Neither the Samsung Galaxy Fold nor the Galaxy Z Flip are considered cheap, but given that they both use new foldable display technology, we suppose it can almost be excused as the price one expects to pay for being an early adopter. For those who might be worried that their successors could be priced even higher, there is some good news.
If you were worried that the coronavirus would somehow impact the release of smartphones this year, it seems that Samsung is still on track to release new handsets later in the year. During Samsung’s earnings call, the company has confirmed that they plan on releasing two new phones later this year.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold is the first smartphone with a foldable display from the Korean tech giant. As such, in terms of accessories, we can’t say we’re surprised that there aren’t that many options around. However, with the next-gen Galaxy Fold, Samsung will apparently have some premium accessories made for the phone.
While Samsung has typically used glass covers for its displays on its smartphones, the company took a different approach with the Galaxy Fold. The company instead opted for a plastic screen to help make it more flexible during the folding process. The downside is that over time, this can result in creases.
One of the more obvious form factors and designs of foldable devices is a smartphone-cum-tablet hybrid. It makes sense where a smaller display unfolds to become a larger one. This is exactly the kind of design that Samsung went with with the Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone.
Update – Samsung has since told Yonhap News that they did not sell 1 million units of the phone. They claim that Sohn might have confused initial sales target for the actual sales.The Samsung Galaxy Fold was launched not too long ago and it seems that it has already enjoyed some success. This is according to Samsung Electronics President Young Sohn, who during TechCrunch Disrupt Berlin, revealed that the company […]
Samsung Galaxy Fold Review: 28 Days LaterEditor's Pick
The Galaxy Fold is now available in the U.S, shortly after selling out in Korea during its initial debut.It brings a new smartphone experience centered on what Samsung calls “a new dawn in display technology.” The company pitches the Fold as being “phone and tablet” in one device.
One of the ways that Samsung wanted the Galaxy Fold to stand out from the competition wasn’t just based on hardware, but also the after sales service where the company planned to offer a concierge-like service for customers. Given that the phone is priced at an eye-watering $2,000, we imagine that customers probably won’t be satisfied with just the hardware alone.
A couple of weeks ago, it was reported that after a day of using the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the display of the device started to exhibit signs of damage. Now it looks like less than a month of the phone being announced, new quality issues have surfaced, this time in the form of the logo of the phone literally peeling off.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold was initially supposed to launch earlier this year, but due to durability and build issues, Samsung recalled the handset to try and fix some of its weak points. The handset is expected to be released in the US tomorrow but it seems that at least one of the review units have already been damaged.
It seems that the early rumors about the Samsung Galaxy Fold being a limited run device is right. This is because so far, only a handful of countries around the world, like South Korea and the US, seem to be getting the phone. This is completely understandable as Samsung would probably like to test the market before committing more resources to the production, which we imagine probably isn’t cheap given […]
The Samsung Galaxy Fold will be officially making its way to the US on the 27th of September. Now, the phone is pretty expensive and comes with all kinds of warning labels to users telling them how to take care of the phone. However, in the event that you do ruin the screen, it seems that you will be able to replace it, although it will cost you less than […]
It has been a couple of weeks since the Samsung Galaxy Fold was relaunched. However, if you haven’t been following the news, the Galaxy Fold’s relaunch was only for the South Korean market. The good news for our readers stateside is that if you were looking forward to getting your hands on the phone, you’ll only have to wait a few more days.
The other day, Samsung officially announced that their foldable smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy Fold, will be relaunched and available for purchase in South Korea on the 6th of September. There is some skepticism surrounding the handset due to its asking price, but it turns out that there are a lot of eager early adopters.
