Samsung Galaxy Fold is back after forcedscreen sick leave and goes on sale again. An amazing, one-of-a-kind device will appear on the markets of Germany, France, Great Britain, Singapore and the USA on September 18th. In South Korea, the model is on sale from September 6.
The reason the model didn’t see the light inthe first time, the screen design turned out to be unsuccessful - it broke down shortly before the start of sales when testing several people at once. Of course, I would like to know what exactly the company did to ensure strength to the weak link, but Samsung does not cover this topic. But the discount for replacing the screen is announced, if such a need arises within the first year from the date of purchase.
