Pre-testing folding smartphoneSamsung Galaxy Fold revealed a number of problems with the screen of a unique device, which eventually led to the transfer of the date of the official release of the gadget to the market. Samsung’s official announcement of the changes planned in the Galaxy Fold has not yet appeared, which is why traditionally the community uses insider information.
According to unconfirmed information, the developershave planned a few changes. One of the reasons for the failure of the displays of tested smartphones was the removal of the protective layer of the screen, which in this model is a structural, integral part of the screen. Therefore, engineers have turned up a protective coating of a flexible screen under the frame. Due to this, the desire to remove it will not arise, because the previously visible edge of the film will disappear from the eyes of curious experimenters. In this case, a warning about the prohibition of the dismantling of the protective layer will be placed directly on the original box of Galaxy Fold.
In addition, changes will be made to the designhinge mechanisms in order to prevent foreign objects and dust from getting inside the smartphone, which also accelerated the failure of test smartphones.
Currently in South Korea passtests of the improved Galaxy Fold, after which the Samsung Galaxy Fold sales launch date is expected to be announced. According to insiders, this event will take place in June this year.
