When Samsung announced the Galaxy Fold smartphone last month, the foldable phone became a reality. It was a proof of concept, and it felt good to see something new in the smartphone industry after a lot of years. The Galaxy Fold comes with all the latest specs you’d expect from a $2000 phone and gives us a look at the future of smartphone technology.
Galaxy Fold is set to release in the US on the 26th April, but it seems like it has encountered a major roadblock before its launch. Samsung has sent out multiple review units to various media partners and tech Youtubers for review and now reports of Galaxy Fold’s display being faulty after only two day’s of use is coming left and right.
Samsung has also released an official statement regarding the same but let’s first take a look at what’s going on with these devices. Some Galaxy Fold devices which have been given to reviewers and media outlets are having severe display issues. Some devices are having a flickering display while some Galaxy Fold devices are simply breaking on normal use. Samsung did claim at the time of its launch that phone can withstand 200,000 folds, but that’s not the case here.
Here’s what Samsung had to say about this –
“Some limited Galaxy Fold samples were provided to the media outlets for review. We have received some reports regarding the main display on the samples provided. We will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter”
Getting these issues surface up on the Internet just before the launch is the worst thing Samsung could have imagined before the launch of its next big thing, We’ll advise everyone who’s looking to get a Galaxy Fold to wait for a few weeks and first see what Samsung does to take care of this issue.
