Samsung reportedly rushed the $2,000 Galaxy Fold foldable smartphone to market after being accused of copying Apple, and it may have contributed to the fiasco that led to its delay

  • A new report suggests that Samsung rushed to release the Galaxy Fold in an attempt to change its image from “fast adopter” to “true innovator.”
  • Samsung’s April 26 release date for the Galaxy Fold would have ensured that the company would become the first to release a consumer foldable smartphone, which would have been a significant accomplishment.
  • The Chinese phone maker Huawei announced its Mate Xfoldable smartphone with a “middle of 2019” release window.
  • On Monday, Samsung announced that it’s delaying the release of the Galaxy Fold with no new release date set.

Samsung announced on Monday that it’s delaying the release of its foldable Galaxy Fold smartphone — which was set to be released on April 26 — as a result of reports from reviewers that their Galaxy Fold review units were breaking after just a couple days.
