Finally the folding phone is ready to go on the market, but we don’t know if it’s in Italy
By now it is in the air, that of Samsung Galaxy Fold has come out very expected, because we are talking about a device that we await from the month of April.
We all know the story: a phone on the launching pad was withdrawn the day before its debut, after some worrying episodes, which proved that perhaps the company had run a little too long.
The Galaxy Note 7 experience taught that it was better to be careful.
At first the postponement seemed like a few weeks, then the weeks became months and we have arrived to today, abundantly over 4 months from the unfortunate postponement.
Those who read Mister Gadget know that I never liked sensationalism. When I tried the Galaxy Fold I explained how the very nice phone conveyed a sense of “delicacy” that I was struggling to project on a phone, but I didn’t imagine it could reveal the weakness of the structure that we later discovered thanks to the American tests.
We knew during the summer that the company has now revised some details of the hinge, “sealed” the display, positioned a superior protection that cannot be removed without fatigue and overall improved resistance to stress.
According to what transpires today, this means that we are ready for the official launch, which should arrive during the next few weeks, probably on September 6th, the first day of the IFA.
Intense moment for Samsung that drops two axes practically at the same time when many important products of the competition arrive. The challenge for Christmas has begun. We need to understand if Italy will be one of the battlefields.
