After launching Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung is now gearing up for its next-gen foldable smartphone dubbed Galaxy Z Fold 2. As the name suggests, it is going to be a successor to the first-gen or company’s original foldable smartphone. A couple of days ago, we reported the complete spec sheet of the smartphone. Well, it looks like we now have the pre-order details along with the release date for the device.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 pre-order will last for a week!
According to a new report by SamMobile, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will see itself releasing on September 18. It is worth noting that the smartphone will indeed launch on September 1 at the second-iteration of Galaxy Unpacked 2020. We expect the smartphone to be available in the global market on a similar timeline. Apart from the release date, we now also have some information on the pre-order registration. Well, the upcoming foldable smartphone will see its pre-booking registration from September 11 to September 17.
Considering that the release date is September 18, the early adopters will get the smartphone pretty soon. With that said, the pre-booking window is tight and that makes sense considering the device targets the niche consumer. Furthermore, the device is going to be ultra-premium offering and a week timeline should be more than enough. The device is expected to arrive with a price tag of $2,000.
