Samsung finally confirmed the release date of its folding cellphone, Samsung Galaxy Fold. The device will go on sale on September 2019 in several region.
Reporting from the Reuters on Thursday (07/25/2019), Samsung also reported that currently, Galaxy Fold is in final test phase. The sale of Galaxy Fold was postponed because of problems on the screen earlier this year.
Furthermore, the CEO of Samsung, DJ Koh has also revealed that Samsung will not sell the Galaxy Fold before problems can be fixed. The thin, protective top layer that looks like a removable plastic screen protector has been redesigned to avoid confusion.
The Polished Samsung Galaxy Fold, What’s the Difference?
The protective layer of the Infinity Flex screen on Samsung Galaxy Fold has been extended beyond the bezel. Samsung also said it had closed the potentially debris vulnerable part around the double-shaft 20 parts hinges, which is important for folding and opening the device.
As dust has entered through the gap around the hinge and caused both screens to be damaged on some review units. To counteract, the top and bottom of the hinge area has been reinforced with a new protective cover.
An additional metal layer under the Infinity Flex screen has been included to strengthen screen protection. The space between the hinge and the body of the Samsung Galaxy Fold has been reduced.
The specifications and concept of the Samsung Galaxy Fold remain the same, which has a sharp 7.3-inch QXGA + mini-tablet screen, and when folded it displays a 4.6-inch HD + outer screen that is separate on the outside when folded.
The Galaxy Fold has a total of six cameras, three on the back of the device and two additional cameras in the 7.3-inch screen notch. The battery capacity is 4.380mAh. Samsung is also predicted to launch the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy Note 10 Plus on August 7.
