Netease Technologies News June 14, the U.S. wireless operator AT&T announced on Thursday that it had cancelled Samsungs $2,000 booking for the foldable Galaxy Fold cell phone and returned a $100 deposit to relevant customers.
Samsung Galaxy Fold, one of the first foldable smartphones to be launched on April 26, was delayed indefinitely due to frequent failures in testing. The evaluation shows that the screen starts to flicker before it stops working completely. Samsung said it was making further improvements to help protect the screen from damage.
Samsung automatically cancelled early orders posted through its website after confirming that shipments could not be made before May 31. Best Buy also cancelled its order.
Samsung said in May: Although we continue to make progress in enhancing Galaxy Fold, the new release date has not yet been set. Thats why we recently contacted our subscribers to provide them with more options.
Yonhap reported in May that Samsungs goal was to launch the phone in June. Samsung also said at the time that it would announce a new launch date in the coming weeks.
Samsung has not commented on AT&Ts cancellations, nor can reporters confirm Galaxy Folds new launch date. (Small)
