Issues with the Galaxy Fold
In spite of the big news, Samsung’s last big release, the Galaxy Fold, had an unfortunate launch. Technical issues around the device prevented the phone from hitting stores on time. Samsung co-CEO DJ Koh says the Galaxy Fold moved towards the market “before it was ready,” leading to the many issues. Furthermore, this included a delay just before it was supposed to ship to customers. According to a statement made in The Independent, Koh said “It was embarrassing.” Since this incident, the phone has still yet to be released to the general public. Kang Yun-Je, head of Samsung Electronic’s design team said:
“Smartphone design has hit a limit, that’s why we designed a folding phone…” expanding further “But we’re also focusing on other devices that are beginning to make a wider impact on the market, like smart earphones and smart watches. In five years or so, people will not even realise they are wearing screens. It will be seamless.”
To sum up, big news is coming for Samsung. Tune in one August 7th to see what exciting news Samsung has to share.
