Samsung has affirmed it will postpone the dispatch of its first foldable, the Galaxy Fold, which was due to release in a couple of days.
A week ago, a few people detailed that their Galaxy Fold screens had turned out to be totally unusable in insignificant number of days. These issues were likely brought about by either the analysts stripping a defensive layer on the presentation that shouldn’t have been evacuated or a deformity that perhaps enabled flotsam and jetsam to get captured between the pivot and the screen, which prompted a failing showcase.
In a statement, Samsung detailed what happened and what it plans to do now:
“While many reviewers shared with us the vast potential they see, some also showed us how the device needs further improvements that could ensure the best possible user experience. To fully evaluate this feedback and run further internal tests, we have decided to delay the release of the Galaxy Fold. We plan to announce the release date in the coming weeks.
Initial findings from the inspection of reported issues on the display showed that they could be associated with an impact on the top and bottom exposed areas of the hinge. There was also an instance where substances found inside the device affected the display performance.
We will take measures to strengthen the display protection. We will also enhance the guidance on care and use of the display including the protective layer so that our customers get the most out of their Galaxy Fold.”
