Samsung is to release the Galaxy Fold in Taiwan soon
Samsung will release the Galaxy Fold in Taiwan soon. It is to release the foldable phone to this new market some time "in January 2020", despite reportedly stating that it would not do so at all earlier this year. However, it will now join a number of Asian regions, including China, Indonesia, Japan and South Korea, in supplying this ground-breaking product.
This Fold is thought to cost 68888 new Taiwanese dollars (TWD), which equates to about US$2287. By contrast, it costs closer to $2000 in other countries. However, customers in its new market will apparently get a leather case free with every purchase.
In any case, numerous Taiwanese consumers may be glad to finally see the Galaxy Fold's arrival. However, they may lose interest in the face of a putative new generation of the phone. It is currently thought to have a clam-shell form factor, which is at complete odds with the flexible-tablet nature of the original. The design to take the lead in terms of foldable devices may be an interesting point to follow in 2020.
