Samsung’s Galaxy Fold faces delay in China launch

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold smartphone is the first of its kind. Unfortunately, the company has reportedly postponed the Chinese launch of its forthcoming Galaxy Fold smartphone. The people familiar with the situation reveal that the official reason for the delay is due to an issue with the venue, but other activities related to the launch have also been delayed or canceled.

Events Postponed

According to Chief Richard Lai, Engadget Chinese Editor-in-Chief reported on Twitter that the events planned out in Hong Kong and Shanghai have been postponed. The events were to take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.

Review Devices broke a little too soon

Word comes not long after a string of reports from tech journalists who found their review devices broken after just a couple of days of use, ranging from issues with the hinge to broken screens, and protective coverings being accidentally removed from the screen.


Samsung issued a statement, saying that it “will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter.” However, it has indicated that it’s planning on moving forward with its US launch on April 26th.
