Samsung will now finally announce a new launch date for the Galaxy Fold by tomorrow. According to CEO Dong-Jin Koh, the company, “has reviewed the defect caused from substances [entering the device] and we will reach a conclusion [about the launch] today or tomorrow.”
Samsung says that they have conducted internal testing for the reported issues and are making changes to prevent them, specifically mentioning that they reinforced the hinge and reduced the gap between the bezel and protective coating, which should prevent debris from getting into the phone.
Samsung’s ill-fated Galaxy Fold was originally supposed to go out on sale on April 26th, but then the Korean phone maker had to postpone launch events, saying that it needed more time to fix the issues and that the device needed further improvements before it was made available to the public.
They eventually had to recall all Galaxy Fold units to investigate the issue in hopes of resolving the dilemma.
We are all well aware by now of the controversy surrounding the Samsung Galaxy Fold. It all started when several review units reportedly broke down and stopped working.
Reviewers discovered that the device was too fragile, apparently because of a faulty hinge that caused a screen gap allowing debris to fall in, causing bulges, tears, flickering and all sorts of issues.
The protective film that came with the phone was not supposed to be removed and was also one of the causes behind the break down of the device for several reviewers.
Hopefully, we now won’t be seeing the device fail on us after paying $2000 for it.
