Since the launch of the Galaxy Fold back in February, Samsung has been delaying the device due to the design issues. In case you forgot, immediately after the launch, tech reviewers around the world complained about the design issues and getting cracked displays just after a couple of days of use.
Samsung later acknowledged the issue and cancelled the launch. Later, Samsung again cancelled the launch on various occasions due to the same issue. However, last month, we showed the before and after pictures of the Galaxy Fold. The pictures showed the different changes Samsung made to improve the build quality of the device. After testing the device for more than a month, Samsung, today announced the official re-launch of the device. Samsung stated that the device will be available in Korea from tomorrow. The company has also planned to launch the Galaxy Fold in France, Germany, Singapore, U.K., and the U.S. soon. The device will support 5G and is available in Cosmos Black and Space Silver.
The category-defining Galaxy Fold is a device that defies the barriers of traditional smartphone design. Now, we’re excited to release this pioneering mobile technology, and allow consumers to experience it for themselves. Consumers have responded positively to larger screens, and the Galaxy Fold’s revolutionary form factor offers a bigger, more immersive screen without sacrificing portability. This is what we call innovation of new mobile experience in action.

In the press release, Samsung didn’t mention the price of the device but we assume it’s going to be the same. Samsung, however, is offering Montblanc luxury cases to early adopters in Korea. Another rumour suggests that the device will launch in the US on 27th September. Unfortunately, Samsung hasn’t confirmed if that’s true.
