Samsung has fixed the issues that plagued the first batch of Galaxy Fold units that were sent out to reviewers a few months ago and is now ready to re-launch the foldable smartphone soon.
The company confirmed that it plans to release the device in September and is probably running final round tests right now. A new report now pegs the launch date for the Galaxy Fold between September 18-20.
The Investor reports that Samsung may release the Galaxy Fold by September 20, which means the company is targeting a launch after Apple’s upcoming iPhone event. Apple typically launches its new iPhones in the first half of September.
The Cupertino tech giant is expected to announce three new iPhones this September that will succeed last year’s iPhone XR, XS and XS Max.
The Galaxy Fold’s launch is highly anticipated as many are eager to see the possibilities of a foldable smartphone. That being said, the Galaxy Fold display issues and high price tag will be met with some scepticism, which is why Samsung is not looking at major sales numbers.
The first iteration of the Galaxy Fold will be about showing off what the technology is capable of doing. Huawei is also expected to launch the Mate X by the end of the year as the company decided to delay the launch to make sure the device does not face similar issues as the Fold. More
