Galaxy Fold is back -- this time for real

id="article-body" class="row" section="article-body"> The Galaxy Fold was supposed to be released on April 26.

Angela Lang/CNET Eighty-nine days after it was supposed to go on sale, Samsung announced a new release window for the galaxy a30 Antutu score Fold, its first foldable phone. Or rather, galaxy a20e antutu score a release month: September. And only in select countries, as initially planned. Samsung said it would share specific sale dates as the month nears -- we'd guess as early as August. With this announcement, the world's largest phone-maker has at long last broken its silence about the nearly $2,000 device, huawei y9 2019 Antutu Benchmark score which has been delayed since April 22 after reviewers reported screen breakages, flickering and bulging.

Although the Galaxy Fold preorders sold out on the first day, the phone never officially went on sale, and no preorder money was collected. CNET's review unit didn't break, though it did experience minor damage to the screen. (See our Galaxy Fold review in progress here.) The Fold costs $1,980, which converts to about £1,500 or AU$2,800.

In addition to a new launch window, Samsung also said it fixed the problems that caused some reviewers' phones to break in the first place. The fixes include:


A protective top layer that extends beyond the bezel, "making it apparent that it is an integral part of the display structure," not a dust guard you'd want to remove.

"Reinforcements" to keep debris from working its way underneath the screen.

New "protection caps" to strengthen the top and bottom of the hinge area, which had revealed natural gaps where particles could get in.

Metal reinforcements beneath the screen (the Infinity Flex Display), presumably to make the plastic screen stiffer.

Reducing the air gap between the Fold's body and hinge.
Now playing: Watch this: Our Galaxy Fold didn't break. Here's what's good and... 10:12 "All of us at Samsung appreciate the support and patience we've received from Galaxy fans all over the world," Samsung said in its statement. Samsung has also worked on improving apps, the company said in its statement. The company added that it's conducting final quality control tests.

A new sales date acknowledges that Samsung still has faith in the foldable phone's future, even if some of its critics waver. We haven't seen the new phone in person, but Samsung did provide some mock-ups. It's hard to see details of the Fold redesign, huawei nova5 pro antutu rating however.

Along with 5G, the next-generation network technology, foldable phone designs are potentially the most significant change to the phone industry in a decade. At a time when sales are stalling for heavyweights such as Apple and Samsung, galaxy a30 antutu score a phone that folds in half offers a radical new look. It also opens up new ways to use a device that has the screen size of a tablet in a package about the size of a large smartphone.

The delay has caused concern over the ability of foldable phones to make good on their design promise, especially at such exorbitant prices. huawei p smart plus 2019 antutu score's foldable phone, the Mate X, costs 2,300 euros (about $2,600, £2,000 or AU$3,700). Samsung Galaxy A20 Antutu's very public problems have also cast doubt over rival phone-makers' eagerness to release their own foldable phones.
