Samsung released the Galaxy Fold earlier this year. The foldable smartphone was met with a lot of critics, which has led to the company redesigning and improving some critical areas of the next-gen device.
Samsung has now relaunched the Galaxy Fold to the market and according to them, it is finally consumer-ready. The major design of Galaxy Fold remains unchanged from the original version – 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display on the inside and a 4.6-inch Super AMOLED panel on the outside.
However, Samsung has added rubber protection on top of the protective layer of the flexible screen. This will protect the device from dust and other small particles which could easily get into the phone’s mechanism through the foldable part.
Also, the digitizer protective layer has now been moved beyond the edges to avoid peeling accidentally. The whole camera setup remains unchanged and so is the Snapdragon 855 SoC with 12GB RAM and 512GB storage.
The 5G model of the Galaxy Fold comes with a slightly reduced battery capacity of 4235 mAh. It still retains two battery cells on the inside and lasts as much as the Galaxy Note 10 and Galaxy S10.
The new redesigned Galaxy Fold will drop in South Korea tomorrow. After which a selected list of countries can expect the smartphone. Among the countries are Singapore, Germany, France, the United Kingdom, and the United States. No official price has been stated yet but we expect it to still be around €2,000/$2,200 price tag of the original version.
