Samsung Galaxy Fold aims for September launch after screen problems

Share

The company also pushed back the release of its foldable phone, saying it wanted to conduct extra tests following the screen problems with Samsung's Galaxy Fold.

T-Mobile was one of just two carriers that were going to sell the Galaxy Fold in the U.S.

Chinese rival Huawei Technologies Co Ltd has also announced a folding handset, the Mate X, which is also expected to go on sale in September.

Samsung Galaxy A10s will be the next entry-level smartphone from the South Korean smartphone giant in India, according to various leaks on the web. The failures prompted Samsung to postpone the launch of the device and several retailers to cancel preorders.

Update July 25 3:47 pm ET: AT&T said it had no information to share about its plans.

The hinge area has been strengthened with added protection caps. It has also added metal reinforcements under the Infinity Flex display to make the plastic screen sturdier.

Reducing the space between the hinge and body of the phone.

Between July and October this year, the statement said, the smartphone campaign would enable customers to purchase "Samsung Galaxy A" series smartphones - Galaxy A2 Core; Galaxy A10; and Galaxy A20 - at attractive prices. Nevertheless, it has said that it's still working with Samsung which would suggest the carrier could be in the process of testing the device vigorously before making a decision about its release. And it's coming in September.

At the same time, Samsung took the opportunity to improve the user interface and overall software experience for the Galaxy Fold. The Galaxy Fold's delay means it will launch around the same time Apple Inc. typically unveils its latest iPhones.

Although Samsung is promising reliability from the reworked Galaxy Fold, the actual specs and concept remain unchanged.

The 4.6 inch-smartphone's key selling point is that it opens up into a 7.3-inch tablet. Samsung left tech geeks in awe of the new gadgets launched.

And it appears that Samsung believes it has done so.

The question is, even if the Galaxy Fold has indeed been fixed, can Samsung's reputation be repaired so easily?

"Galaxy Fold completely reimagines the smartphone, changing the way you interact, communicate and experience everyday life". But there's so much more we're struggling to understand about this foldable phone.
