It has been two months since Samsung delayed Galaxy Fold launch and even now, we have no concrete information regarding the premium foldable smartphone's release. But Samsung has come forward to officially confirm that regardless of what happens with the Galaxy Fold, it will have no effect whatsoever on the Galaxy Note 10 announcement.
A new Korea Herald report mentions that Samsung has no intentions of making any changes to the Galaxy Note 10 launch because of what is happening with the Galaxy Fold. The team has a separate launch timeline for both the flagships with plans of sticking to them.
One of the Samsung officials said, “The Galaxy Note 10 will have its own timeline for its debut in August, regardless of the Galaxy Fold’s launch schedule. The company keeps the same stance about the Galaxy Fold’s schedule.”
Samsung is rumored to release the Galaxy Note 10 on August 7th which is just about a month away. As for the Galaxy Fold, it is reported to launch sometime next month which closer to the upcoming phablet's release date. This is the reason there were speculations that Samsung might decide to postpone the next-gen Galaxy Note launch in order to avoid the collision between the two premium devices.
The Galaxy Fold is said to be under various user trail runs "as they are reporting errors occurring in various settings". This does not seem to be a good sign for the foldable phone as it adds more questions than answers to its future. While we are still hoping to see the device come to the market even if it gets late, it would not be surprising if Samsung decides to kill the device altogether.
