The Samsung Galaxy Fold will be delayed as reported in The Wall Street Journal that Samsung won’t release the Galaxy Fold until “at least next month” due to issues with review units that technology reporters have revealed. A string of reviewers found problems with the display, with it failing for a number of reasons.
Over the weekend, the company postponed launch events in China, and it looked increasingly likely that the device would not go on sale on Friday.
Given the multiple reports of screen failure, some due to reviewers attempting to peel off a protective plastic layer, Samsung’s Galaxy Fold launch delay feels like the best option for the company. While Samsung is aiming to be first to the market with its $1,980 foldable phone, these are critical hardware problems that the company will need to investigate fully.
We will keep updated on any news of the new launch date.
