Samsung Galaxy Fold foldable smartphone finally starts rolling out

Samsung introduced the Galaxy Fold at its Unpacked event back in February and said that it will go on sale in April. But it didn’t happen since people who reviewed the device reported issues with the screen and the body. Later in July the company announced that it will roll out the foldable device in September after making improvements to the design and construction. Today it has confirmed the roll out of the Galaxy Fold in Korea from tomorrow, followed by France and Germany, Singapore, U.K. and U.S. It will be available both in 5G and LTE models.
