Announced at Mobile World Congress this year, Samsung's Galaxy Fold has all but folded. Reviewers had problems with the display, which Samsung initially blamed on removing the plastic on the front. Soon enough though, the company postponed the launch of the Galaxy Fold so it could go back to the drawing board.
Today, Best Buy has officially canceled all pre-orders for the device. In a support article where a Best Buy social media specialist praises the innovations of the Galaxy Fold, the retailer promises that it's still working with Samsung to deliver the foldable handset.
However, with breakthrough designs and technology come many hurdles and the possibility to face a plethora of unforeseen hiccups. These hurdles have led Samsung to postpone the release of the Galaxy Fold, and Samsung has not provided a new release date. Because we put our customers first and want to ensure they are taken care of in the best possible manner, Best Buy has decided to cancel all current pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
You can still sign up to be notified when the Galaxy Fold is available, although there's no release date. In fact, there isn't even a ballpark timeframe for when the smartphone will ship. It's probably a safe bet that we won't see it anytime soon though, being that pre-orders are being canceled.
