South Korean tech giant Samsung is planning the Galaxy Fold launch in China soon. Pre-registrations for the much-awaited foldable smartphone have kicked off in the country. The smartphone was originally set to release on April 26. But the manufacturer indefinitely delayed it after multiple review units experienced display issues.
Samsung Display Vice President Kim Seong-Cheol recently confirmed that the Galaxy Fold’s problems have been fixed, and it is ready to launch soon. The foldable smartphone reportedly passed its tests with “flying colors”. The company has reportedly redesigned the Fold to address the issues with the flexible display.
