TechnologyYou can’t even buy the Galaxy Fold yet and Samsung is already teasing a better foldable phone
After all this time, Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is finally about to be released
The Galaxy Fold was supposed to hit stores on April 26th, but horrible design flaws and quality control issues discovered in the weeks leading up to the launch forced Samsung to delay the phone. The company ultimately decided to cancel the release and went back to the drawing board to fix the severe design issues that were spotted. In the months that followed, Samsung kept teasing that a Galaxy Fold launch announcement was on the way, and we finally received one a few weeks ago. At the time, Samsung explained everything it did to fix the phone, and now it looks like the Galaxy Fold is finally about to be released.
The Galaxy Fold failed to give Samsung the triumph in wanted this year. Making foldable phones is no easy feat and Samsung has been teasing these devices for years, to the point where everyone following the business was expecting the Korean giant to be at the forefront of foldable phone innovation. Samsung was also the first major smartphone vendor to unveil a foldable phone. Sadly, for the Galaxy Fold, it was also the first company to have to deal with the harsh reality of actually making a durable folding phone.
The Galaxy Fold is now five months behind schedule and it’s finally being released during the worst possible time of the year. New iPhones arrive every September, followed by a slew of high-end Android handsets. The Galaxy Fold, with its sky-high price tag, doesn’t seem to belong in this crowd. Samsung needs this win though; it needs to be able to tell the world that it fixed and shipped its first foldable device, so it can then begin to focus on the next-gen foldables. Incredibly, however, it looks like Samsung couldn’t even wait that long to move on.
This could be our first look at the Galaxy Fold 2
As we get closer to the (supposed) release of Samsung's (supposedly) fixed Galaxy Fold handset, a funny thing keeps happening. Not only do foldable smartphones seem to be a serious fixture within Samsung's long-term product roadmap, such that the company keeps patenting one foldable design after another, but we might now have our first sense of what the Galaxy Fold 2 could look like. It seems that Samsung applied for three new foldable phone design patents two weeks ago.
Long-time Samsung insider Ice Universe posted the following image on twitter, which teases a Samsung W20 5G device that appears to be a foldable handset:
We don’t have a better image for you at this time and it’s unclear what this W20 is, or why Samsung would advertise it already. But it sure looks like a foldable phone.
Last year, Samsung soft-launched the Galaxy Fold during the company’s early November developer conference. But Samsung never showed the phone’s full design or revealed its name. It’s one thing to give such treatment to a first-gen device intended to kick off a foldable revolution, but quite another to do it every year. Therefore, it’s too early to tell whether Samsung will unveil the Fold 2 later this fall.
You can once again pre-register to buy the Samsung Galaxy Fold
After a more than five-month delay, it looks like Samsung, true to its word, is on track to launch the Galaxy Fold this September. As of Monday, the company is once again allowing consumers in the US to pre-register to purchase its first foldable smartphone. The fact Samsung is allowing individuals to pre-register to buy the Fold suggests we'll see the phone finally make its way to consumers sometime later this month. To be clear, pre-registering to purchase a device is not the same pre-ordering one. In this case, you're not putting down any money before the phone is available to buy.
On the other hand, we have a bunch of Samsung patents that prove the company has been working on all sorts of foldable devices, including one that might look. Also, the company is said to be considering merging the Galaxy S and Note lines as soon as next year, in the second half of the year.

Arsenal, Frimpong talks about Nasri's abuse: "He told me he could buy me"
Emmanuel Frimpong talks about how Samir Nasri was treating him when the two players were playing at Arsenal.
Frimpong, who made his debut with Arsenal in 2011 and is now a very young football retiree at just 27 years old, remembers the years he was intimate with Samir Nasri, a player who martyred him,
Frimpong recalls being kicked out in his second league game against Liverpool and the Gunners went down; Nasri did not fail to identify the midfielder as guilty and tell him in the locker room at the end of the meeting.
"After the match everyone came into the locker room and Arsene [Wenger] was silent, you know, he did not speak, then Nasri stood up in front of everyone and said we lost the match because of me, "recollected Frimpong. "OK, I can understand that, but I was wondering: Why would a professional do this to a young player in that kind of moment, especially since I was playing, I guess, my second game?"
When Nasri went later to Manchester City, Frimpong breathed a sigh of relief, but Nasri had not forgotten it. After a social media hustle, Alex Song called Frimpong while he was on the Arsenal training ground to give him a phone, while an angry Nasri was waiting for him on the other end of the line. . "I picked up the phone and it was him on the phone who was threatening me," Frimpong said. "I told him," I'm not one of those players who's scared of you. If you want us to fix that, we can do it as men. "
" You can ask Aaron Ramsey, you can ask Jack Wilshere. I have never disrespected anyone. But for me, the truth is that I never liked Nasri and I will never love this guy. Even if he gives me five billion dollars, I still will not love him. "
Frimpong and Nasri were going to hang on one last time when Arsenal and City faced each other in early 2012, the Frenchman consolidating his bad reputation with his former teammate. "During the match, he told me he could buy me," said Frimpong. "That's how stupid this guy is. He probably could have done it because he had millions, but that's not respectful to say. I think he was a bully, I feel he did not know his responsibilities as a senior player to help young players. "
After failing to consolidate his place at Arsenal, Frimpong would then play in Russia, Sweden and Cyprus before hanging up in March 2019 due to persistent injuries
Leak says Samsung’s next foldable phone might not look anything like the Galaxy Fold .
The first Samsung foldable phone is available in stores in select markets, and while it may represent a valiant effort from the company — hey, someone had to make one of these for us to realize the technology just isn’t there yet — it’s still a phone you should avoid. No matter how careful you might be with it, the Galaxy Fold is just too fragile, and you may end up ruining that foldable display without too much effort. Samsung isn’t going toSamsung isn’t going to give up on making foldable phones just because of the initial Fold failures, though, and the Korean vendor is already expected to launch a Galaxy Fold 2 at some point next year. A brand new leak indicates the device might also deliver a completely different design.
