Samsung’s folding phone “ready to hit the market”
Samsung’s troublesome $2000 folding phone is reportedly “ready to hit the market” after missing its original release date due to issues with its screen.
According to The Korea Herald, Samsung’s vice president of display Kim Seong-Cheol announced during a speech earlier this week that the Galaxy Fold was now poised for commercial launch.
It was originally due for release on April 26, but after sending review models of its new folding phone to journalists a myriad of issues were exposed, including a defective hinge, screen distortion and flickering, and numerous users mistakenly removing part of the screen thinking it was a screen protector.
The South Korean tech giant has since delayed the release its release indefinitely while it worked to fix the issues, though some reports emerged it could be launched in July.
“Most of the display problems have been ironed out, and the Galaxy Fold is ready to hit the market,” Seong-Cheol stated.
