Galaxy Fold, released on the eve of this year's World Mobile Communications Congress for $1980, is currently available only to the media for commentators. It is expected to be officially launched in the United States and other countries and regions later this month.
But at this critical juncture, foreign media commentators today gave disappointing results, many testsMobile phoneThere are various problems with the screen.
Samsung started accepting Galaxy Folds bookings over the weekend, but soon oversupply. This shows that, at least before the official launch, the supply of the mobile phone is still limited. As a result, Samsung Electronics shares fell more than 3% today.
Daniel Yoo, director of global strategic research at Kiwoom Securities, a Korean securities firm, said the fall in Samsung's share price was related to Galaxy Fold's disappointing results. Investors also expressed concern about Samsung's share of the 5G standard. "After Qualcomm settled with Apple, the market's expectations for 5G are very high," said Daniel Yoo.
Yesterday, Qualcomm settled all lawsuits worldwide with Apple, which agreed to pay Qualcomm royalties. The two companies have reached a six-year patent licensing agreement, which will take effect from 1 January, including an option to extend the two-year period. In addition, the two sides have reached a multi-year chip procurement agreement.
Analysts have previously said that legal disputes between Qualcomm and Apple could delay Apple's plans to support 5G networks. But now, the reconciliation is that Apple uses Qualcomm's modem to release 5G ahead of time.IPhoneIt provides possibilities.
According to Daniel Yoo, Samsung's Galaxy S10 and Fold currently lead the 5G mobile phone market. If demand slows down due to quality control, it will have a considerable negative impact on the entire IT industry. Originally, demand for chips was already weak in the first half of this year.
Samsung said in a statement that it was evaluating reports of screen problems that appeared in Galaxy Fold's evaluation.
Samsung said: "We have provided the media with a limited number of early versions of Galaxy Fold prototypes for evaluation. Recently, we have received a report on screen problems, the company will conduct a thorough investigation of these mobile phones to determine the reasons.
Daniel Yoo also said that media coverage of some screen problems seemed to be "too tense" and that some problems might be resolved before the official launch.
