After months of delays, the Samsung Galaxy Fold will finally be released in Singapore on Wednesday, the 18th of September.
The news was announced in a statement on the Samsung website today, where the Korean tech giant said that they’ve spent the past several months refining the phone to “ensure it delivers the best possible experience.”
“The category-defining Galaxy Fold is a device that defies the barriers of traditional smartphone design,” President and CEO of Samsung’s IT & Mobile Communications division DJ Koh said.
“Now we’re excited to release this pioneering mobile technology and allow consumers to experience it for themselves.”
Singapore will be one of the first countries in the world to receive the foldable phone, alongside Korea, France, Germany, Britain and the United States.
The phone will come in two colours — Cosmos black and Space Silver. For some reason only the black version will be available on the 18th, with silver releasing a few days later on Saturday, the 21st of September.
If you’re planning on being an early adopter, the Galaxy Fold will retail for $3,088. Foldable phones are no doubt a revolutionary, industry-changing product, but steep price point means that it probably won’t be flying off the shelves.
Nevertheless, the news finally puts an decisive end to the question of who’ll release the first foldable phone. The Huawei Mate X — which was originally slated to be released in September as well — has been delayed to the end of the year, so Samsung stands tall in the battle of the foldable phones.
