AT & T has canceled the pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Fold amid uncertainty about the release date of the folding handset (via Tom & # 39; s guide). AT & T started emailing customers to announce the pre-order cancellation yesterday, after it was previously suggested that the Galaxy Fold would be shipped on 13 June.
Samsung was originally set to release the Fold, the first folding display smartphone, on April 26. However, the company had to postpone the device on April 22 after reviewers had discovered problems with the display.
Samsung has not yet announced a new release date, forcing retailers to take action. Best Buy has canceled it pre-orders from customers on May 23, putting pressure on AT & T to also make a decision. T-Mobile, the only other confirmed US Galaxy Fold courier, has not opened pre-orders.
According to AT & T & # 39; s pre-order cancellation email, all money that has already been used for the $ 1,980 smartphone is refunded and the money in possession is released. In addition, AT&T will send a $ 100 promotional card to its pre-orders customers to thank them for their patience in this matter – those cards are set to arrive at their Galaxy Fold delivery address within the next 60 days.
When will the Galaxy Fold arrive?
Samsung says it still improves & # 39; s the Galaxy Fold & # 39; and, earlier this week, a company spokesperson said a new release date would be announced, & # 39; in the coming weeks & # 39 ;.
At the time of cancellation of Best Buy pre-order three weeks ago, Samsung also told us that a decision on the release date would be made "in the coming weeks." Meanwhile, in early May, Samsung Boss DJ Koh said the phone's released timeline would be unveiled within a few days.
So, to answer the question in the subtitle, we have no idea.
