Samsung CEO says fixed Galaxy Fold will launch soon

Of Course Google Is Developing A Foldable

Samsung CEO DJ Koh told the outlet on Thursday that the company has "reviewed the defect caused from substances (that entered the device)". Rather than face a horde of consumers who were upset to discover the same thing, Samsung chose to delay the launch of the Galaxy Fold to improve some aspects of its design.

Samsung's new Galaxy Fold smart phone which features the world's first 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display that works with the next-generation 5G networks is seen in this image released in San Francisco February 20, 2019.

Samsung recently suspended all orders of its Galaxy Fold indefinitely. The other and arguably more serious flaw involved top and bottom gaps between this protective layer and screen bezels where the device was supposed to fold, easily attracting debris that could impact the functionality of the main display. On the subject of whether or not the Fold would make a comeback this month, Koh said, "we will not be too late".

Samsung said on Tuesday it can not confirm the shipping date for its foldable device Galaxy Fold yet and apologized to its pre-order customers in the United States for the delay.

Oil prices rise on hopes for U.S.-China trade deal
Sinopec agreed in 2012 to lift an average of about 265,000 bpd oil from Iran in a long-term deal that expires end of 2019. The National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) did not immediately respond to an email from Reuters seeking comment.

To date, Samsung hasn't announced when the Galaxy Fold will land in Australia. Sources familiar with the situation have said that Samsung is going to retrieve all units that it sent out to reviewers in order to take a thorough look at them. To be fair, Samsung failed to place a clear warning that the topmost layer isn't meant to be removed.

Based on Koh's words, it seems that Samsung is closer than ever to a final decision regarding the foldable device. We'll see how this situation unfolds (pun intended) as it might be one of the most hard things Samsung has had to deal with since the Note 7 fiasco.

However, the manufacturer elected to postpone the device's release mere days before it was due to ship to customers after testers reported experiencing issues with the handheld's delicate plastic display.
