After months of postponements, Samsung is reportedly ready to relaunch its Galaxy Fold foldable smartphone. The Korean brand says that it has addressed “most” issues linked to the foldable phone’s display, and is thus ready to hit the market.
The insight and status of the Galaxy Fold was revealed by Kim Seong-cheol, vice president at Samsung Display, during his speech at the The Korean Information Display Society, which took place in Seoul a few days ago.
Samsung’s Galaxy Fold smartphone was announced earlier this year, it’s not an exaggeration to say that the tastebuds and fancy of many were tickled. Then came the myriad of issues that stemmed from its construction and ultimately forced the brand to postpone its launch globally.
It also didn’t help the brand and confidence of consumers when iFixit, the US-based mobile repair company, posted its teardown of the Galaxy Fold, revealing all of the problems, as well as the crease that was visible in the middle of the display. Brought about by the massive gap that is also the spine of the phone.
Samsung has yet to set a date for the grand relaunch of its foldable device, but rumours are suggesting that the brand is planning to host and event for it sometime in July this year. Unsurprisingly, Samsung denies any knowledge of that proposed date, and we can kind of see why; The month of August and September is usually when the brand holds its annual Unpacked event. The brand is expected to launch its next flagship, the Galaxy Note 10, during then.
