You probably already know everything that’s happened with the Galaxy Fold. And if you somehow happen to have no idea about what’s happening, here’s a recap:
Samsung announced its first foldable phone back in November 2018, and then formally unveiled it as the Galaxy Fold ahead of Mobile World Congress (MWC) in February. At the time, the consumer electronics giant said it would make the $2000 handset available to customers starting on April 26. But that never happened: After many of the first reviewers experienced massive hardware failures with the Galaxy Fold, including scratched and broken displays, Samsung finally bowed to the inevitable. On the eve of the expected launch, it finally delayed the release indefinitely. Two weeks later, it canceled all customer preorders too.
After all the recent developments, Samsung launched the new version of the Galaxy Fold in South Korea earlier this month. At the time, the company said the phone will be making its way to the US in the coming weeks.
And today, Samsung announced the Galaxy Fold will be available in the United States on September 27. The device will be available from select AT&T stores, and you will also be able to purchase unlocked versions of the device from Best Buy and Samsung Experience stores. The device starts at $1980 and comes in Cosmos Black and Space Silver finishes.
Interestingly, Samsung isn’t selling the Galaxy Fold at Microsoft Stores just yet, though that could change in the future.
Samsung is also talking a lot about the Galaxy Fold Premier Service with the re-launch of the Galaxy Fold. The care package essentially gives users access to premium customer service dedicated to the Galaxy Fold.
