Earlier this year when Samsung announced the Galaxy Fold, the whole world went crazy and the innovation was amazing. But then the tragedy befell the success and even affected it’s release. But just this past week, the company’s CEO said that internal tests are almost over and that the date the device will be going live will be made public soon.
Although the usage of a first generation Folding smartphone might still end in a serious disaster which makes us to ask questions about what Samsung really did to fix the issues about the device’s ruined screen whenever their protective films are mistakenly ripped off.
A recent report from on Korean outlet tells how far Samsung had gone to fixing those issues with the Galaxy Fold. There were two major issues with the device. The first being the debris finding a way under the display through the part of the device housing the hinge and that renders the device’s screen inoperable.
The second problem with the Galaxy Fold is the protective layer on top of the display which is meant to remain there but can also be easily removed which will in turn damage the screen.
As for the hinge, the report suggests that Samsung had reduced the portion of the device where the hinge is exposed and this reduction doesn’t equate to elimination but this should prevent the debris from getting right under the display from that portion.
And the second problem which is the protective film, the report suggests that Samsung now folds the end of the films right under the screen which would make it very difficult to peel off and also, there will be a big sticker warning against this.
There’s no exact date mentioned by the report when the Galaxy Fold re-launch will happen, but it is allegedly already being tested with Korean carriers.
