It's been over a month since Samsung officially delayed the launch of the Galaxy Fold.

And while June had been pegged for the release, it looks like it is most likely being delayed again.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold Is A Flawed Start To Something Amazing

In a lot of ways, doing a traditional review of the Samsung Galaxy Fold is pointless. Anyone who buys one isn’t doing so because it’s a good value or a sound purchasing decision. It’s not. They’re buying one because it’s new, innovative, and exciting.

The product release was originally pushed back after several reviewers in the U.S. reported defects with the device back in April.

On May 9 Samsung CEO DJ Koh stated that a reschedule plan would be publicly released over the coming weeks.

The company also assured customers who had pre-ordered a Galaxy Fold that they would be refunded if the device had not shipped by May 31.

Details around a further delay have originated from Korean site Yonhap News, which claims that a source revealed that the issues are taking longer to rectify than originally thought.

Considering the documentation of the problems with the devices on social media, this makes a lot of sense.

An with May drawing to a close its looking highly likely that this speculation is correct. A statement from Samsung also seems to confirm the delay. "The release schedule has not been decided, and we are in a position to announce the launch schedule in a few weeks."

The vagueness and lack of hard details certainly seems to point to a post-June release. There is no indication whether Australia will get the Fold at the same time.
