Samsung CEO says Galaxy Fold release “will not be too late”

Samsung plans to release their stricken Galaxy Fold smartphone soon, according to The Korea Herald. Co-CEO DJ Koh, told the newspaper that the company “has reviewed the defect caused from substances {that entered the device}, and we will reach a conclusion today or tomorrow {on the launch}.”


With this report, we think that the company has finally found the problem causing many devices to develop a bump under the screen after just a day of use. Samsung plans to improve the durability of the hinge’s exposed areas, according to the Herald, and will also reduce the gap between the screen’s bezels and its protective layer. Some users tried to remove that layer, without knowing , and caused screen malfunctions on the layer, which shipped looking like a regular screen protector.

Koh also said “We will not be too late” when questioned about whether the Galaxy Fold might ship in the US within this month. Yesterday, it has been reported that Samsung would cancel any pre-orders if the device wouldn’t ship until May 31st unless customers notify the company otherwise, but it doesn’t seem that the company would be willing to release the device sooner than expected.

At the very least, Koh’s comments confirm that the Galaxy Fold hasn’t been cancelled altogether. But it goes without saying, of course, that anyone still seriously considering buying this phone should watch what happens with the greatest of skepticism.
