    It seems to be the direction they are going in according to some leakers.

    As fold devices get cheaper which they will In time I expect it will be the case. They are going all in on the fold and even said to be bringing out a cheaper fold so it's clear its in their plans
    According to some leakers the Note has been leaving us for years. Even if they get cheaper that doesn't mean they will eliminate their current flagship. That only works if a folding device becomes mainstream. We are not even close at this point.

    Agree. As neat (and it IS neat) as the Fold 2 is it would need a lot before mainstream folks would be interested,

    lower price
    lower price
    did I mention...lower price
    lighter weight
    the same durability as other current
    flagships
    flagship level cameras

    The current device is a neat "This is what we can do today." kind-of-thing and it's easily good enough to be a usable product. It will be very interesting to see what Samsung and others do with this sector over the next few years.


    It is exciting.

    Yes...it looks nice and I was almost onboard. There are a couple of things that still bug me including the hinge and the crease. I'll probably be in for Gen 3 or 4 but I don't think we will see a lower price by then.

    I think Sammy will offer a couple of models simultaneously. I'm imagining a flagship level and something below it...like the Note 20. I used to wonder about the current strategy but it makes sense in a way. Bring more people into the Note universe with the lower priced Note 20 and when they're ready to upgrade many of them will opt for the higher priced flagship. I wonder if Sammy will do the same thing with the Fold.

    I don't think there will be a significant enough difference in price between a high and a low. A lot of peeps were unhappy with the base Note 20 price. I guess time will tell.

    It's shipping with FedEx overnight so you have till late Tuesday to ship for Wednesday delivery. Assuming you ordered early enough for the first batch. Mine is just label created so won't be picked up by FedEx until late Tuesday anyway.
    Mine says shipped BUT they got my address partially wrong I was already in contact with a lady in Executive Relations about another matter. She said should could fix it. Here’s to hoping she can

    It's certainly novel. I like how Nova handles it. My layout which I copied from my Note 20U slid right over and works for both screens without tinkering:

    Why does the screen look like that when open?

    So I ended up breaking down and buying it but I just started playing it and I found a deal breaker. That stupid punch hole cuts into YouTube videos. The main reason I bought this was for watching content. Requesting a return.

    Very nice. I got the bronze galaxy watch 3 when it first came out. Now it matches my bronze z fold 2 lol. Thought about getting the bronze buds live. At first I didn't want that color in buds but I said why not since the other 2 items are same color lol.

    Can't wait to get mine. My Samsung Kevlar case doesn't get delivered until the 23rd but my Fold2 should get delivered today. So I won't take it out of the house until at least next Wednesday. I did get tpu protectors for the back, outer, and inner screens but I probably won't apply the one to the inner screen as it'd likely bubble after opening and closing the screen a few times. I did also get some microfiber phone bags so I'm hoping I can keep it pristine for the duration. Quite excited!
    Oh nice. I still haven't ordered a case lol. I won't do Samsung cases cause I don't like the only cover the back look. Hope you like it tho. Cases I'm looking at from UAG and Spigen looks like won't be available to order for a couple more weeks or over a month. Hopefully sooner. Seen some on ebay but they talking mid October into November lol.

    Oh no. I'm sorry to hear that. I guess it don't bother me since I'm used to the hole since my z flip and note10 plus has it. I hope you find something you like.
