Samsung has revealed it will launch the Galaxy Fold in South Korea on September 6th and in the U.S. “in the coming weeks.”
According to a blog post the night before IFA 2019, Samsung indicated that the phone will release in two colours: Cosmos Black and Space Silver.
Citing sources familiar with the matter, Bloomberg reported that the phone is expected to launch in the U.S. on September 27th. The phone was originally scheduled to go on sale in April and in the summer in Canada, but that date was pushed back because of design issues with early review units related to debris getting stuck behind the device’s foldable display.
Around that same date, Samsung intends to launch the phone in other countries including France, Germany, Singapore and the U.K.
MobileSyrup has learned that the luxury phone is not going to be coming to Canada.
Bloomberg added that the phone that will be launched in Korea will be of only one variant. It will feature 512GB of storage, 12GB of RAM and 5G connectivity capabilities, it said. The article also indicated that the phone is priced at 2.39 million won (which is about $2,635 CAD). The phone will also come with a free Montblanc luxury case.
More recently, rumours indicate that Samsung is expected to also release a second foldable device next spring.
Update 05/09/10: The article has been updated with information regarding Canadian affordability.
