Samsung's Galaxy Fold ran into some problems before its big launch but this hasn't stopped Russian company Caviar from making a super expensive Game of Thrones edition of the foldable device.

One of the most ambitious, expensive - and troubled - phones ever just got more bad news.Credit: Tom's GuideAccording to a forum post on Best Buy, as reported by The Verge, the retailer is cancelling "all current pre-orders" for the $1,980 Samsung Galaxy Fold. Customers that received a cancellation notice of their pre-order from Best Buy may choose to be notified once the item is available.

This doesn't mean you won't be able to purchase the Galaxy Fold from Best Buy in the future, but for now, placing a pre-order is not possible.

Samsung showcased its first foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Fold some time ago but things didn't go as planned for the South Korean smartphone maker.

Because Samsung is still uncertain about the new release date for the Galaxy Fold, Best Buy has chose to cancel all the current pre-orders of the Galaxy Fold.

Newer Galaxy smartphones like the Samsung Galaxy A80 have ditched the headphone jack, so it seems Samsung is following suit behind many other smartphone companies in getting rid of the physical headphone port.

The Samsung Galaxy S10 comes in a few colors, most commonly prism white and black - but we always love a vibrant design in a phone, and so far Samsung handsets have often seemed a little boring.

There have been reports of improvements made to the Galaxy Fold and CEO Dj Koh has been quoted saying, "We will not be too late" when asked if the device will launch by the end of May.
