Samsung Galaxy Fold ‘ready’ for launch after screen fix

Samsung’s first foldable smartphone will go on sale in September after problems with the device delayed its initial release.

Samsung said it had made “improvements” to the nearly $2,000 device which would be sold in “select markets”.

“Samsung has taken the time to fully evaluate the product design, make necessary improvements and run rigorous tests to validate the changes we made,” Samsung said in a statement.

The company said the top protective layer of the Infinity Flex Display has been extended beyond the bezel, making it apparent that it is an integral part of the display structure and not meant to be removed.

Galaxy Fold now features additional reinforcements to better protect the device from external particles while maintaining its signature foldable experience.

The April launch of the Galaxy Fold was postponed after early reviewers reported broken screens.
