Samsung Galaxy Fold Release keeps getting delayed, as July also seems unlikely now



As if the original release of Samsung's highly anticipated first foldable smartphone was not messy enough, with review units catastrophically and unexpectedly damaged after just a few days of light usage, ultimately forcing an indefinite delay, said delay is not exactly

A thick cloud of confusion has been hovering over the Galaxy Fold ever since the groundbreaking device has literally begun breaking, as a new launch date was initially expected within a couple of weeks of Samsung's acknowledgment of "some issues." But just like in the classic Tom Hanks starrer "The Money Pit", the company's promise to clear everything up in "two weeks" kept repeating itself, drawing increasingly frustrated reactions from potential buyers and general foldable concept enthusiasts.
What's worse is that latest Korean media report scraps this bogus optimism altogether, crushing our hopes of getting an official update on a revised release schedule in the next two weeks …

Little to no progress since April

Remember more than a month ago when CEO Koh Dong-jin claimed Samsung's investigation of Galaxy Fold defects was pretty much completed and a "conclusion" on re-release was expected to be reached in a "couple of days"? That last part obviously did not happen, but according to an unnamed Samsung official quoted by The Korea Herald today, the part about the investigation and improvement process was almost over

, which sounds really bad. At the same time, the bleak statement comes into direct conflict with multiple reports, rumors, and announcements in recent weeks. While the firm timeline is probably not in place yet, describing the situation as completely stagnant since April seems like a gross misrepresentation of the facts

After all, Samsung knows exactly what was wrong with those feeble devices from a couple of months back . A simple teardown and examination of Galaxy Fold's structural durability was enough to reveal its key weaknesses. Of course, fixing said flaws is much more trickier than just noticing them, but Samsung has managed to strengthen the display and protective plastic layer applied on top of it, as well as minimize the gaps between the layer and the phone's bezels

Still, it's true that scheduling a press event by the end of this month to talk about re-release and improved foldable design is starting to look more and more unlikely.

The Galaxy Note 10 is drawing near

If Samsung does not pull off a July launch, which is what this new report is hinting at, the company may as well re-release the Galaxy Fold alongside the Galaxy Note 10 in August. More specifically, on or around August 10. We know, that seems incredibly far away, but why rush the product out if little progress has indeed been made on the front reinforcement

It's not like Huawei, Xiaomi, Motorola or anyone else is expected to actually ship a working foldable device to consumers anytime soon. Heck, Samsung could probably delay the Galaxy Fold until October or November, and it still would not do much damage to the company's pioneering status in this category predicted to revolutionize the mobile industry as a whole …
Besides, showcasing and tougher, the fully functional Galaxy Fold next to a Note 10 that's shaping up to be almost as eye-catching could take some pressure off a cutting-edge product that's quickly turning into a joke. Bottom line, the best thing Samsung could do right now is stopping conflicting information and unrealistic timelines. (19659018) window.fbAsyncInit = function () {) {
