Samsung's journey towards the launch of its folding phone has been long and fraught with difficulties so far. Before it was even released, there were several reports of the Galaxy Fold facing functional problems such as flickering display and breakage. Following these accounts, the South Korean phone-maker cancelled all pre-orders for the device and moved the official release date to an unspecified point in the future.
According to Max Weinbach, an unnamed source informed him that the Galaxy Fold might be released as early as next month, in July 2019. Additionally, a Korean news website claims that an employee of Samsung spoke to a reporter at Gimpo International Airport, Seoul, disclosing that the Samsung Galaxy Fold could possibly debut in July and that a press conference will be held before the phone is launched.
Rumors like this have been in circulation ever since Samsung postponed the release of the Galaxy Fold. Just last month, another Korean news agency - Yonhap News Agency - claimed that Samsung was testing the device with local carriers and planned on releasing the foldable device in June. Fast forward to today - we're exactly one week into June and there hasn't been a word from Samsung concerning the new release date so far.
Speaking of the Galaxy Fold, another source recently claimed that Samsung is working in collaboration with Korean video game publisher Nexon to create the first exclusive game for its folding smartphone. Apparently, the Korean video game maker's popular title Traha will be the first game created especially for the Galaxy Fold. Developed using Unreal Engine 4 by indie developer Moai Games, Traha is an MMORPG mobile game and it is already available for download to South Korean users. The source suggests that the game might launch on the same day as the Galaxy Fold.
As of right now, Samsung has yet to respond or release any kind of official statement regarding these rumors.
