Samsung Galaxy Fold might not launch next month

Samsung Galaxy Fold might not launch next month

It has been more than a month since Samsung delayed the launch of the Galaxy Fold and we have heard nothing about it since. Korean media outlets are claiming that the wait could be longer as the Galaxy Fold is not expected to be launched in June. 

Yonhap News Agency has heard that it is taking longer than expected for Samsung to improve the hardware quality of the device and have it re-certified for use with mobile networks. Another source shared that Huawei’s struggles with the U.S export ban gave Samsung more time to iron out any issues. 

Samsung has already informed customers in the U.S that their pre-orders would be canceled automatically if the device is unable to be shipped by 31 May. The Korean company has also reportedly made two improvements to the Galaxy Fold in the past few weeks.
