Starting September 27, U.S. consumers will be able to get their hands on the Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone.
The device will be available in Cosmos Black and Space Silver at select AT&T stores as well as select Best Buy and Samsung Experience Store retail locations. Both will offer AT&T and Unlocked by Samsung versions of the device.
The Fold has been slightly redesigned to make it more durable than the first version. Changes include a screen protector that doesn’t look like you’re supposed to peel it off.
Despite the changes, concerns about the $1980 device’s durability not only persist, but are reasonable.
