Samsung Galaxy Fold pre-registrations are now live in the US

Samsung Galaxy Fold pre-registrations are now live in the US
We reported last week that Samsung Galaxy Fold pre-registrations opened in China and that the unique smartphone might be launched on the market earlier than expected. To support those reports comes another piece of news that informs us the device is now up for pre-registration in the United States.

Although you can't pre-order one yet, Samsung displays the price of the Galaxy Fold, which remains unchanged: $1,980. According to Samsung US, the smartphone will be available for purchase from at least two carriers, AT&T and T-Mobile, in three colors: Gold Hinge, Dark Silver Hinge, and Black Hinge.

Since the Korean media claims the Galaxy Fold will be launched on the market on September 6, at least in South Korea, we expect pre-orders for the smartphone to open in just a few days. Of course, Samsung may decide to delay the launch of the Galaxy Fold in the US, although it doesn't look like the company will wait until September 27, as previously stated.

Samsung made important changes to the Galaxy Fold after the first batch of phones failed to meet the required standards. Additional reinforcements have been implemented to better protect the device from external particles. Also, the top and bottom of the hinge area have been strengthened, while the top protective layer of the Infinity Flex Display has been extended beyond the bezel.

I bet someone said that to the people that bought the very first mobile bag phones in the early 80s. If it weren't for demand from people embracing evolution of mobile phones, we'd not be at this point. Surely, the first "mobile" phones didn't cost the equivalent of $1,980? Gotta pay to to break new grounds, and prices will come down. Calling the daring few, is a little shallow. Without them this will be doa. But, thats not gonna happen. Move on.

The problem is that folding phone technology is really expensive and will likely get more expensive before it ever goes down And it also means normal smartphones will also decrease in price and therefore be even more in demand over folding models So who’s gonna buy a galaxy fold for example just cuz it’s down by $500 and now is $1480 but normal smartphones that would be $900 are now $600 or cheaper

I bet they would reduce the price in just 3 months.

$2000 for a phone? LOL. A fool and his money are soon parted.
