Following the issues in early review units of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, the company decided to recall the review units and also promised that they would be making changes to improve on the durability of the handset. Unfortunately, Samsung did not state when the improved models will be released, but it seems that it might not be anytime soon.


In a post on the Best Buy forums, the retailer has announced that they will be cancelling all pre-orders of the handset placed through them. According to Best Buy, “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.”

Now, this doesn’t mean that Best Buy will never sell the Galaxy Fold again. We imagine that when Samsung eventually nails a release date that the retailer will probably start taking orders again, but in the meantime, those who did place their pre-orders through Best Buy will need to go through the entire process again.

In the meantime, Best Buy has pointed customers towards the Galaxy Fold’s landing page where they can leave their email address and be notified when the phone does become available again.
