Samsung delays Galaxy Fold phone launch over screen problems

Last week, reviewers started posting problems with the device on Twitter, but as of Friday, the company did not know the root cause of the screen defects, according to Patrick Moorhead, founder of Moor Insights & Strategy, who said he was in direct contact with the company.
About 50 units of the $1,980 foldable device had been sent for review to journalists, analysts and bloggers in the United States ahead of a planned April 26 launch, Moorhead said.
While Samsung has not said how long the delay could be or whether the production of the unit has halted completely, some analysts said the delay was minor compared to the massive recall and production halt that the company endured with its Galaxy Note 7 in 2016.
