We haven’t heard a lot about Samsung’s Galaxy Fold since its launch in September. Given the handset’s early troubles (which led to a prolonged delay), that’s in all probability a superb factor. Suffice to say, at $1,980, gross sales weren’t spectacular. According to the publication, Samsung has bought roughly half 1,000,000 items since launch.
The first successor to the Fold will reportedly be priced round $850. A second revision – extra of a real successor to the present vertically-folding system – will reportedly break cowl in August. No phrase on how a lot that variant might command.
