Samsung will launch Fold phone despite concerns

Local News

Samsung says it has no plans to delay next week’s launch of its latest smartphone, despite reports that the devices can easily break.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold costs nearly $2,000.

The smartphone is able to open up into a tablet.

But some reviewers who got a sneak preview of the Galaxy Fold say they found defective hinges on the device.

Not only that, but they say the screens broke after removing the phone’s protective film.

In a statement, Samsung says removing the film or adding adhesives to the screen may cause damage.

But the company will not push back the Galaxy Fold’s April 26th launch.

Pre-orders for the phone have already sold out online.
