Samsung Galaxy Fold To Be Delayed Further, Might Launch After August
Samsung introduced its first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold at the Unpacked event back in the month of February alongside the Galaxy S10 series. It was revealed that the sales for the device will start from the 26th of April. However, early review units of the handsets started breaking and malfunctioning for reviewers. This led to the company recalling all review units and release a statement that the launch date of the Galaxy Fold has been delayed. It has been over two months now, and no official re-launch date for the smartphone has been provided by Samsung. Now, a senior company executive has told a Korean media outlet that the launch is being delayed further, as no progress has been made on the device.
Galaxy Fold Delay
As mentioned above, the Samsung Galaxy Fold has been delayed once again in hitting the market. While it was being speculated that the smartphone will be reintroduced in the month of July, a senior Samsung executive has revealed that is not the case. He claims that if a launch was scheduled within a month from now, an announcement would have been already made. It has also been revealed that no progress has been made since the recall of the device in the month of April. It may insinuate that the company has not found a real solution for the hinge problem with the handset, or it hasn’t progressed with a new launch date. With the latest news of a delay, the Samsung Galaxy Fold may be launched after the Galaxy Note 10; which is speculated to launch in the month of August.

The Galaxy Fold faced issues with its screen and hinge in the month of April 2019. Some reviewers inadvertently peeled off a protective covering (which acted as an adhesive), leading to screen breakage. Others had issues arising because of the material (dust and debris) that entered the gap in the phone’s hinge. Even though the company previously claimed that it has successfully eliminated all the problems with the device, a statement regarding the launch date is still awaited.
