Leaked email hints at new Samsung Galaxy Fold release date
In an ideal world, the probable future of smartphone technology would have been officially unveiled by Samsung on April 26, 2019. However, a number of negative reports on the Galaxy Fold's flexible screen on the part of multiple prominent reviewers put a sizeable ding in the enthusiasm surrounding its release, not least for its maker.
Accordingly, Samsung postponed its freshest launch in years while it sorted out the Galaxy Fold's apparent failures. The OEM has also not clarified when the device will be ready for sale again. However, a post submitted to Twitter by the user @MightyDroid may have shed more light on this mystery.
This account claims to have gotten hold of an email allegedly sent by the US carrier AT&T. It apparently advises that shipping for the Galaxy Fold will resume on June 13, 2019, whereas this was originally scheduled for April 24.
Therefore, June 13 may be the foldable's new release date, in one country at least. However, should this be the case, it is not yet clear if Samsung will still beat Huawei to the launch of this OEM's own flexible phone, the Mate X.
