Five months later, Samsungs Galaxy Fold arrives this week

Theres fashionably late and then theres the Galaxy Fold. Initially scheduled for an April 22 launch, the device was delayed after multiple reviews returned broken devices. Samsung was quick to blame users, only to ultimately go back to the drawing board.
A few months later, the company offered a broad September timeframe. Samsung hit the mark with time to spare in its native South Korea, launching the device a few weeks back. Now its time to do the same here in North America. The companys first foldable (and, really, for that matter, the first commercially viable foldable) arrives this Friday, Sept 27.
The handset will be available as a carrier branded version through AT&T stores or unlocked through Best Buy and other retail locations. As noted, the companys also offering a Galaxy Fold Premier Service apparently part of the reason it canceled the original round of preorders. Basically the company wants to personally help users who buy the $2,000 deal with any specific problems.

Notably and somewhat humorously (albeit unintentionally so), the company recently issued a Caring for your Galaxy Fold video, which highlights how to not break the expensive new device. Samsung appears somewhat resigned to the fact that, which the device has been improved over the first attempt at going to market, the product is still more fragile than what weve come to expect from our smartphones.
To quote Samsung, Just use a light touch. That comes with the somewhat redundant Do not apply excessive pressure footnote. Not exactly the sort of thing that inspires confidence in a products durability.
