Samsung's Galaxy Fold is available now in Korea -- with 5G

Samsung's Galaxy Fold is available now in Korea -- with 5G

Last month, Chinese rival Huawei Technologies Co Ltd delayed the planned September launch of its own first foldable phone, its second postponement this year, as it battles a US trade blacklist that threatens the tech giant's access to crucial USA technologies such as Alphabet Inc's GOOGL.O Android operating system.

Samsung Electronics Co. announced that its Galaxy Fold will go on sale September 6 in its home market of South Korea, following a months-long delay caused by the discovery of a severe defect in the original design.

Besides Singapore, the Fold is available in only a few other countries including France, Germany, United States and Britain. Samsung may be getting ready to unveil an updated Galaxy Fold... but would you buy one following the fiasco? What it does give additional info on, however, is the addition of a new Galaxy Fold Premier Service it's launching along with the phone.

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline Make Child Custody Change
Former husband Kevin Federline , also known as K-Fed, has now been granted 70 per cent after they formerly shared custody 50/50. Spears' sons were also recently granted a restraining order against their grandfather that was filed by Federline and Kaplan.


"The category-defining Galaxy Fold is a device that defies the barriers of traditional smartphone design".

After several rounds of delays, Samsung has relaunched the Galaxy Fold. "Now, we're excited to release this pioneering mobile technology, and allow consumers to experience it for themselves", said Mr D.J. Koh, chief executive of Samsng's smartphone division.

Other improvements include reinforcing the phone to better protect it from external particles, as well as reducing the space between the hinge and the Fold's body. In July, the company announced a September launch for the Galaxy Fold which has now been whittled down to September 6th by the manufacturer. Three apps can be opened at one time on the internal screen, and with App Continuity a video or an app can move "seamlessly" from the cover display to the internal screen.
