With the rise and dominance of the touch screen smartphones, people became used to seeing smartphones to have this shape and some distinct features. This is why when Android co-founder Andy Rubin shared that he and his team was working on developing tall smartphones, everyone was waiting with eyes wide open.
Samsung, one of the leading multinational technology conglomerates is also probably one of the most famous in terms of the devices and gadgets they offer. From simple smartphones to Samsung Gears, they’re really ahead of the game.
Not to mention that they have plans in offering a foldable smartphone that they said will be released any time soon, here in the country.
Samsung Galaxy Fold in delaying the global release
Originally, Samsung had planned to release foldable phones in the market in September of this year. However, due to some of their units’screens malfunctioning, they delayed and rescheduled the official worldwide release of the Samsung Galaxy Fold within the next few months.
In a statement, Samsung said that its company is busy in redefining the Galaxy Fold for it to become another game leader in the tech industry.
During the past several months, Samsung has been refining the Galaxy Fold to ensure it delivers the best possible experience. Not only did Samsung improve the Galaxy Fold’s design and construction, but also took the time to rethink the entire consumer journey.”
Many of us Filipino tech-junkies are more than excited of the release of the Galaxy Fold in the Philippines. Because of its ideal and rare style, it really would captivate all technology-lovers.
Is it now available in other countries?
Samsung launched the device back in September of this year and reported that the device was “sold out” in various countries. No mention of which countries these are but it was loved by the majority of people.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold is expected to arrive in the country within a few months. Could this be potentially the best smartphone we will ever have? Could this change our perspective on looking at smartphones?
As per Samsung, the phone contains an Infinity Flex Display that would be 7.3 inches. Basically, it would be providing some sort of a tablet experience for smartphone users.
