Earlier today, Samsung officially announced the Galaxy Fold after spending months correcting problems that the original batch of reviews revealed.
Also today, Samsung has decided to cancel all Galaxy Fold pre-orders in the US. Do not read this incorrectly, the company did not start pre-orders, but canceled them. We are talking about pre-orders, which were available earlier this year, after Fold's initial announcement before any problems appeared.

So Samsung canceled my pre-order for the Samsung Galaxy Fold … at least it gave me a $ 250 credit for everything in their store.This is really generous. .com / Nv7OAIMxnN

You can see the email in the tweet, embedded above, that comes from YouTuber M. Brandon Lee, who made it public for the first time. Fortunately for people in this situation, Samsung is giving away a $ 250 credit for being purchased for any product sold directly through its online store. This includes the Galaxy Fold, so in the end, if you decide to re-order it, you'll get a nice discount on what is definitely one of the most expensive smartphones ever.
Galaxy Fold hits Korea first on September 6, and then lands in France, Germany, Singapore and the United Kingdom on September 18. It is officially heading to the US "in the coming weeks", with an audible release date of September 27th.
