Perhaps a few extra days will give Samsung chance to make it clearer that the screen cover shouldn't be removed under any circumstances (don't forget this if you're planning to pick up a Galaxy Fold of your own).
Reports have surfaced over the past couple of days of Galaxy Fold devices breaking.
It's worth noting that there hasn't been a single early reviewer so far that has actually recommended the Galaxy Fold.

If convicted, Raniere and Mack each face mandatory minimum sentences of 15 years imprisonment, and up to life imprisonment. Keith Raniere is now being held without bail after his March 2018 arrest on sex trafficking charges.
But given how most reports of device breakage stemmed from journalists inadvertently removing the protective covering on the phone, odds are that the Korean tech giant is delaying the event to add more noticeable warnings so as to prevent device owners from removing them in the first place.
Now, coincidentally, Samsung have postponed the launch of the Galaxy Fold in China. "We will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter", the company said. As stock prices fell, Samsung has gone into damage control mode by postponing press events originally scheduled for this week in China. Currently, Samsung is still set to release the Galaxy Fold in the US on April 26.
The Galaxy Fold is quite literally the first product of its kind to hit the market, so teething issues are bound to happen.
The handset maker obviously doesn't want to associate these delays with the broken review units, but given the timing, chances are Samsung wants to buy more time to address these issues before the next wave of shipments, according to the Engadget.
