Samsung is ready with the Corrections on the Galaxy Fold; Release Date not Certain

With the date for the next Galaxy Unpacked slated for August 7, questions were already being asked on what happened to the Samsung Galaxy Fold? Well, it appears the South Korean technology giant has managed to address the issues that plagued the model. The phone may be put out in the market sooner than later, though no dates have been disclosed yet.

Two Major Issues Reported

If you recall, Samsung had unveiled the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the phone was properly introduced and demonstrated. However, within just a couple of days, the company was confronted with reports of the top cover or protective screen on the display peeling off. More importantly, some anomalies showed up in the display and the fold was probably the issue.

Both Issues Resolved

According to a report by Bloomberg, Samsung has since reworked on the hinge on the fold and the device should have no display issues when folded or fully unfolded. To be fair, the phone had no issues with the smaller display when folded. It was only the 7.3-inch screen that had issues when fully unfolded. Even those were not really serious, but Samsung didn’t want to take any chances.

As far as the protective layer is concerned, the company found an easier way. The cover has now been stretched beyond the full display size and folded over so that there is no way it can peel off.

Production of Samsung Galaxy Fold in Vietnam

This report says Samsung is now in the process of shipping the components to the assembly plant in Vietnam. This may still be work in process and it may take more time for the production to be completed, more tests done and push the devices in the market. There is absolutely no way the Samsung Galaxy Fold will be part of the Unpacked event on August 7.

The next important factor that Samsung would be concerned about in the market place is whether Huawei can beat it to the market with its Huawei’s Mate X foldable phone. As per the current indications, the Chinese major is likely to come out with its foldable phone by September. Huawei too had its own set of issues with the phone. Both companies will be looking over each other’s shoulder.
