Samsung Corporation announced the solution of problems with the screens of bending Galaxy Fold smartphones and announced the start of sales. The press service of the company reported.
The company noted that they have changed some elements of the case to improve the reliability of the phone. The protective layer, which in some cases was peeled off, is increased and now adjoins closely to the frame of the device. As a result, this tape is now perceived as an integral part of the display. At the same time, Samsung strengthened the upper and lower part of the hinges, and an additional layer of metal was installed under the display to strengthen the design. The phone will go on sale on September 2019.
Folding smartphone Galaxy Fold presented in the spring of 2019 and was supposed to go on sale in April. However, a few days before the release, journalists said about the unreliability of the device. So, Mark Gurman from Bloomberg told that after removal of a protective film on the screen on a place of a bend the crack was formed. According to him, two of his colleagues had the same problem without removing the tape. Editor of The Verge Dieter Bon said that under the protective layer of his Galaxy Fold got dust, which on the screen there were two green stripes.
Samsung Galaxy Fold has two screens: the main one with a diagonal of 4.6 inches and an additional 7.3-inch, which becomes available only when the device is unfolded. In tablet mode, you can run three applications at the same time.
