Samsung's first foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold, was an absolute failure. It cost too much ($2,000) and literally broke before it was supposed to launch last spring. Samsung reinforced structural weak points and re-launched the Fold in September 2019, but it was too late. The screens were still too fragile and the device too bulky.
If Samsung's new foldable can compete with the Razr — which we think looks hot, feels good, and stirs up nostalgia — then it might not flop.
