- AT&T has cancelled all pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
- Customers will be refunded the full amount along with a $100 promo card.
- AT&T had originally stated the device would launch on June 13.
Things aren't going well for the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The device, which was supposed to launch two months ago, suffered another setback with AT&T cancelling all pre-orders for the device following a series of delays.
First reported by Tom's Guide, AT&T has sent an email to customers who pre-ordered the Galaxy Fold informing them that they will receive a full refund for the $1,980 device and a $100 AT&T promo card.
Customers who receive the $100 promo card should get it within the next 60 days. Once Samsung announces a new release date for the Galaxy Fold, customers can re-order the device.
AT&T's move follows Best Buy and Samsung in their cancellation of Galaxy Fold pre-orders. Originally set to be released in April, the Galaxy Fold seemed to be Samsung's next breakthrough before multiple review units began to break after only a few days of use.
Amid the backlash, Samsung delayed the device for an unspecified amount of time to work out some of the issues. It appears it still has not done so, hence the continued delay of the Galaxy Fold.
Samsung, for its part, is still referring questions to the statement it made back in April when the phone was originally delayed, claiming the Fold will release "in the coming weeks."
