Reviewers Find Serious Problems with Samsung Galaxy Fold
Samsung had scheduled a Hong Kong media event for Tuesday and another in Shanghai on Wednesday. It planned to released the Galaxy Fold in the U.S. on Friday.
The delays came after reviewers reported the device bent, among other issues. Some reviewers ripped off part of the display by mistake. They thought it was a protective cover. Others found problems with a flickering screen or a hinge.

We are conducting a thorough inspection into the issues reported by some of the reviewers of early Galaxy Fold samples. We will share the findings as soon as we have them,
