Samsung Galaxy Fold Goes On Sale Right Before iPhone 11 Launch

We previously learned that the Galaxy Fold will go on sale this month, but new reports suggest that it come out this Friday, September 6 to be exact.

Over the past few weeks, we learned that Samsung has the plan to release the redesigned Galaxy Fold this September. However, new reports suggest that the company will actually launch it this Friday, September 6 to be exact. According to Reuters’ Wednesday report, the Fold will come out that day, in South Korea; the report is in line with a previous one from Yonhap. This Friday is not only the kick-off day of IFA 2019, the largest electronics trade show in Europe, but also just a few days ahead of the iPhone 11 launch event.

The Galaxy Fold will finally go on sale this Friday

Late last month, Apple sent out invitations for its iPhone 11 launch event, scheduled for September 10, where it will launch the next flagship along with other new products. The event will take place at the Steve Jobs Theater, Cupertino, California, US.

Samsung Galaxy Fold was initially planned to go on sale with a price of Rs 142,495 ($1,980) on April 26 and its preorders sold out right on the first day. However, just four days that, the Korean giant delay the rollout of this flagship after unit reviews reported screen breakages, bulging, and flickering.

The Galaxy Fold has been reinforced

According to CNET, the redesign of the Fold was first spotted last month, in which the screen, the hinge, and the phone’s internal structure have all been reinforced. In addition, the company seems to be looking to the next foldable phone for 2020, which will be cheaper, sporting a 6.7-inch screen. Also, it will fold inwards, turning into a small-sized square. However, its release depends on how the Fold sells.

Samsung did not respond immediately to a request for comment.
