New and improved Galaxy Fold gets its first hands-on review by... Samsung

Samsung's new and improved Galaxy Fold is scheduled for release tomorrow, at least in Korea, and Samsung just announced its 5G version as we were sitting during its keynote presentation at the IFA 2019 expo.

As if to showcase that all is well when it ends well, Samsung just issued its own Galaxy Fold hands on, detailing the design, the folding process, the unique multitasking abilities and everything that is worth knowing about the handset.

It will be released on September 6th in Korea, and then trickle down to places like US, China and Europe at a sub-$2000 starting price. We shudder to think what the 5G version that Samsung just flashed us with from stage is going to cost, but we are sure all will be revealed in due course. 

The US release date is tentatively pegged for September 28, but we are waiting for an official announcement from Samsung on that.
