Samsung Electronics says no anticipated shipping date yet for Galaxy Fold

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 might debut with faster than 25W charging

Samsung said on Tuesday that it still does not have a confirmed ship date for its new $2,000 Galaxy Fold phone after being delayed for breaking during review tests.

The email then goes on to say: "As a reminder, your pre-order guarantees your place in the queue for this innovative technology". The email was necessary under United States regulations that require customers be contacted if their pre-order is in any doubt. More foldable devices are in the works but we'll have to see how the Galaxy Fold will survive. It asks its pre-order customers to either cancel their order or retain it.

More interesting than that bit of non-news sent out by Samsung is that the company is allowing people to cancel their pre-orders.

Samsung also reported that an unspecified "substance" was found within one of the demonstration models that was believed to be impacting its display. They thought that Samsung simply installed a screen protector on top of the display, but that was not the case.

Google Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL officially announced
Serial leakster Roland Quandt has shared several pictures of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL in " Just Black " and " Clearly White ". This will be good news to the ears of smart watch enthusiasts since Google skipped the Pixel watch on lasts years I/O event.

The negative reviews have now forced Samsung to hold back the release of the device indefinitely - with no shipping date presently set.

Samsung has said it plans to make at least 1 million Fold handsets in the first year, versus the total 300 million phones it produces annually on average. After review handsets were found to have serious problems with the folding screen, Samsung made a decision to postpone the release for an unspecified length of time.

While, in some cases, this borkage has been blamed on the removal of a screen protector that isn't created to be whipped off, some reviewers claimed the issues arose with the plastic film intact.

A warning on the Galaxy Fold packaging instructs users not to remove the protective layer, according to a photo posted by T-Mobile Senior Product Manager Desmond Smith. The release was canceled a few days before over issues that early reviewers were having with the devices.
