Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone launch delayed beyond July

Samsung had announced its first foldable smartphone — Samsung Galaxy Fold earlier this year. Just a few days before the phone was set to go on sale, it’s launch was postponed. This step was taken after reviewers pointed out issues related to the phone’s display.

Till now, it was believed that the smartphone could get launched in July and last week, the company’s official also hinted about the same. But now, the company has announced that the Galaxy Fold smartphone is not launching in July.


Earlier, it was said that the South Korean giant will be holding a media briefing very soon and during the event will announce a release date for the handset. However, the company’s spokesperson has denied that there’s a media briefing planned.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold was originally supposed to release to the public on April 26th in select major markets, including the US, China, and South Korea. But after reviewers complained about the phone’s display getting damaged after just one or two days of usage, the launch was postponed.
