Samsung Still Doesn’t Have a Release Date for the Galaxy Fold

Posted on June 10, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Android, Hardware with 3 Comments

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold launch has been quite a mess for the phone maker. When it first launched the device along with its new line of Galaxy S devices, it built a lot of hype around the device back in February. The company was all ready for an April launch, but things quickly started to go downhill after early reviewers of the device found a massive problem with the folding display.

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold had a problem which caused the folding display of the device to break. Shortly after, the phone maker started cancelling pre-orders of the $1980 device, with retailers following shortly after.

And after all the cancellations and delays, Samsung still isn’t certain about the release of the Galaxy Fold. The company told CNET that it will announce the release timing of the device “in the coming weeks.” And that’s very worrying to hear, considering Samsung has already significantly delayed the product. What’s more, Samsung will only announce the new release date in the coming weeks, and it could be months before the product is actually ready.

Even when Samsung does release the Galaxy Fold, people will still have major concerns around the reliability of the folding display. The debacle has already caused a lot of questions around the product’s quality, and Samsung will have to work really hard to convince customers otherwise.

    And Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead.


    For those too young to get the reference, this was a recurring story on Saturday Night Live after Franco's death parodying the major networks' recurring coverage of Franco's illness with daily reports that he was still alive - a "news" story on the lack of news.


    When Samsung has a date, that'll be news. Saying "We have no news" is not news.

    They better cancel gen1 and focus on making gen2 where all the reliability issues are fixed and non-sense stuff gone. This thing already became PR disaster and no need to make things worse than they are now.

    Galaxy Flawed. A prototype for $2000, plastic screen and extremely fragile. I am not that insane to be Samsung's guinea pig.
