A Samsung Display executive has revealed that the company has resolved “most” of the issues related in the Galaxy Fold phone, and that the device is ready for launch. “Most of the display problems have been ironed out, and the Galaxy Fold is ready to hit the market,” Samsung Display Vice President Kim Seong-cheol said at a conference held by industry organisation The Korean Information Display Society in Seoul. The Galaxy Fold is the South Korean giant’s first foldable phone. Samsung Display, a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics, is the main supplier of the folding screen.

The Galaxy Fold was initially scheduled to hit the shelves in April in the US and in May in Korea. However, it didn't happen. A number of reviewers in the US reported several display-related issues, like flickering and creases in the part where the display folds. Samsung claimed that this happened because the reviewers removed the protective film from the screen. It was later revealed in an iFixit teardown that the phone had small openings that let tiny particles enter the internals of the phone causing damage to the screen.

It was rumored that the Galaxy Fold launch would take place in July. However, Samsung has denied the rumours. According to a report by the Korea Herald, the company has made “little progress” on the launch of the smartphone. “If we are running such a media event this month, we should be doing something by now. Nothing has progressed since the April delay,” a Samsung official was quoted as saying.

The Samsung Galaxy Fold was launched earlier this year at a price of $1,980 (approx Rs 1.37 lakh). It sports a HD+ Super AMOLED panel. The display on the outside is 4.6 inches in size, and when unfolded, turns into a 7.3-inch tablet screen with a ‘Dynamic AMOLED display’. The handset runs on a “7nm processor,” which is most likely the Samsung Exynos 9820, and comes with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of UFS 3.0 storage. The handset houses a 4380mAh battery.
