Samsung will release its Galaxy Fold device in September, following successful debuts in South Korea and the United Kingdom.

What’s going on: Samsung announced Monday that the device will hit stores with an AT&T version and unlocked version, according to The Verge.

Where: You can buy the device at select AT&T stores and Best Buy locations. It’s also available online.

When: September 27.

Price: $1,980

Why it matters: The debut is a long-time coming. Questions erupted about the device when it originally launched earlier this year. Samsung announced in April it would delay the Galaxy Fold’s launch to improve the device, which had multiple issues upon its debut, as reported by the Deseret News. Multiple reviews (like those from The Verge and BBC News) reported the Fold would snap in half.
