T-Mobile has no plans to sell the Galaxy Fold when it’s re-released in September
Lol, T-Mobile doesn’t want any of that noise.
Well, it’s official. Samsung’s folding smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, is being re-released in September, but T-Mobile is making it known that they don’t want any part of it. The Verge reached out to the company and was basically told they don’t have any plans selling the phone again. Ouch, that’s a punch to the gut.
To be fair, T-Mobile wasn’t very direct with its response. They essentially told The Verge a pretty cookie-cutter response:
T-Mobile will not carry the Galaxy Fold because we already offer customers a wide range of the latest smartphones. Please reach out to Samsung for any further inquiries.
Honestly, who can blame T-Mobile from distancing themselves from the Galaxy Fold fiasco? The phone was literally put through the wringer with negative coverage and extremely poor review scores. Like, it was so bad that Samsung shut down the whole operation until the phone was fixed. Yea, not a good look.
When The Verge pressed AT&T for comment as to if they had any plans selling the Galaxy Fold, they didn’t have anything official to share but hinted they still plan on working with Samsung.
Samsung plans on re-releasing the Galaxy Fold in September, but there’s no specific date yet. Apple usually releases their new iPhones that same month, so Samsung has a lot going against them. This news from T-Mobile surely doesn’t help. Who knows, let’s see what unfolds. Extreme pun intended.
