This week promises to be very eventful for Samsung, due to some key product launches. It is said that the Galaxy Watch Active 2, for example, is preparing to be presented in South Korea on September 6, the same day that the company should finally launch its first folding smartphone, the Galaxy Fold.
Fold coming September 6th?
According to some rumors, the South Korean giant will take advantage of the first day of the fair IFA 2019 – to be held in Berlin from Friday 6 to Wednesday 11 September – to attract attention, showing the long-awaited fold. The company has allegedly solved the design and software problems that have condemned the original April launch and, while it is extremely important to ensure that the previous bottlenecks have actually been resolved, on the other hand the company could have another ace in the sleeve.
A rather intriguing report reveals, in fact, that Samsung could wisely re-evaluate its original intention to sell the Galaxy Fold at a price of $ 2,000, which obviously makes the device immediately out of reach for most consumers. Not much is known about the specifications of the new Galaxy Fold, although an unconfirmed rumor revealed that the leaflet could be available in a variant with 256 GB of storage space – about half of the 512 GB that would have been supplied with the original device -. We deduce that this version could allow Samsung to offer a model of the foldable to a reduced price, next – of course – to the more expensive version.
Recall that in early summer, the CEO of Samsung Electronics, DJ Koh, told reporters that the launch of Fold occurred in April it was embarrassing for the company and that "I had it presented before it was ready. I admit I lost something about the folding phone, but now we are recovering ",
If the launch rumors prove true, we'll just have to wait a few days to see if that "recovery" will be successful or not.
