Samsung delays the launch of its foldable smartphone until 2019, the UX is to blame
Attending at CES (Consumers Electronics Show) 2018 trade fair, Samsung's boss said that a foldable smartphone is now being scheduled for release sometime next year. Apparently, the main reason the company had to delay the product is the inability of its engineers to provide it with a UX (user experience) suitable for the end user.
However, DJ Koh said that his company is actively looking into ways to overcome this problem so that the foldable smartphone could be commercialized by the end of 2019.
Samsung filed for a lot of patents related to its rumored foldable smartphone last year, and, hardware-wise, it looks like the company is ready to build a device that could be mass-produced. Hopefully, Samsung will be able to overcome the UX obstacle preventing it from outing the world's first foldable smartphone sooner rather than later.
