After several delays, the Galaxy Fold finally went on sale in South Korea earlier this month. The phone was also launched in the UK last week. Thanks to the various changes that Samsung has made, refreshed Galaxy Fold units are a lot more durable compared to the early units that were shipped to reviewers in April.
Samsung's refreshed Galaxy Fold comes with several changes that make both the display and hinge much stronger than before. Aside from its unique form-factor, the Galaxy Fold is packed with features that you would expect from a premium flagship device. You get a massive 7.3-inch Dynamic AMOLED display, Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset, 12GB of RAM, 512GB built-in storage, six cameras, and two batteries to deliver impressive battery life.
