Once hailed as the next big thing in mobile technology, the foldable phone movement has suffered setbacks due to delays with Huawei’s Mate X and Samsung’s Galaxy Fold. While Huawei’s foldable is expected to launch in September, there’s no word on when the Galaxy Fold will launch.
Originally announced at an Unpacked event earlier this year alongside the S10 series, the Fold was scheduled to hit shelves in May, however, due to reported display issues, the company paused all launch plans.
While no official statement has been released by Samsung other than their April statement which promised to “announce the release date in the coming weeks”, it appears that we’ll be waiting a few more months for the beleaguered handset to finally reach stores. According to The Korea Herald, rumours of a July launch are false as “nothing has progressed since the April delay.”
This means that the earliest launch date for the Fold would be August which could see the device being unveiled (again) alongside the Note 10, provided that Samsung isn’t concerned about two large-screen handsets cannibalising each other’s sales.
