In an email sent out to those who have pre-ordered the Galaxy Fold, Samsung says: "Thank you for your patience in waiting for the launch and shipment of your pre-ordered Galaxy Fold".

For those of you who are not in the loop, Samsung encountered some display issues with the Galaxy Fold.
The Galaxy Fold is Samsung's most expensive smartphone to date, retailing for $1,980. After a string of disastrous reviews, including complaints of the screen breaking and small objects getting wedged underneath; Samsung had no choice but to postpone the release date.
Samsung has been facing a two-pronged threat to its smartphone business in India over the last couple of years.
Samsung has handled the Galaxy Fold debacle badly from start to finish, from the way it initially blamed reviewers for causing the screen damage, to the way it put pressure fix specialists iFixit to pull its critical teardown of the device from its site. The reviewers, including CNBC's Steve Kovach, reportedly that the screen started uncontrollably flickering after just a few hours of use.
Samsung is supposedly working on a 50W fast charging technology as seen on Oppo Find X Lambhorgini special edition.
Further, the particular device having a bulge on the display might have had some loose object within that got detached and later got stuck under the display.
