The Samsung Galaxy Fold, a $2,000 foldable device that was originally built so poorly it broke in the hands of reviewers, forcing Samsung to delay its release by months before still pushing forward to sell it with fixes, has sold a million times. If we follow this year's Friday release schedule, the S11 family should be announced between February 11-18, depending on whose tip you want to believe, and unleashed on our unsuspecting heads on Friday, March 6, or earlier. After its release in April, many users gave feedback on problems with the Galaxy Fold.
The update is taking place under firmware version N97FXXU1BSL7, although we still don't know the exact weight of it.
Following the debacle, several major carriers (and eventually Samsung) canceled pre-orders for the new device.
While speaking at TechCrunch Disrupt in Berlin, Samsung Electronics President Young Sohn was asked about sales of the device. Samsung canceled its original launch plans and went back to the drawing board, strengthening the phone's design and revising parts of it to make it less prone to breakage.
It's unclear if the comment was intentionally made to stir up excitement about the device.
Previous estimates from October claimed that Galaxy Fold sales hovered around 500,000.
Android 10 is the latest version of the Google operating system, arrived a few months ago, and distributed progressively in the terminals of this 2019. Though it does offer good performance and a sharp-looking screen, it is also highly fragile and the price tag is too lofty for most potential buyers.
Nonetheless, phone manufacturers are continuing to pursue the foldable model.
Following the success of Galaxy S10, South Korean smartphone giant Samsung is betting big on its next flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S11.
