Samsung had to cancel the launch of the Galaxy Fold scheduled for April 26 due to some obvious problems with the display of the device that needed to be repaired.
Samsung has worked to resolve the problems that have occurred and reports suggest that the manufacturer has managed to make the required changes, however the company has yet to confirm when it will release the first foldable smartphone in the world.
A recent report confirmed that the device will not be released in June, forcing Samsung and Best Buy to cancel all pre-orders, but a new report from South Korea commented by DJ Koh, CEO of Samsung mobile, suggests that the company will finally release the Galaxy Fold in July.

Samsung should also hold a press event later this month to describes in detail the changes made to the Galaxy Fold before distributing the device.
Samsung may have been in too much of a hurry to beat Huawei, introducing a foldable smartphone with no problems, but with Huawei involved in a trade war between the United States and China, Samsung may take extra time to perfect the software and be absolutely certain that the Galaxy Fold will no longer run into problems once it reaches the market.
It is worth to mention that despite the fact that Samsung is yet to release the Galaxy Fold after a problematic first attempt, the Russian company Caviar has already made a custom variant of the foldable smartphone. While the Samsung Galaxy Fold is an exotic device by nature, Caviar decided to go even further with a new modded version of the handset inspired by the popular TV series Game of Thrones.
