaboration with Kakao Corp. According to Cointelegraph citing a WSJ report, the Galaxy Note 10 variant will be marketed as the “KlaytnPhone.” The name stems from Kakao’s blockchain network called Klaytn which was introduced last October.
Back in July, Samsung confirmed that they will be re-releasing the Galaxy Fold in September. The company stopped short of actually saying when the phone will be released, but it looks like we now have a definitive date to look forward to.
In a press release by Samsung, the company has announced that come 6th of September (which is tomorrow), the Galaxy Fold will be released to the masses. Before you get too excited, Samsung’s announcement only covers South Korea’s launch. If you were hoping to pick it up in the US, the company has yet to officially confirm a release date, but sources speaking to Bloomberg have suggested that it could land stateside on the 27th of September.
We know that the company did have plans to release in the US and had partnered with various carriers and retailers, although the delay of the phone’s launch resulted in these carriers and retailers cancelling pre-orders of the handset. The phone is also expected to come with some changes made to its design, where Samsung will be reinforcing parts of the phone that were discovered to be problematic.
This includes the screen protector which some reviewers had mistakenly taken off, resulting in the screen getting damaged. The changes will also cover the hinge where it will now be slightly more impervious to dust and debris getting inside of it, where previously when debris got inside of it, it made the phone difficult to unfold and fold.
It will be interesting to see how well the phone will be received, especially given its price tag where it was previously announced that the Galaxy Fold would cost $1,980.
Starting October, you will be able to get your Galaxy phone or smartwatch repaired wherever you desire by simply calling up Samsung and asking for one of their express repair vans, at least if you’re in Germany. Samsung has revealed the Express Repair service at IFA 2019 in Berlin – the service will have a fleet of 21 Express Repair buses that will be on call to reach customers at their preferred location to fix their device. Basically, Samsung’s repair shops will now come to you instead of asking you to visit them.
For the last few weeks, we have seen bits and pieces of evidence of Samsung working on a new tablet. Most recently, it was spotted at the FCC, securing necessary regulatory approvals before hitting the market. Samsung has now made this tablet official in Germany, and as predicted, it is the Galaxy Tab Active Pro.
Samsung today formally announced its latest 5G-enabled smartphone, the Galaxy A90 5G. The first A series phone with 5G connectivity, Galaxy A90 5G offers near flagship-grade hardware and comes with some impressive features like Samsung DeX support and Game Booster for enhanced gaming performance.
The Galaxy Fold is coming out tomorrow and so ends the long wait for those who were looking forward to Samsung’s first foldable smartphone. It was supposed to be released in April this year. However, there were issues that needed to be addressed.
Samsung is commemorating its 50th anniversary at IFA 2019 in Berlin. It conducted a press conference today as part of the trade show to talk about the advancements in connectivity and innovation that it has made over the past five decades.
