Samsung exec claims ‘most’ Galaxy Fold issues ‘ironed out,’ finally ‘ready to hit the market’

Kim Young-won for The Korea Herald:

Samsung Electronics’ first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, will launch soon, as “most” issues linked to the screen have been solved, a Samsung Display executive has revealed.

MacDailyNews Take: Comforting. (Bwahahahahaha!)

“Most of the display problems have been ironed out, and the Galaxy Fold is ready to hit the market,” said Samsung Display Vice President Kim Seong-cheol in his speech at a conference held by industry organization The Korean Information Display Society on June 18 in Seoul.

MacDailyNews Take: The only thing not “ironed out?” That nasty crease:

The Fold was initially scheduled to hit the shelves in April in the US 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.

It is rumored that the launch will take place in July…

MacDailyNews Take: Tech masochists the world over will soon get all bent out of shape.

    1. Well it is Samsungs fault 3d tvs never went anywhere. So makes sense this fails on them too. Other 3d tvs with passive 3d were great, samsung wanted to sell glasses more than sell tvs, so it died.

  1. ‘“Most of the display problems have been ironed out, and the Galaxy Fold is ready to hit the market,” said Samsung Display Vice President Kim Seong-cheol”

    “Most” not ‘all’ … but yet its ready to hit the market??.. … 🤣🤣🤣
    Keep it up Sammy…..

  2. I’m going to guess at the very least, minor fold issue concerning time the ‘bend’ in the display flattens out after unfolding remain but display will not ‘cut out’ anymore. Anything less is too risky for another go after the first impressions via test devices sent to reviewers.
