Samsung made headlines earlier this year with the launch of Galaxy Fold, the world’s first foldable smartphone. Just a few months later, the happy event turned into a big nightmare for the company when smartphone’s screens started facing issues.
The South Korean giant has remained silent for the last couple of weeks and while it initially tried to chalk up the problem to lack of user warnings to errors in the small sample, it ended up recalling all the Galaxy Fold devices sent to reviewers to assess the real problems.
Now finally Samsung has broken its silence and CEO DJ Koh while talking to The Korea Herald said, “(The company) has reviewed the defect caused from substances (that entered the device), and we will reach a conclusion in a couple of days (on the launch).”
Based on Samsung’s CEO comments, the company is coming close to the final decision about the relaunch of the smartphone. Galaxy Fold as initially slated for April 26th launch which was postponed after the alleged display defects were reported by tech reviewers and journalists around the world.
Reportedly, the company has completed its investigation and is taking further steps to prevent the same issues from rising again. It has also taken measures to strengthen the durability of the exposed area on the hinge and is working to minimize the gap between the protective layer and the bezels around the display, to keep the debris from getting under the top layer of the device’s screen.
