Samsung Galaxy Fold fix nearly done, may be launched again soon

Samsung CEO DJ Koh has now revealed that the Galaxy Fold launch date will be revealed soon, the company plans to make an announcement this month and the handset could launch before the end of May. Until now we have seen only Samsung introduce its Galaxy Fold but that was also delayed given some issues with the screen.

It appears that the Galaxy Fold may come sooner than anyone expected.

That means that the company will work on strengthening the exposed hinge areas and minimize the gap between the bezel and the protective layer so as to avoid any substances from penetrating the device.

Interestingly, Koh was asked about a possible launch within this month, He simply replied, "We will not be too late".

"We are making progress in enhancing the Galaxy Fold to make sure it measures up to the high standards we know you expect from us", Samsung said in an e-mail to its USA pre-order customers on Monday. It had to delay the initial launch scheduled for April 26 in the United States due to some issues with review units. For now, foldable devices are only suited for users looking for bigger screens without a significant increase in the size of the smartphone but that may not add sufficient momentum for the company to start producing smartphones in this form factor.
