It's not looking good for the Samsung Galaxy Fold...

Samsung has postponed the release of its folding smartphone, days after several early reviewers said the screens on their devices had broken.

Samsung has not said when the £1,800 device will go on sale.

A new launch date will be announced in the "coming weeks".
