Samsung Galaxy Fold US launch may have been postponed until June

Apparently, AT&T has already started to notify customers who pre-ordered the Galaxy Fold to let them know their devices will be shipped on June 13. Several Reddit users also report the carrier advises them to accept the new shipping date or the order will be canceled.
The problem is Samsung hasn't announced anything yet, so this might be just a placeholder and a way to verify how many customers still want the phone, so take it with a grain of salt until Samsung makes it official.
Although Samsung initially said the Galaxy Fold's US launch will be postponed by at least one month, it's hard to believe the company has already managed to asses and solve the issues with the phone's display in such a short time. That being said, we won't be surprised if Samsung brings the Galaxy Fold to the US later than the date announced by AT&T this week.

Their won’t be a ton of sales even with a delayed launch. They should scrap it and look forward to next year. No company will make a dent in the foldable market. Consumer demand isn’t there.

Didn't Sammy sellout the Fold after a couple days? I think enough demand is there to make their current foldable viable, even with the present issues regarding the screen. At the very least, tech enthusiasts seem willing to foot the bill for progress.

take it slow and make it right since its new tech. its good to see these problems early and adjust the tech as more people see flaws in the product. i will probably wait 2 more years until its perfected.

I can't see how they can fix it, they would have to test it a lot before trying to relaunch. And they have to be 100% sure that there won't be Any news about fold breaking in people's hands because after what already happened that would be end of the product, if it wasn't already? And because of that the pressure for relaunch will be too big and they eventually cancel the device. Just like what happened with Note 7

Honestly, anybody who jumps on the bandwagon of a brand new technology and doesn't expect there to be issues is either naive or stupid. I saw this coming a mile away, hence why I went with the s10+ instead of waiting on the Fold.
