Red-face moment for Samsung, again

Samsung Electronics is retrieving all Galaxy Fold samples distributed to reviewers, a person with direct knowledge of the matter said yesterday, as the firm smarts from the reputational blow of postponing the launch of its first foldable smartphone.

The South Korean tech giant met with embarrassment ahead of the device’s US release on Friday, with a handful of technology journalists reporting breaks, bulges and blinking screens after just a day’s use.

Samsung postponed the Galaxy Fold’s launch for an unspecified period while it investigated the damage reports, it said on Monday. Initial findings, it said, pointed to impact on exposed areas of the screen’s hinges.

A representative declined to comment yesterday.
