According to the Wall Street Journal today, Samsung is officially delaying the Galaxy Fold launch in the US until further notice following some major display issues that popped up last week. Yikes.
Originally, the Samsung Galaxy Fold was set to launch in the US on April 26th, but it’s certainly looking like the company won’t hit that date. WSJ cites sources which claim that Samsung is delaying the Galaxy Fold until “at least next month.” Samsung hasn’t officially confirmed the news, but given last week’s display issues and the reveal that its launch in China has been delayed, there’s no reason to think this isn’t true.
It’s unclear when Samsung plans to reschedule the US launch of the Galaxy Fold, but the report says that it is “expected” in the coming weeks. A firm date hasn’t been set by Samsung, however, as the company is still awaiting the results of its ongoing investigation into Galaxy Fold display problems.
These display issues first popped up with four different reviewers that had been using the Galaxy Fold for less than two days. While the exact reasons for the display failures differed, some relating to user error, it’s still been a huge cause for concern with this new $2,000 smartphone.
