    Galaxy Fold release may just be a few weeks away now

    There has been endless speculation about the Galaxy Fold release ever since Samsung canceled the initial launch on April 26. The company had to make that decision due to some obvious issues with the device that needed fixing.

    Samsung has been working to address the issues and reports suggest that it has been able to make the required changes. The company is yet to confirm, though, when it's going to release the world's first foldable smartphone. A new report out of South Korea suggests that the Galaxy Fold might come out next month.

    Galaxy Fold release might take place next month

    Samsung mobile CEO DJ Koh had said four weeks ago that the company will confirm the release date for the Galaxy Fold soon. There hasn't been an update since. A recent report had claimed that we won't be getting the device in June. Meanwhile, Best Buy has canceled all pre-orders and Samsung did the same on May 31.

    There's a new report out of South Korea with comments from DJ Koh. If it's anything to go by, Samsung will finally release the Galaxy Fold in July. The company is also expected to hold a press event later this month prior to rolling out the device in July. It will presumably detail the changes made to the Galaxy Fold at the media briefing.

    Samsung may have been in a rush initially to beat Huawei to market with a fully functional foldable smartphone. However, with the Chinese giant's ongoing troubles, Samsung has more breathing space. That could be why those reports about a May/June launch didn't pan out. The company may have wanted to release it not long after April 26.

    With Huawei caught up in a trade war between the US and China, Samsung can take the additional time to be absolutely certain that the Galaxy Fold won't run into any problems again once it hits the market. It may also be taking its time to perfect the software. We reported earlier this week that the company has tested almost a dozen firmware for the Galaxy Fold just last month.
