Samsung Admits Galaxy Fold Launch Was An Embarrassment

The non-release of the Samsung Galaxy Fold is something everyone is well aware of right now and with the company saying that it will be able to launch it later this year it’s still possible we will see it sooner rather than later.

While we wait for that attentions have turned to use what went wrong with the initial launch with co-CEO DJ Koh admitting that he tried to get the phone on sale “before it was ready.”

Speaking to a group of reporters and quoted by The Independent, Koh admitted that the device’s situation was “embarrassing” following the discovery that a number of review units had failed during testing.

The Galaxy Fold was initially planned to go on sale shortly after reviewers had time with it, but once displays started to exhibit problems that launch was postponed.

The Galaxy Fold was supposed to be, and may still turn out to be, the first foldable phone launch of the year back in April. No new release date has been announced although there is some belief an announcement may be made during the Galaxy Note 10’s own outing next month.

Koh did at least say that Samsung has been able to work out “all of the issues and all of the problems” and that 2,000 devices have been put through their paces. However Koh says that the Galaxy Fold still isn’t quite ready and that we should give his company “more time” to get it right.
