The Galaxy Z Fold2 remains available in the US, contrary to reports. Samsung has not stopped selling it on its US website. However, no US carriers have stock of Samsung's foldable smartphone in either colour, possibly in anticipation of the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Currently, the only way to get your hands on a Galaxy Z Fold2 in the US is to purchase an unlocked handset.

Yesterday, 9to5Google reported that Samsung had stopped selling the Galaxy Z Fold2 in the US, just nine months after its release. As the screenshot below shows, Samsung's US website prevented people from buying the Galaxy Z Fold2 and returned a message when someone attempted to do so. The reference to the Galaxy Fold suggested that Samsung had redirected the Galaxy Z Fold2 product page in error.

In truth, the Galaxy Z Fold2 was never 'gone from Samsung's website', as some website's suggested. The Galaxy Z Fold2 remained live on Samsung's US website, just not its 'buy' page. Samsung has now corrected the error though, and is selling the Galaxy Z Fold2 again. However, the Galaxy Z Fold2 remains cheaper on Amazon (affiliate link).

No US carriers have Galaxy Z Fold2 stock in Mystic Black or Mystic Bronze, though. So, US carriers may have been running down their stock levels in anticipation of the Galaxy Z Fold 3. Conversely, Samsung still sells older flagships like the Galaxy Note 9, Galaxy S9 and the Galaxy S10e. Hence, Samsung has done nothing to suggest that it will stop selling the Galaxy Z Fold2 when it releases its successor.
