Breaking: Galaxy Fold release date will be announced soon, says CEO


Last updated: May 9th, 2019 at 09:16 UTC+02:00

April 26 had previously been confirmed as the Galaxy Fold release date. However, Samsung’s first foldable smartphone had to be delayed due to some issues. While the company recently reminded pre-order customers that they can cancel their orders if they so desire, Samsung mobile CEO DJ Koh has now said that the Galaxy Fold release date will be announced soon.

Samsung had to delay the launch after some review units suffered problems. It was due to user error in most cases. However, the issues did reveal that Samsung needed to do more in order to prevent foreign substances from lodging beneath the display. It appears to have addressed the issues.

Galaxy Fold release date will be confirmed soon

Samsung’s mobile boss DJ Koh confirmed to The Korea Herald that the company has reviewed the defect which had caused the problem and that it will reach a conclusion about the device’s launch today or tomorrow. This means that a confirmed release date should be announced in the very near future.

Koh was asked whether it would be possible for the company to launch the Galaxy Fold in the United States within May. While stopping short of providing an actual date, Koh said “We will not be too late.” This suggests that a May launch will indeed be possible.

The company has completed the internal inspection of the samples that had developed the issues. It has strengthened the durability of the exposed areas on the hinge and reduced the gap between the display and the bezel. This will prevent external substances from entering into the device and causing problems for the display.
