Samsung said Wednesday night that the delayed $2,000 Galaxy Fold will go on sale in Korea on Friday and be available in the U.S. "in the coming weeks." Samsung had promised in July that the phone would ship this month, following design changes.

Why it matters: Samsung and other phone makers are hoping foldable will usher in a new era for the smartphone market, but so far things have gotten off to a rocky start.
