Some Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Watch 4 models are reportedly facing delays

Not every model seems to be affected by delays.

What you need to know

  • The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Watch 4 are reportedly facing delays.
  • Some customers have received notices that their devices won't arrive until mid-September.
  • Samsung's new foldables have already proven to be popular, showing "strong global consumer demand."

Samsung has hyped up its new "mainstream" foldable, and it seems to be working out well for the company. Almost too well, as there are reports that some Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Watch 4 models are already facing delays due to unexpected demand.

AllAboutSamsung has received screenshots of emails from Samsung explaining to customers that their orders will take longer to reach them due to "unforeseen delivery bottlenecks." The company states that while accessories may reach the customer sooner, the expected delivery time for the device is mid-September.

The emails appear to be in German, so it's possible that these delays could be affecting only certain models in certain regions, especially since some devices are reportedly reaching customers early. AllAboutSamsung notes that it appears to affect the 46mm Watch 4 LTE and the 512GB Galaxy Z Fold 3; however, we've reached out to Samsung for additional details and will update if we hear back.

It's not too surprising that Samsung would find itself in a bind. The company appears to be achieving impressive order numbers for its new foldables and apparently did not expect the successors of the best foldable phones to be so popular. This week, Samsung told Android Central that interest in foldables "is at an all-time high" and that volume for its new foldables is "already outpacing total sales for Galaxy Z devices to date in 2021."

Additionally, as the first Wear OS 3 smartwatch, the Galaxy Watch 4 has a lot riding on it, but it appears to be a winner so far.

How to watch England vs India: Live stream Fourth Test cricket online

England managed to dismiss India for just 78 on Day 1 in a scintillating bowling display, but there was even better to come from the hosts' top-order batting, with all of the top three managing to notch up half-centuries in their first innings. Skipper Root meanwhile continued his extraordinary 2021 form, clocking up yet another three-figure score. With a buoyant home side now hoping to carry on where they left off, India captain Virat Kohli and head coach Ravi Shastri must unravel how their attack was so routinely undone with the new ball last time out. Kohli himself will also need to do more leading from the front, with the normally reliably prolific batsman having scored no more than 55 during any inni
