Samsung executive says Galaxy Fold is ‘ready to hit the market’


Last updated: June 19th, 2019 at 10:53 UTC+02:00

Samsung has still not confirmed when it will launch its first foldable smartphone. The Galaxy Fold was supposed to be released on April 26 in the United States. Samsung had to delay the launch due to some issues with the device that were pointed out by reviewers who had received test units.

The company took all of the test units back and promised to address the issues. Subsequent reports detailed the changes that Samsung made to the Galaxy Fold. A Samsung executive has now said that the Galaxy Fold is “ready to hit the market.”

Galaxy Fold release date still remains a mystery

Samsung Display Vice President Kim Seong-cheol said during this speech at The Korean Information Display Society that “Most of the display problems have been ironed out, and the Galaxy Fold is ready to hit the market.” Samsung Display is the affiliate company that’s providing the foldable displays for this device. Kim also mentioned that he has high expectations for the device. “The Galaxy Fold, when released, will receive a lot of attention in the market,” he added.

His comments bring us no closer to finding out exactly when the Galaxy Fold is going to be launched. There have been so many contradictory reports about when the Galaxy Fold will be out. It was suggested that a media briefing would be held later this month and the device would be released in July. However, a Samsung official cited in a report last week suggested that nothing has been done to prepare for a media event this month.

That’s not to say that Samsung still can’t release the device in July but all of this contradictory information is only adding to the confusion. Hopefully, Samsung will be able to provide a clear roadmap for the Galaxy Fold in the near future.
