Samsung has redesigned the Galaxy Fold to address the screen durability issues that torpedoed its launch. Reports have been circulating that after fixing defects, folding phone soon to begin commercial production. The company still isn’t able to confirm a release date, however, and one person told Bloomberg that the phone is unlikely to resurface at next month’s Galaxy Note 10 event.
Samsung is said to have made the screen’s protective film “flow into the bezels so it would be impossible to peel off by hand.” Previous review units shipped with a film that looked like a removable screen protector, even though removing it would actually destroy the screen — as some reviewers found out.
The launch date in the US had been set for April 24, but that came and went after the first units to get into people’s hands started suffering some durability problems. As per reports, the following defects were found in the phone.
Earlier Samsung has stated that the Galaxy Fold would open up to make a 7.3in (18.5cm) tablet-like display and would be able to run up to three apps at one time. A demo has presented the “app continuity” features by which the device transferred from one mode to another much more easily than had been the case with a previous fold-able phone that was Royole’s Flex Pai.
