All of the news on Samsung's foldable phone
The Samsung Galaxy Fold originally set to launch on April 26th, 2019, and became the first phone with a foldable OLED display. After years of rumors and a bunch of hype from Samsung during the announcement of the Galaxy S10, it seemed like the foldable future was about to arrive. Then, The Verge's Dieter Bohn's review of the phone, and other publications, our review is a mysterious, abrupt failure just days after taking it out of the box.
There are at least two issues at play: the foldable display is covered with a protective layer, which is identical to a cheap screen protector. Several review units failed after it was removed. However, some displays have failed to do so.
Samsung has acknowledged both possible issues and indefinitely. It stated that it will "take measures to strengthen the display". According to messages AT & T customers who pre-ordered the Galaxy Fold, that release date may be June 13th (though we believe it could be a placeholder date).
