Canada has a lot to appreciate: maple syrup, scenic landscapes, a flag with a leaf on it, you name it. But until now, the country was lacking one thing: the Samsung Galaxy Fold. I have no idea how the people of Canada managed to survive without access to Samsung's latest flagship, but now the phone has officially arrived in the country.

After undergoing some growing pains, the Galaxy Fold was finally released in September following a five-month delay due to a game-stopping screen defect.

[Update: Live snuff film] New Galaxy Fold durability test draws fresh attention to fragile display and hinge

The Samsung Galaxy Fold's original May release had to be pushed back a few months due to issues with debris getting into the hinge and breaking the inner screen. The revised version is finally available for purchase, but it's still a delicate device prone to breakage, something that's evident in JerryRigEverything's stress test and the multitude of warnings included with the phone. But even if you're extra careful around it, questions remain about how well the Fold... folds. Insurance firm SquareTrade took it upon itself to test how the device holds up against this regular everyday use case.

Some tech journalists received their pre-production units in April only to have them break and be returned to Samsung for investigation. As before, the Samsung Galaxy Fold is in the hands of tech journalists and it has, once again, broken down - at least for one reviewer.

Samsung will replace your first broken Galaxy Fold display for $149

The Galaxy Fold is one of the most troubled smartphones in recent memory, and it hasn't even hit store shelves, yet. From being reengineered after rogue tech reviewers savagely ripped what appeared to be screen protectors right out of the displays, to failing basic legs of JerryRigEverything's device torture test, the pressure for a successful launch has been mounting. In an attempt to ease consumer concerns regarding the Fold's fragile display, Samsung has officially announced a screen replacement program for early adopters.

The company has updated its lists of devices supporting HD and HDR10 playback to include a number of new flagships like the Samsung Galaxy Note10, Fold, and Tab S6, plus the Asus ROG Phone II – among them, you'll also find the unreleased Pixel 4 and 4 XL.

The Galaxy Fold has already lost one US carrier partner for its re-launch

The Galaxy Fold famously crashed and burned this spring thanks to its design letting dust work its way into the screen. After months of delays and a redesign, the phone is finally slated to launch in September. T-Mobile seems to have had enough of all the rigmarole, though, as the carrier has said that it won't be selling the refreshed Fold come launch.

Samsung Galaxy Fold reportedly won't ship in June

The integrity of the Samsung Galaxy Fold's design was shown to be questionable (at best) shortly after pre-release models reached the hands of the first round of reviewers. Debris made its way into their screens, causing several early hardware failures, and release was delayed from April 26 to an unspecified later date. AT&T made it seem like the new date would be mid-June, but a new report out of Korea contradicts that.
