The Samsung Galaxy Fold delay of the launch in Shanghai and Hong Kong seems to be happening. However, why is that? While the company is claiming that there is a problem with the venue; could it be that it is because of the issues with the phone? We'll try to get to the bottom of it in this article, so let's jump right in!

    What does the Samsung Galaxy Fold have?

    Before we get into the ‘’Samsung Galaxy Fold delay’’ part, you should get familiar with the phone first so that you know what the phone has to offer to consumers.

    The Samsung Galaxy Fold has two displays

    What got the attention of the people is undoubtedly apparent; it has TWO screens! One of the screens is on the outside, and the other is revealed when you open up the phone. The display on the outside has a 4.6-inch HD+ Super AMOLED panel with a 21:9 aspect ratio. The main display has a large 7.3-inch QXGA+ Dynamic AMOLED canvas with a form factor of 4.2:3. The external display can be used for anything that you would typically use your phone for like texting, calling, Instagram, Twitter, etc. However, the most attractive part about the Samsung Galaxy Fold is that it is basically a tablet that you can fit in your pocket. On the Samsung Galaxy Fold, you can use up to three apps at the same time. Also, with the Samsung Galaxy Fold, they will introduce a new feature called ‘’App Continuity’’. samsung galaxy fold delay

    A hinge mechanism keeping it together

    For the Samsung Galaxy Fold to open and close smoothly, it uses a powerful hinge mechanism. It supposedly opens smoothly and naturally as a book. Also, it closes flat and compact with a click. For everything to go smoothly; Samsung engineered a powerful hinge with multiple interlocking gears. To make sure everything will work fine when the phone comes out; Samsung put the hinge to the test. They opened and closed 200 thousand times. What does it mean for you? Well, it means you can use it in a span of five years if you open and close it 100 times in a single day.

    Samsung Galaxy Fold will have six cameras!

    It seems that Samsung is not going to cut back on cameras for the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The phone will have a total of 6 cameras. And let me tell you something, your pictures will be fantastic looking at the specs of the cameras.

    Price of the Samsung Galaxy Fold

    Let’s just say that the Samsung Galaxy Fold is not going to be cheap. It is expected to cost $1,980, and yes my heart stopped when I heard the price too. While the price is, how can I say this, pretty significant, the Samsung Galaxy Fold is the first smartphone like that to be on the market. Also, considering the technology it is using and the price of the Galaxy S10+ starting at $1000, let me tell you, it could be worse. Also, to make the price easier to digest Samsung is including premium packing for the Samsung Galaxy Fold and is also giving away a pair of Galaxy Buds for free with the phone. samsung galaxy fold delay

    Samsung Galaxy Fold delay

    Why is the Samsung Galaxy Fold delay of the launch in Hong Kong and Shanghai happening? It could be because of the three problems that are happening with Samsung Galaxy Fold screen. The Samsung Galaxy Fold delay was reported in a tweet by Richard Lai, with the original launch date being the 23rd and 24th of April. With the Samsung Galaxy Fold delay happening and the troubles with the screen; there are doubts on the internet about the durability of Samsung’s phone and the bendable phones in general. While for some of the reviewers the phone didn’t have the problems and for some they were having issues with the phone's screen. The Samsung Galaxy Fold delay of the launch that was supposed to happen this Tuesday and Wednesday; Samsung said that the Samsung Galaxy Fold delay is happening because of the problems with the venue. Also, there are some suggestions about the possibility of pushing back the shipments of the phones as well. For now, there are no signs of pointing that there will be a Samsung Galaxy Fold delay of the phone being sold in the U.S. Their spokesperson said that the launch date for the U.S. is still on track. However, that was told last week, and after the Samsung Galaxy Fold delay in Shanghai and Hong Kong, they might change that statement; so that they can address the problems with the screen and also, inform the phone owners not to remove the plastic that is protecting the screen.

    The problems with the Samsung Galaxy Fold

    What are the problems that caused the Samsung Galaxy Fold delay? Well, the problems with the phone started when few reviewers peeled the plastic that was covering the Samsung Galaxy Fold. Peeling the plastic that was on the phones interior screen, made the phone unusable. The problems didn’t stop there. A reviewer discovered that the left half of the phone that he got flickered, while another reviewer saw a bulge under his screen. The bulge that he saw caused distortion in the screen’s image. Samsung stated that they are investigating the devices that were reviewed so that they can determine the cause of the problem with the screen. Also, the company is making sure that all the necessary measures are in place, to ensure that information about the plastic that covers the phone is not to be taken off the phone.

     A flashback to the issue with the Samsung Galaxy Note 7

    While Foldable phones are a new concept in the mobile phone world. It is designed to give people more space to use while being small enough to carry around. Unlike, the large devices that can barely fit or can’t even fit in your pocket. But, with price starting at $1,980 and the problems that the Samsung Galaxy Fold has; could cause concern for other foldable phones that are expected to hit the market. However, if the main competitors that are making foldable phones, like Huawei with their Mate x, manage to avoid the issues that Samsung had, could lead the foldable phone market. Also, the problems with the Samsung Galaxy Fold are reminding people about the incident that the company had with the Galaxy Note 7. After, people were calling the Galaxy Note 7 a bomb because of its problems with the battery overheating and basically blowing up; the screen problems of the Samsung Galaxy Fold are causing concerns about the company’s ability to make a phone with no issues. samsung galaxy fold delay


    Being the pioneer in something could come with some consequences. For Samsung, the Samsung Galaxy Fold delay could cause problems for them in the future. However, for now, it could be a hit or miss project for them. If it is a hit the company will probably hit new heights; on the other hand, if it’s a miss, then the competitors will have a chance to overthrow them. It all depends on if they manage to solve the issues with the screen. Imagine being the first to bring something new to the market; it could help Samsung to cement its place as the top dog in the phone world.
