Samsung chief executive takes blame over Galaxy Fold’s failed launch

Following flak from tech reviewers having issues with Samsung’s first foldable phone Galaxy Fold, Samsung CEO DJ Koh took the blame for the failures of the unit which was launched even before it was ready.

In a report by Independent, Koh said while speaking with select media outlets in Seoul, south Korea, that he is to be blamed for pushing the launch of the Galaxy fold and described it as “embarrassing.”

“It was embarrassing. I pushed it through before it was ready,” said Koh.

“I do admit I missed something on the foldable phone, but we are in the process of recovery. At the moment, more than 2,000 devices are being tested right now in all aspects. We defined all the issues. Some issues we didn’t even think about, but thanks to our reviewers, mass volume testing is ongoing,” Samsung’s CEO added.

Samsung earlier announced the Galaxy Fold delay following poor reviews from tech reviewers, including its easily broken screen and display.

Huawei which has also been working on Mate X folding phone also postponed its launching to avoid such mistakes.
