Samsung Galaxy Fold is one of the hot topics in the tech industry because you know why. The first foldable device from Samsung caught more attention for its screen damaging issue than its approach to come as the first device of a completely new segment. Eventually, Samsung had to delay the launch and till date, we don’t have any information on its release. But time to time, Samsung releases statements or has an exec do an interview to reiterate the fact that the launch is still on. Just recently, the company’s CEO DJ Koh acknowledged that “it was embarrassing. I pushed it through before it was ready.” So, all these statements indeed make us believe in the existence of the Galaxy Fold. But they also make us eager to know more about it or how Samsung is handling it.
Now, a new report comes from Bloomberg that claims the redesigning of the Galaxy Fold is completed.
The world’s largest smartphone maker is now in the final stages of producing a commercial version but can’t yet pin down a date to begin sales, people familiar with the matter said.
This further alludes that the device might be ready to launch anytime soon. But again, the exact release date is unknown. Also, if the redesigning is done the device must need to undergo certain tests to prove its endurance, which in turn means, it will take some more to bake. However, Koh commented that more than 2,000 devices are being tested already.
According to the report, Samsung is on the cusp of being able to manufacturer market-ready Galaxy Fold phones.
Koh also admitted that while testing the Galaxy Fold, they found some issues that they didn’t even think about before. The feedbacks of reviewers have been really helpful in the process and currently, mass volume testing is ongoing.
We are unable to tell at which process stage the Galaxy Fold is currently on but it’s great to note the progress, at least, well, if the report is to be believed.
