Samsung has left in the air the launch of the Galaxy Fold, the first foldable mobile, until the inspection, that has begun to determine the cause of the failures detected in the main screen of the units that were provided of test to several journalists.
The activity related to this device, which was expected to be launched on Friday April 26 in the U.S. and on May 3 in several European countries, has been “paralyzed” by now, the company said on Monday. The company had called to present the device to media in many countries on Wednesday 24 but these events have also been “postponed”.
The problem was detected after the company provided several bloggers and media with a limited number of Galaxy Fold samples for testing. There were two different cases, one that journalists “removed the protective film from the screen,” something they “shouldn’t have done,” and so there was damage to the screen, according to sources. The mobile has a protective layer that is part of the structure of the screen designed to protect it from scratches and, apparently, should not have been removed. In the second case, problems have been detected on the screen, the sources have acknowledged, explaining that the technicians are analyzing them.
