The Samsung Galaxy Fold, the first foldable smartphone of the Korean brand, continues to generate controversy: the preorders of the device will be canceled automatically if the company does not send the mobile phone by the end of the month.
"If we do not hear from you and have not shipped by May 31, your order will be automatically canceled," says an e-mail that Samsung sent to customers who pre-ordered Galaxy Fold, at a price to 2 thousand euros.
Samsung has confirmed the e-mail, indicating compliance with US federal regulations as the reason for sending it. The company adds that in this way "customers are given the option to keep the order beyond the date or cancel it at any time." In a statement, Samsung also noted "continues to make progress in improving Galaxy Fold". However, "a new release date has yet to be announced."
The device was originally scheduled for late April, but when several test units made available to journalists broke easily, the Korean giant decided to postpone the date indefinitely.
