Samsung finally re-launched the Galaxy Fold earlier this month, after several delays. The foldable smartphone went on sale in South Korea on September 6 and was later launched in parts of Europe. Starting today, the foldable phone will be available in the U.S. as well, although only in limited quantities. The refreshed Galaxy Fold comes with several improvements to the display and hinge, which help make it more durable than the early units.
