Samsung 官方公佈延遲推出 Galaxy Fold

Galaxy Fold

終於要延遲! 昨晚 WSJ 搶先披露 Samsung 會延遲推出 Galaxy Fold,而 Samsung 官方之後發出新聞稿公佈會延遲推出 Galaxy Fold。

Samsung 為了全面評估早前 Review Units 的屏幕問題,以及進行更多的測試,所以決定將 Galaxy Fold 推出日期延遲,並計劃在未來數星期公佈新的推出日期。


今次事件讓人聯想到幾年前的 Note 7。幸好今次那些 Review Units 出事,讓 Samsung 及早察覺問題延遲開售,若果是到了消費者手中才大規模出事,問題就可能更難收拾。

Samsung to Postpone the Launch of the Galaxy Fold

We recently unveiled a completely new mobile category: a smartphone using multiple new technologies and materials to create a display that is flexible enough to fold. We are encouraged by the excitement around the Galaxy Fold.
While many reviewers shared with us the vast potential they see, some also showed us how the device needs further improvements that could ensure the best possible user experience.
To fully evaluate this feedback and run further internal tests, we have decided to delay the release of the Galaxy Fold. We plan to announce the release date in the coming weeks.
Initial findings from the inspection of reported issues on the display showed that they could be associated with impact on the top and bottom exposed areas of the hinge. There was also an instance where substances found inside the device affected the display performance.
We will take measures to strengthen the display protection. We will also enhance the guidance on care and use of the display including the protective layer so that our customers get the most out of their Galaxy Fold.
We value the trust our customers place in us and they are always our top priority. Samsung is committed to working closely with customers and partners to move the industry forward. We want to thank them for their patience and understanding.
