Samsung delays Galaxy Fold launch in the US by at least one month
After postponing some of the Galaxy Fold launch events in Asia, Samsung has just confirmed that the foldable smartphone won't make its debut in the United States on April 26, as previously announced.

Despite the fact that the South Korean company initially denied any plans to postpone the US launch of the Galaxy Fold due to the issues reported by some reviewers, The Wall Street Journal reports Samsung will announce a new release date “in the coming weeks.”

If you're one of the 2,000 customers who've already pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy Fold in the United States, you won't be getting your phone any time soon. The smartphone makers has already sent emails to those who pre-ordered the foldable device informing them about the delay.

Samsung also mentions the while the pre-orders guarantees customers' places in the queue, they will not be charged until their orders ship. The South Korean company promises a new update with more specific shipping info will be available in about two weeks from now. Obviously, you can cancel your pre-order at any time before your Galaxy Fold smartphone ships.
