Earlier this month, Samsung started selling the fixed Galaxy Fold in select markets after a significant delay from the originally planned launch schedule. The newer version of the luxurious foldable phone is selling at such an impressive rate that Samsung had to make adjustments to its second batch in order to meet the high demand. And now, a new SamMobile report is claiming that the next-generation Samsung foldable phone will be launched globally.
It means the next foldable phone from Samsung, presumably called Galaxy Fold 2, will be sold in even more countries and regions than the Galaxy Fold. The current generation smartphone is available in only select markets like the United States, the United Kingdom, and South Korea. If you are lucky, you can get it in a few European countries as well. But for the next generation, Samsung is said to be ready to go big with the release.
The actual idea behind limiting the Galaxy Fold availability was to gauge the customer response and feedback. Samsung had no idea about how many people would be interested in buying a foldable phone for daily usage and as a result, it did not want to end up with a lot of unsold stock and incurring huge losses. With sales going great and a lot of feedback from users as well as tech critics, Samsung now has a better idea of the demand as well as requirements. It also knows what changes are needed to be made for it to become more usable in one's day to day life.
An earlier report mentioned that Samsung's Galaxy Fold successor will be a cheaper device in comparison to the current offering. This will surely encourage more people to buy the device once it becomes available. The new device is said to have a clamshell-like folding mechanism and a total display size of 6.7-inches. It will also turn into a small square-shape when in the folded state which will make it easier to carry around in one's pocket.
