Samsung’s first foldable smartphone has had a fair share of controversies even before it has gone on its first sale. Prior to making the device available to the public, Samsung Galaxy Fold was sent to some reviewers and YouTubers in the US who found some issues with the screen of the device. Now, a report has surfaced online that suggests that Samsung’s first foldable smartphone has finally passed all the tests and is set to be relaunched for the public soon.
We should mention that Samsung Galaxy Fold was supposed to be launched in April this year. However, after the issues were reported by reviewers and YouTubers, the company postponed the launch of its smartphone and since then, it is working to fix the issues in the Galaxy Fold handset. According to some reports, even a film on the display that was not supposed to be removed could easily be peeled off by using hands.
Until now, the company has not revealed when it will launch the smartphone but it is also expected that the company might unveil the Galaxy Fold for the masses during its Galaxy Unpacked event that will be held in New York on August 7.
According to a report by Android Community, the Samsung Galaxy Fold has passed all the tests and is ready to be shipped to the public. The report says that the Samsung Display executive has revealed that the Galaxy Fold is ready. Speaking to the website, Kim Seong-Cheol, Vice President of Samsung Display said, “Most of the display problems have been ironed out, and the Galaxy Fold is ready to hit the market.”
The report also adds that Samsung has almost finished the redesign of Galaxy Fold and it has indicated that the smartphone has cleared all the various tests with “flying colours” before its relaunch. A few changes have reportedly been made in the Samsung Galaxy Fold while it was re-engineered.
Earlier this month, Samsung’s co-CEO DJ Koh also admitted that the South Korean technology giant made a mistake by unveiling the Galaxy Fold “before it was ready”. He also stated that he was the person who was responsible to push the Samsung Galaxy Fold to the market so early. He also said that the device was not ready till now, the company has delayed the shipment of the device to the masses. Koh also admitted that the entire episode “was embarrassing” for the company.
