The Galaxy Home was announced alongside the Galaxy Note9 back in August of last year, but it's been radio silence for the Bixby smart speaker since then.

[Update: Best Buy, too] Samsung is canceling Galaxy Fold pre-orders for those who don't specifically opt back in

The Galaxy Fold faces an ill-fated start: First praised as the future of mobile computing, test devices sent out to reviewers failed left and right and led the company to postpone the official launch to an unspecified date. Now, Samsung is sending out emails to customers who pre-ordered the phone, telling them there's still no shipping date and that orders are automatically canceled if they don't opt-in to keep their order.

Bethesda delays The Elder Scrolls: Blades until early 2019

Bethesda has announced that The Elder Scrolls: Blades will now be released in early 2019. Back in June our own Corbin Davenport went hands-on with the title on the show floor of E3, which is where Todd Howard had teased the original release date of fall 2018. With the current kerfuffle surrounding Bethesda's Fallout 76, it would appear that it's probably not in the best interest of the company to publish a free-to-play game that takes advantage of the fan-favorite Elder Scrolls license, potentially explaining this unexpected delay.

Samsung's foldable smartphone could definitely maybe launch in December 2018

We've been hearing about Samsung's smartphone with a foldable screen for what seems like an eternity, but it looks like we'll have to wait a little longer to finally see the thing. Flexible screens have been demoed at trade shows for years, but getting them into a production-ready phone is another matter entirely. Samsung had seemed the most likely to make this dream a reality, but it must be as hard to do as it sounds — the project keeps getting put back.

Essential misses its promised 30-day shipping period for the Essential phone

Android co-founder Andy Rubin finally revealed the Essential phone at the end of May, after months of rumors and teasers. The main selling point is the near-bezeless display, but it also has all the other features you would expect from a 2017 flagship. There's a Snapdragon 835 processor, 4GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and a 3,040mAh battery. It also supports modular accessories (much like Moto Mods), starting with a tiny 360-degree camera.

When the phone was unveiled, Andy Rubin stated that the phone would ship within 30 days.
