Samsung is not going to release its foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold, in the Netherlands, a company spokesperson said to on Thursday.

"Unfortunately, due to the limited availability of the Galaxy Fold, we have had to review our global launch plan," the Samsung spokesperson explains the decision not to release the smartphone in the Netherlands.

The folding phone would actually appear in the Netherlands for 2.020 euros in May, but Samsung had to postpone that plan due to screen problems.

The Galaxy Fold is for sale in South Korea from Friday and will be released on September 18 in France, Germany and the United Kingdom. Later the phone also comes to the United States.

The smartphone has a 4.6 inch screen on the outside. As soon as users unfold the phone, a 7.3 inch screen can be used on the inside. In addition, apps should automatically adjust to the expanded screen.
