Samsung delaying launch of foldable smartphone- News – NHK WORLD – English

Officials at Samsung say they’re going to postpone the market launch of their foldable smartphone, following reports of broken and damaged screens.

It can be used as a conventional smartphone when folded like a book, and as a mini tablet when opened. But journalists reviewing the handset have reported problems with its display.

The company says delaying the market launch will give it time to fully evaluate feedback and run further tests.

Samsung says it plans to announce the new release date in the coming weeks.
