The launch of Samsung Galaxy Fold, a first-of-its-kind foldable smartphone, was delayed for public release, after several journalists reported that their review units experienced screen failure after just a few days.
The spokesperson wrote, “To fully evaluate this feedback and run further internal tests, we have decided to delay the release of the Galaxy Fold. We plan to announce the release date in the coming weeks.” After inspection, the device’s issues “could be associated with impact on the top and bottom exposed areas of the hinge,” and additionally, in one instance, “substances found inside the device affected the display performance.”
The Galaxy Fold is priced starting at $1,980. It has a unique folding design, with a smaller touchscreen on the outside, and a larger tablet-sized touchscreen on the inside that’s revealed when you open the device like a book.
