A YouTube channel called phoneoftime recently uploaded a video that shows what is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy Fold. What startles viewers is the fact that the foldable phone from Samsung is supposed to be released on the 26th of April, and the phone in the video has a visible crease when it is on tablet mode.
The crease is visible right in the middle of the phone
To make the new phone foldable, Samsung uses the “Infinity Flex” display instead of regular glass on its current phones. This screen is made of plastic so it is possible that after being fold and unfold a few times, creases might start showing.
According to a report from Bloomberg earlier this month, Samsung is trying to address this creasing issue on its upcoming phone. It also revealed that the crease would be visible after the phone being flipped around 10,000 times.
The creases seem to appear on the protective film on the sensor, which was partly why the prototype was put in a case at MWC in Barcelona. The company is thinking about replacing the screen for free for owners of the new Samsung Galaxy Fold.
The crease was why the phone was put in a glass case
Some people said that since Samsung was aware of this downer on its latest foldable phone, it did not want users to have early hands-on experience with the phone. However, the company denied this accusation by saying that it did not want the Galaxy Fold to take all the limelight away from the new S10.
Samsung planned to release over 1 million Galaxy Fold smartphones in the year 2019 in an attempt to get consumers’ interest back. With the appealing price that many Chinese phone makers offer and the fact that recent upgrades are more like additions than a real breakthrough, no wonder why it needs something like a foldable phone to win customers back.
