Samsung tipped to start selling Galaxy Fold 2 before Galaxy S11 series

30 December 2019 0

Samsung is reported to announce next-gen clamshell foldable phone Galaxy Fold 2 alongside the Galaxy S11 series in February 2020. It is added that despite the official announcement at the same event, Samsung will start selling Galaxy Fold 2 before the Galaxy S11 series. The report is coming from Yonhap, a Korean publication, citing industry sources.

The same sources have also revealed that Samsung is currently in talks with three Korean carriers for the Galaxy Fold 2 release. It seems like Samsung to ensure that buyers have 5G connectivity options to choose from. As mentioned in the beginning, it will be announced along with the Galaxy S11 series (apparently called Galaxy S20) at the annual Galaxy Unpacked event. The event will be held in the United States like it has been the trend so far.

Samsung is known for announcing new flagships at the event and start their sales after a few weeks. It is reported to change that with the Galaxy Fold 2 as it is said to go on sale right after the event. The goal behind selling the new foldable phone earlier than usual is to compete with other foldable options. Samsung does not want any competitor to have a window for attracting potential buyers.

About 10 days ago, we came across a leak that showed real-life Galaxy Fold 2 images. The phone was shown with a design resembling the Motorola RAZR (2019) which will be one of its closest competitors. It will have a clamshell-like folding mechanism which means the bigger display will be on the inside. Samsung is expected to price the next foldable phone at less than $1,000 which will be a lot cheaper than the current-gen $2,000 Galaxy Fold.
