Galaxy Fold is ready for use.
In July, Samsung issued an official announcement detailing the design improvements to the Galaxy Fold. These improvements include a revamp of the hinge structure as well as an extra layer of protection above the screen. Samsung hopes the improvements will prevent dust particles from entering and damaging the folding screen.
Samsung also launched a new service called "Galaxy Fold Premier Service". Although not detailed, but basically the user can call for advice and assistance from Samsung experts at any time. It seems that Samsung still fears Galaxy Fold smartphones will encounter problems during use. This service is included in the price of Galaxy Fold, which means users do not have to pay any extra fees.
The Galaxy Fold will debut right before the iPhone 11.
Last month, Chinese rival Huawei also delayed plans to launch its first foldable phone Mate X through September – the second delay this year.
