Samsung has announced that it will release the Galaxy Fold to the US market once and for all on September 27, 2019. However, the devices are only to be made available in various physical locations run by certain businesses and chains. They are AT&T, Best Buy and Samsung Experience stores.

Samsung has announced that its new Galaxy Fold device will become available to US customers on September 27, 2019. However, it appears that potential buyers will need to be within driving distance of a store that will stock the flexible phone. The OEM has announced that it will only be available in "select" Samsung Experience, Best Buy and AT&T outlets.

In other words, carrier-unlocked models will be sold in just 2 of these options. Those who wish to purchase their new foldable phone will need to check samsung.com to make sure they are within reach of a retail location with them on hand. Then again, anyone in the US who does obtain a Galaxy Fold through these routes will gain access to a Premier Service associated with the product.

This facility will apparently enable a customer to contact a "Samsung Concierge" who can offer advice on any aspect of the groundbreaking device, its packaging, features and functions included. Such a specialist can apparently be contacted in a number of different ways, including video chat via the Samsung Members App, which is found in the One UI system by default.

I became a professional writer and editor shortly after graduation. My degrees are in biomedical sciences; however, they led to some experience in the biotech area, which convinced me of its potential to revolutionize our health, environment and lives in general. This developed into an all-consuming interest in more aspects of tech over time: I can never write enough on the latest electronics, gadgets and innovations. My other interests include imaging, astronomy, and streaming all the things. Oh, and coffee.
