Samsung Galaxy Fold, a uniquely designed phone that has recently faced delays in formal launch due to display problems, should finally be debited in June. However, a new report from South Korea claims that due to some unspecified improvements that will last longer than planned, the phone is likely to skip the scheduled launch date. The new development comes a few days after Samsung announced that it solved the main issues that tortured Galaxy Fold initially.
New report by South Korean news agency Yonhap News, quoted by SamMobile, claims that Samsung set up Galaxy Fold launch in June following the deferment of the first slider due to display problems, and some hardware changes are likely to suppress the previous schedule, the Galaxy Fold network tests after fixing major disadvantages related to its folding design were previously announced to be held in the middle of May. However, given the new report, the company will take more time to test the hardware.
The report says an anonymous industrial official who points out that repairing components, including shielding films and parts of Galaxy Fold, is taking away much time.
Having said that, Samsung is still in a position to publicly announce a new release schedule for several weeks. It is believed that the release schedule will be published by next month. Moreover, the company will most likely first bring Galaxy Fold into South Korea – instead of planning its American debut.
Recall, Samsung discovered in February Galaxy Fold with a 7.3-inch Infinity Flex screen. The phone should have come to the US market in April, though it did not happen because of problems that even occurred in the early review units.
Galaxy Fold is not a lonely folding phone that is expected this year. Huawei Mate X, which debuted just a few days after the Samsung model in February, is also based on a folding factor. However, consider American conflicts that make Huawei's business more difficult, and Samsung is still likely to have the advantage of competing.
