Subsequently, rumors emerged that the Fold could be presented to the Korean press in June and that it will go on sale in July, according to the Korea Herald. Last week, Koh Dong-jin, head of Samsung's smart phone business unit, told Korean media that the phone will arrive in July, also according to a report from the Korea Herald.

However, a Samsung official denied that date. "Nothing has changed since the event was postponed in April," said the report, citing a Samsung official.

The company said in May that there will be a new release date for the Galaxy Fold in the "coming weeks."

Earlier this week, AT&T sent cancellation announcements to those who had paid the Galaxy Fold in presale, arguing Samsung's delay in device launch. Users who purchased the Fold in advance will receive AT&T promotional credit for US $ 100.

In May, Best Buy cancel Galaxy Fold orders because Samsung does not offer a new release date.
