T-Mobile isn't going to sell Samsung's Galaxy Fold when it launches
The original Galaxy Fold

Today is a pretty good day for Galaxy Fold fans. Three months after the $2,000 foldable’s launch was canceled Samsung has finally committed to a new launch timeframe – September. There’s just one downside to everything.

When Samsung originally introduced the Galaxy Fold earlier this year, both AT&T and T-Mobile confirmed their intent to sell the premium device both online and inside physical stores. But when contacted earlier today following Samsung’s announcement, T-Mobile told The Verge that its plans have changed.


Unfortunately, the carrier didn’t elaborate any further and failed to provide an exact reason for its decision. But considering everything that’s gone on over the past few months, this likely has something to do with maintaining the company’s reputation and ultimately avoiding unnecessary scandals. After all, while Samsung believes the Galaxy Fold is now ready for release, it also believed that three months ago when it was clearly an unfinished product. 

In regards to AT&T’s status on the matter, the company has yet to provide a response. Nevertheless, it has said that it’s still working with Samsung which would suggest the carrier could be in the process of testing the device vigorously before making a decision about its release.

I would not buy the first generation of any foldable phone. The sales won't be good but mobile phones in general, will be ok http://gs.statcounter.com/vendor-market-share/mobile/worldwide

Good for T-Mobile because they will be needing 100 more technical assistants to answer problems that it will give.

It's going to be alright. You will get your iFold in 2 years with a $4,000 price tag.

At least it would work as intended to be unlike your 2 day old cheap foldable.

I don’t mind spending money that will give me freedom from android usual issues (battery, camera, performance, apps, services, overheating, no unli 4k, buggy OS, unsecure, poor design and quality, half baked features and gimmicks).

You are a true blinded iSheep and a hopeless person. What you said above most are not true. You shouldn't be too obsessed with Samsung. That's not good. Go and hang out with your iDiots. They will make you feel better.
