Samsung is delaying the release of the $1,980 Galaxy Fold indefinitely.
The foldable hybrid smartphone/tablet had been scheduled to go on sale in the U.S. on Friday. Now Samsung is saying it will reveal a new release date “in a few weeks.”
At issue, of course, is the screen breakage reported by a few of the early reviewers who were given devices a week ago.
The design of the Fold appeared initially to be quite a technological achievement: It allows you to transform the device from a chunky 4.6-inch candy bar smartphone into a 7.3-inch tablet, just by unfolding it like an old flip phone.
