Samsung’s Galaxy Fold — the $1,980 folding phone whose launch has been delayed after several reviewers reported issues with the screen — might launch on June 13.
This is according to an email that AT&T has been sending to its customers — but, unfortunately, it’s not as simple as that.
As The Verge points out, Samsung hasn’t confirmed June 13 — or any other date — as the new, official launch date. Furthermore, AT&T’s email to customers says that “federal regulations” require the company to ask customers to accept a new shipping date, which might mean AT&T had to choose some date and they went with what they thought was most likely.
Officially, Samsung said it needed time to evaluate the feedback from early reviewers, which is why it had to delay the Fold’s launch. “We plan to announce the release date in the coming weeks,” the company said on Monday.
The Samsung Galaxy Fold is one of the first of its kind — a foldable smartphone whose 4.6-inch display unfolds into a 7.3-inch tablet. It’s got a 7-nanometer processor, 12GB of RAM, 512GB of storage, and a total of six cameras: a 10-megapixel shooter on the cover, a dual, 10/8-megapixel selfie camera on the front, and a triple, 16/12/12-megapixel camera on the rear.
