Samsung put all sorts of delays on its foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, after it was experiencing issues during a round sent out to reviewers. Now, Samsung is saying that it’s finally ready for launch, but it’ll still be a couple months.
A report from The Investor, spotted by our friends at SamMobile, says that Samsung confirmed to the publication that the phone would once again be ready to launch in September.
This confirmation comes from Samsung Display Vice President Kim Seong-cheol:
“Most of the display problems have been ironed out, and the Galaxy Fold is ready to hit the market.”
It has been quite a delay, when you consider that the Galaxy Fold was supposed to hit store shelves in April. However, we’ve made progress, since only the other day, The Korea Herald was reporting that Samsung had made no progress on a release date.
Of course, Samsung is going to have some stiff competition to deal with. Since they weren’t able to achieve that April release window, Samsung will be competing with Huawei’s own foldable phone, the Mate X, which also launches in September.
