According to a report from a Korean news agency, Samsung is in talks with three mobile telecommunication companies to release the company’s first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold in Korea on September 6.
The Korean manufacturer failed to deliver its promise of being able to start the shipping of the Galaxy Fold from April 26, because it encountered plenty of issues such as breaking of the screen and small objects getting wedged underneath in the folding smartphone. The company has since then been maintaining a silence over the date of re-launch.
Notably, September 6 is when the IFA 2019 will kick-off in Berlin, Germany, and it’d be a nice platform for Samsung to talk about the foldable smartphone again.
The report of the Galaxy Fold getting ready for a September 6 launch comes at a time when Samsung has already started the pre-registration process for the smartphone in China. The report also claimed that Samsung is targeting a September-release for the US and China too, but it’d happen only after it successfully launches the Galaxy Fold in Korea.
Meanwhile, an official of Samsung Electronics refused to confirm the news by saying, “The specific launch schedule is not yet confirmed.”
