However, before it hit retail, reviewers who used the device ran into issues related to the screen protector, the display etc. The phone’s release was delayed as a result of this. Several months went by, and the company fixed the issues by redesigning the device and about two weeks ago, the Galaxy Fold went on sale in the US.
