Samsung postpones Galaxy Fold launch event in China

Samsung Galaxy Fold Display Issues Due to OLED Vulnerabilities Faulty Design Wrong Testing Process iFixit

The fragile nature of OLED panels is a major reason behind the Galaxy Fold display fiasco

The screen on Samsung's device can fold in half and open up again to give users a large display.

Samsung previously announced in February that the Galaxy Fold would launch in Singapore in the second quarter of the year. The tech giant has made a decision to implement the change when foldable smartphones like Samsung Galaxy Fold and Huawei Mate X are going to release soon with more foldable devices to follow in 2019. The firm last week faced a lot of heat as some units that were with some reviewers stopped working due to faulty screens and no clear instructions on the retail box. Some reviewers removed this front protective layer before their screens died. It's NOT a screen protector.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold will be launching in Malaysia on 3rd May 2019.

Samsung will delay the release of the Galaxy Fold, it's reported, with this week's expected debut of the innovative folding smartphone pushed back after a rocky start to the review process.

Samsung's hinge for the Galaxy Fold couldn't be as straightforward as flip-phones of old.

The announcement comes days after some reviewers of the splashy $1,980 foldable handset reported problems with their test units after just a day or two of use. And if there is a more significant problem with the Galaxy Fold display, it would take longer than a few weeks to sort out.

Not long after the swirling rumors of an imminent delay, Samsung issues an official statement about the Galaxy Folds indefinite delays. "Additionally we've introduced several improvements to make Google Photos compatible with foldable devices", writes Google under the "what's new" section in the Play Store. But it hasn't confirmed when a redesigned Galaxy Fold will arrive. "We have received a few reports regarding the main display on the samples provided", wrote a Samsung spokesperson in response to the initial claims. "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".
