Samsung folding screen phone to go on sale after big delay

The company's first commercially available foldable phone will launch in South Korea on September 6, followed by select markets including France, Singapore, Germany, US, UK and more. The company has also planned to launch the Galaxy Fold in France, Germany, Singapore, U.K., and the USA soon. The colors available would be Cosmos Black and Space Silver.

Samsung Electronics is releasing a new edition of its Galaxy Note 10 smartphone that will come with a pre-installed cryptocurrency wallet in its bid to further boost adoption for blockchain.

The Galaxy Fold has been widely promoted as the "world´s first foldable smartphone", while rivals such as China´s Huawei have been racing to bring similar devices to market.

Samsung also announced that anyone who buys a Fold will have access to "specialised customer care services", including 24-hour support and access to one-on-one time with Samsung experts. In-store sales might also preclude using that $250 online credit on the Galaxy Fold. However, during a review period in mid-April, technological issues were raised. That is a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display on the inside a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED panel on the outside. Small, v-shaped protective caps have been added to the top and bottom of the display where the screen folds.

When you open the Fold, it stays open with a confident tautness in the hinge and display.

It also has a "Multi-Active-Window" for stronger multi-tasking, with the 7.3-inch screen divided into two or three parts. The chipset on the foldable smartphone comes mated with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage option. Limited numbers are headed out to South Korea this week, and European availability will pick up where that leaves off shortly. On the rear, meanwhile, the phone features a triple-camera setup with a 16MP f/2.2 ultra wide-angle, a 12MP f/1.5-2.4 wide-angle, and a 12MP f/2.4 telephoto camera. Despite improved sales of lower-end phones, sluggish sales of high-end smartphones weakened its profitability. That puts it up against formidable smartphone competition, however Samsung's pitch for the Fold is that it defines its own new niche.
