    Samsung has postponed its foldable phones launch events in China


    Samsung is postponing its China launch event for its foldable smartphone just days after reports of defective screens on the nearly $1,980 device, Samsung announced that it has postponed the press events in Hong Kong and Shanghai, which were originally scheduled for April 23rd and 24th i.e. this coming Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively.




    Samsung’s Galaxy Fold, unveiled in full in February, is slated to go on sale on April 26 in select markets including the U.S. CNBC has asked Samsung to clarify whether the postponement of the China event will affect when the device goes on sale in other markets, but the company has yet to answer that query.
    While no launch date had been announced for the Greater China regions prior to their latest event arrangements, it's still likely that local folks will have to wait a little longer before getting their hands on this foldable phone.
    In a statement following the reports of damaged screens, Samsung advised users not to remove the protective film and said it was looking into the issue.
    Samsung obviously doesn't want to associate these delays with the broken review units, but given the timing, chances are the company wants to buy more time to address these issues before the next wave of shipments.
