The first commercial foldable smartphone by Samsung has been unveiled early this year. The Galaxy Fold was considered to be the premium flagship and the first foldable device that was set for consumer release later this year, during the launch. Right ahead of the launch, the review units of the Galaxy Fold reportedly had to face display issues, eventually causing display cracks and making them unusable.
Samsung acknowledged this and also had delayed the launch of the Galaxy Fold. The company’s executive has recently spoken about the fixes it has been considering for the display and assured that they are all set to launch the device sometime next month, as per earlier reports.
That said, there’s a new report suggesting the launch of the Galaxy Fold is imminent including the 4G LTE variant and the 5G variant as well. The report indicates the Galaxy Fold 5G variant passing the FCC certification, and the EMC certification, which was filed on April 25 and has been approved on June 3. The EMC report conducts the Electromagnetic compatibility test that assures the device’s electromagnet energy emission according to the norms and further validates the device.
Since it has passed the certification, it is safe to say the launch of the Galaxy Fold is imminent in sometime soon and not necessarily until August as there’s a Galaxy Note 10 and the Galaxy Note 10 Pro — another flagship series from Samsung coming in that month. To recall, the Galaxy Fold features a 7.3-inch Super AMOLED display that can be further folds and acts as a cover display outside with a screen size of 4.6-inches.
The Galaxy Fold is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 855 SoC and comes with 12GB RAM and 512GB of storage. The Galaxy Fold comes with a whopping total of six cameras. The launch date and the official pricing are yet to be known. Stay connected to PhoneRadar for more such interesting updates.
