When the Samsung Galaxy Fold was recalled to fix some of the durability issues in its design, it appeared that the redesign took longer than we thought. This resulted in carriers and retailers canceling pre-orders of the handset. For those who are still eagerly anticipating the release of the Galaxy Fold, there could be some good news on that front.

According to a report from Bloomberg, it looks like Samsung has apparently completed the redesign of the handset and in the final stages of getting ready for production of the phone for commercial use. Unfortunately, there is still no official date on when this redesigned Galaxy Fold will be released, but the good news is that at least we are now one step closer.

Back in June, Samsung Display VP Kim Seong-Cheol revealed that the handset is now ready for launch, but stopped short of actually mentioning a release date. This report seems to line up with Kim’s previous comments and hopefully, we’ll hear more in the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime, there have also been rumors suggesting that Samsung actually has a second-gen Galaxy Fold in the works and that it could launch this year as well, although we have to wonder if that might be a bit premature given that we still have no idea how the market will react to a foldable phone and if many are willing to pay the high prices just to own one.
