Samsung postponed the release of the Galaxy Fold smartphone with a flexible screen until at least May, the Wall Street Journal reported . Initially, the device was supposed to be released on April 26, but several observers immediately stated that during testing the phone they had problems with the display.

According to WSJ sources, Samsung decided not to release the Galaxy Fold in April after reports of breakdowns. At the same time, company representatives initially stated that the problems of the devices would not prevent them from being sold on time. Sources of publications say that now the smartphone will appear “in a few weeks.”

On April 18, several observers at once told about the problems of Galaxy Fold , including journalists from The Verge, CNBC, Bloomberg, and also blogger Marquez Brownlee. They reported a flexible screen failure after two days of use. Three of them tore off the protective film of the display, which could not be removed.

Samsung representatives have not yet commented on the WSJ data on the delayed release of Galaxy Fold.

Galaxy Fold will start selling in Russia in May. At prices ranging from 150 to 200 thousand rubles
