Samsung Announces an Official Release Date for the Galaxy Fold Phone

Available in select regions.

Samsung previously revealed that it will be releasing the Galaxy Fold phone in “select markets” in September. The announcement came after reviewers complained about the poor quality of the new phones, and the tech company decided to update and revamp the Galaxy Fold before an official release. Now, according to The Verge, official release dates have been confirmed.

The handset with foldable technology will arrive in Korea first on September 6. Following on September 18 will be France, Germany, Singapore and the UK. The United States will see an official release date “in the coming weeks,” and rumor has it that it will drop on September 27.

The Verge also reports that Samsung will be offering a “Galaxy Fold Premier Service” that will be included with the price of the phone. While details are sparse, it’s presumed that the service will provide one-on-one sessions with Samsung experts on how to use and handle the phone due to its delicate screen. DJ Koh, Samsung Electronics’ President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, released the following statement about the upcoming phone:

“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.”
