But, he was quick to say that "the Galaxy Fold, when released, will receive a lot of attention in the market".

Recent rumors had suggested Samsung would hold a media briefing later this month before releasing the Fold in July. No definite date was given as of today. Samsung Electronics placed the protective film under the bezel and it partially changed design of the hinge, where debris can accumulate easily, so that there will not be any gap when Galaxy Fold is being used. Expectations were skyrocketing, and the price of $2000 indicated that we are facing one of the most important smartphones of the company.

The Fold was initially scheduled to hit the shelves in April in the U.S. and in May in Korea, but the launch has been delayed after reviewers complained of flickering screens and creases in the middle of the screen made after repeated folds. The company Met X was first scheduled to be released in June, but now its launch date has been finalized in September. Earlier this week, AT & T sent cancellation announcements to those who had paid for the Galaxy Fold in pre-sale arguing Samsung's delay in launching the device.

Samsung Display is the subsidiary that provides displays for the Korean company. However, another Samsung official revealed later that nothing had been done to prepare for an event this month. This is because very few progress, to none, has been done to address the Samsung Galaxy Fold issues since April. We must wait to see if Samsung can execute this or not. Samsung CEO DJ Koh said back in May that the launch date would soon be announced.and we're still waiting.

Just yesterday, the Chinese Agency 3C certified Mate X. This means that Chinese users will be among the first to get access to the phone.

In a week from now, we will officially surpass a two months passage from the date when Samsung quoted the pre-order release date for Samsung Galaxy Fold, however, it was only after several reviewers reviewed units with flaws that Samsung made a decision to keep the release date on a back burner while fixing the issue first.
