Shortly after announcing that the launch of the Galaxy Fold is postponed, Samsung is reportedly retrieving all review units. 

According to Reuters, a source with direct knowledge of the matter claims that Samsung will be collecting back the units that it distributed to reviewers and influencers. Another source added that hinge maker KH Vatec Co conducted an internal review of the hinges used in the Galaxy Fold and found no defects. 

Samsung plans to sell 1 million units of the Galaxy Fold this year. However, reports of display issues raised concerns on the durability of the device and it could damage Samsung’s image as an innovative first mover.
