Samsung to start selling Galaxy Fold in September
The tech giant said it had made improvements to the nearly $2,000 phone and was conducting final tests.
Samsung Electronics Co Ltd's first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, will go on sale from September in selected markets after the launch was delayed by screen problems earlier this year, the company said on Thursday.
Samsung is hoping its highly anticipated foldable phone will revive flagging smartphone sales but its rollout has been hampered by defects in samples reported in April.
The South Korean tech giant said in a statement it had made improvements to the nearly $2,000 phone and was conducting final tests.
Changes included strengthening hinges which early reviewers had found to be problematic.
The world's top smartphone maker has hailed the folding design as the future in a segment that has seen few surprises since Apple Inc's groundbreaking iPhone was released in 2007.
Huawei Technologies Co Ltd has also announced a folding handset, the Mate X, which is expected to go on sale in September.
Samsung is still in talks with mobile carriers around the world to decide on details of the Fold's sale, a source with knowledge of the matter said.
