In April, and just three days before its launch in the United States, the South Korean company was forced to postpone its commercialization due to a series of failures detected in the touch panel or on the hinges of the devices that were provided for testing several journalists.
The case reminded the fiasco suffered by the company with its Galaxy Note 7 model, which due to a series of battery failures forced Samsung in 2016 to make a massive redial (about 2.5 million devices) and resulted in a loss operating of more than 4,800 million euros.
Doubts about the viability of this type of technology also led one of Samsung's main competitors, the Chinese company Huawei, to delay until November the launch of its first foldable smart phone, the Mate X.
Samsung said in the statement published Thursday that during the last few months "the Galaxy Fold has been refined," a device that according to the president of the company's mobile communication branch, DJ Koh, "defies the barriers of traditional smartphone design ".
