Galaxy Fold pre-orders cancelled by carrier

AT&T has cancelled Galaxy Fold pre-orders.

Samsung's foldable phone already missed its April release date as the tech giant sought to fix problems with the device, but it seems that has now had a knock on affect to customers, carriers and retailers.

The email to customers read: "Thanks for your recent order for the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Fold.

"Unfortunately, Samsung delayed the release of the Fold, which means we can't ship your phone and have to cancel your pre-order."

Last month, Samsung co-CEO DJ Koh - who is responsible for the tech giant's mobile business - opened up about the device's recent issues which have delayed its launch, and he suggested a solution may have been found as they worked towards a new release date.

He claimed the company "will not be too late" when it comes to shipping to the US within the month.

He added that Samsung "has reviewed the defect caused from substances [that entered the device], and we will reach a conclusion today or tomorrow [on the launch]".

The $1,980 phone was due to be released on April 26, but was forced to push it back after several reviewers reported having damaged screens.

In a statement, Samsung vowed to "thoroughly inspect" the product to find out what is causing the problem.

They said: "A limited number of early Galaxy Fold samples were provided to media for review. We have received a few reports regarding the main display on the samples provided.

"We will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter."
