Following weeks of breathless anticipation, Samsung has pushed back the release of its much-awaited Galaxy Fold. The delay comes after a series of embarrassing reviews, which have made it clear that the phone is every bit as fundamentally flawed as it looks. According to a statement from Samsung quoted in the Wall Street Journal, the April 26 release date has now been shelved so that the smartphone maker can deal with issues surrounding the Fold’s display.

Samsung had already started taking pre-orders for the $1,980 phone, billed as the next big innovation in the dynamic world of smartphones. Several reviewers, however, reported similar problems with the phone’s display, prompting Samsung to hurriedly postpone the release date and issue an explanation filled with empty corporate-speak.
