Samsung Says It’s Fixed the Galaxy Fold, Plans September Launch
It’s baaaaack! Well, actually, it was never officially here. So, in reality, it’s finally heeeere!
In a relatively brief statement published to its newsroom on Wednesday evening, Samsung announced that it has corrected all of the known issues with the yet-to-be-launched Galaxy Fold device and will bring the device to select markets starting in September. Specific launch details will be shared closer to launch.
At its Unpacked event back in February, Samsung unveiled their first-ever foldable device with a great deal of fanfare, only to see the early review units fall flat on their fold. Though the company talked down how widespread the issues were, a number of media outlets reported having to get replacement review units for a number of reasons. Some of the known issues included malfunctioning screens, dust and dirt getting underneath the display, and unintentional destruction of the display by peeling off what appeared to be a screen protector.
