In November 2018, Samsung unveiled its folding smartphone concept by showing a prototype in its annual developer conference in San Francisco and in February 2019 they came up with its official name during its Unpacked event. It was a great event as they got succeeded in its demonstration and in proving its successful functionality.
The other surprise was its price and launching date as the amount was around 1.5 L and the date announced for this major entry in the era of smartphones was 26th April 2019, which rose questions whether the company would be able to convert this prototype into a fully functioned consumer product or not?
In mid of April 2019, Samsung shared these devices with media for the review purposes. The initial responses were very positive regarding its features but after a few days, the reports started failing due to a variety of reasons.
When some of these phones were distributed to tech reviewers, its screen got crumbled in their hands and some of the devices broke because the reviewer removed the thin screen protected the sheet, which wasn’t supposed to be removed.
Later Samsung officially delayed the launch of Galaxy foldable smartphones for resolving these issues but despite that, this device still has a lot to get excited about. The release date of these Smartphones has been moved to June 2019, as indicated by a report from South Korea. It might be possible that Fold would be released in South Korea first, before the United States and different areas.

Samsung is utilizing another 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display that enables the phone itself to have a tablet-sized screen, which can be collapsed to fit into a pocket.
