While Samsung has made it official late last night that the company has decided to delay the rollout of Galaxy Fold, the status of the phone’s launch event in Malaysia was still unknown until this afternoon. We have finally received the confirmation from Samsung Malaysia at around 2:09 PM that the event which was originally scheduled to take place on 3 May has now been postponed.
However, the new launch date for Malaysia is not yet known for the time being. The brief media note that we have received from Samsung Malaysia stated that the new launch date will be revealed in “coming weeks“.
Commenting on the issues that were present on early review units, the company’s initial investigation showed that the malfunctions could be related to the exposed areas within the Galaxy Fold’s hinge. Samsung also noticed that there are substances in the phone that have affected its display.
The company has also stated in its global announcement that the company will be working to improve the strength of Galaxy Fold’s display protection. We should be hearing more about Galaxy Fold once again in a few weeks’ time as the company will be revealing the new launch date for the foldable phone soon.
