Samsung has issued a statement regarding the display problems of the Galaxy Fold stating that it will "personally investigate the faulty units to determine the cause of the matter." And we suggested after the display problems surfaced. The company also declares to clarify the importance of pre-installed protective film to consumers. The launch on April 26 is not delayed, according to The Wall Street Journal .
Here is Samsung's full statement:
A problem that is currently limited to the US?
The strangest thing about the whole ordeal is how the display problem affects only units that are in the hands of US publications. However, in some important publications such as Engadget the Galaxy Fold is still running properly, and so is our unit (which arrived on our doorstep from London). And given Samsung's confidence in maintaining the Galaxy Fold version in late April, rather than delaying it, the topic may not be too prevalent. Of course, Samsung was also pretty confident in catching fire in the first few weeks after launching the Galaxy Note 7, so we just have to wait and see what happens with the Galaxy Fold.
To say it was an important tool for the Korean giant would be an understatement, and to ensure that nothing goes wrong after consumers have received their orders, in the best interests of Samsung.
