Samsung has actually been naturally quiet about the Galaxy Fold for the last number of weeks. The company’s been reassessing issues with the collapsible’s display screen after initially chalking up problems with evaluation systems to small sample sizes and user error. It’s hard to state how challenging and pricey a fix will be, however this certainly isn’t the sort of press it was wishing for with its first-to-market gadget.
CEO DJ Koh is finally ready to talk about the Fold– or at least deal news that there will soon be news. The exec told The Korea Herald that Samsung, “has examined the defect caused from compounds (that got in the gadget), and we will reach a conclusion in a number of days (on the launch).”
What Koh appears to be describing particularly are the gaps in the fold mechanism that permitted product to support the display, damaging it when pressure was applied to the touchscreen.
From the noise of things, Samsung is wanting to have an upgrade on timing at some time today or early next, at the current. Koh included, “We will not be too late,” which the paper took to be an idea that the Fold will begin delivering earlier than anticipated.
Samsung no doubt is wishing to have it out quicker than later, but the Note fiasco’s 2 recalls ought to serve as a tip that these things ought not be hurried.
