If the South Korean manufacturer has just digested the serious battery problems of the Galaxy Note 7 in recent years, the errors made by the allegedly progressive Samsung Galaxy Fold now cause a new nightmare in public relations. The first smartphones with folding displays distributed to journalists and influencers showed flaws after a few days. Partially and completely faulty, damaged screens as well as peeled protective films and mechanical problems made the testers desperate, which went with appropriately negative public criticism.Are folding smartphones like the Galaxy Fold really ready for the mass market?While ordinary consumers have canceled the modern Euro 2000 smartphone in advance because of the high price, the "Foldgate" hashtag is already spreading within the technology bubble on Twitter and Co. After the first attempts to replace defective Galaxy Fold devices, Samsung has quickly recognized the far-reaching problem. Compared to the BBC, the Wall Street Journal and now in his blog post, the producer announced that the display problem needs to be reviewed more closely.
The new start date has not yet been set
Therefore, Samsung will not launch the Galaxy Fold as planned in late April or early May, but will postpone its launch on the international market for the moment. The South Koreans want to announce an exact date for the official departure signal next week. Over time, feedback from the first Fold users will be evaluated and various internal tests will be performed. The main objective is the hinged mechanism and the protection, as well as the reinforcement of the screen.
Thus, the technical figures of the Samsung Galaxy Fold once again for the test and for a new series, the maturity should spend some time.
