Selected retail outlets such as Samsung Experience Store, Best Buy and AT&T will be selling the much awaited Galaxy fold, the foldable phone by Samsung from this September 27th; according to an announcement made by the company. The $1,980 foldable phone will come with $129 worth wireless earphones by the company, Galaxy Buds as an added perk for those who buy the phone.
For the convenience of the customers to help them understand how the new foldable phone needs to be used and taken care of, a special “Galaxy Fold Premier Service” has been created by Samsung to ensure the same. Additionally, only buying the phone from the store, customers will get a concierge service that can be availed through a toll- free number active 24X7 or through Samsung app’s online service.
As the review units broke earlier, the sale of the phones had been postponed by the company to upgrade the design with tweaks that help prevent dust from seeping into the hinge of the foldable phone. Additionally, from preventing the customers from accidentally tearing off the screen, change was also made to the Fold’s screen protector.
A video has been created by Samsung despite the changes focusing on the phone’s safety made by the company. The video solely advises users to be gentle with their device. This gives rise to many doubts concerning the phone’s durability, though the phone software has also been refined by Samsung in the meanwhile.
For the device’s foldable screen, optimization of hundreds of Android apps has been work on by Samsung teaming up with Google. When displays will be changed by the user, the apps will automatically expand and minimize effortlessly as a result. Samsung’s website reflects a list of stores that will be selling the foldable phones which for now are available in two color variants of Space Silver and Cosmos Black.
