The Samsung Galaxy Fold mobile device is displayed during an unveiling event in New York on April 15.

Samsung Electronics Co.’s Galaxy Fold will go on sale Sept. 6 in its home market of South Korea, following a months-long delay caused by the discovery of a severe defect in the original design.

The Galaxy Fold, a $1,980 luxury Android device that opens like a book, was originally scheduled to go on sale in April, but it was delayed after multiple early tests, including by Bloomberg News, found the screen to have severe reliability issues. Samsung said in July that the phone would relaunch in September but had not previously provided an exact date.
