Samsung later recovered all review units that it had sent out and confirmed that it would improve the protection around the display to prevent foreign substances from lodging beneath it. So it;s not going to be long before customers can purchase Samsung;s $2,000 foldable smartphone. And while they get a very unique device for the money, we believe that Samsung should go the extra mile for Galaxy Fold customers in the software department.The $2,000 price tag for the Galaxy Fold may seem too high when looked at in isolation. However, add some context and it doesn 't look too crazy anymore. As we have already discussed before, the Galaxy Fold is actually quite the opposite of being overpriced. Samsung is also aware that it needs to provide additional services to customers so that they get the most bang for their buck. That 's why there has been talk of a concierge like after sales service for the Galaxy Fold.

Google;s latest numbers show continued strong growth for Android, but we;re not sure which part of the market is expanding. It;s likely the budget category and entry level devices in developing countries. Between September 2015 and May 2017, Google added 400 million new Android users. Fast forward two years, and there are 500 million more. So, growth isn;t accelerating, but you wouldn;t expect it anymore. While most Android users are plugged into Google 's services and seeing Google 's ads, that 's not the case in one of the world 's biggest markets: China. Google 's decision a decade ago to pull out of China means it has no presence on those phones. Android is open source, so there 's nothing stopping OEMs from launching devices in China.

But over the weekend Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and U.S. Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer told Trump they thought China was backing away from those promises, officials familiar with the negotiations tell TIME.
