After the Galaxy Fold’s launch a couple of months ago, a lot of people who got their hands on the device complained that the screen is just coming off! Either it was coming automatically off due to some dust particles, or people like MKBHD removed the protective screen themselves thinking that it’s supposed to be removed!
Apparently, Samsung took back all the units and promised us to fix the problems. And here we are. Samsung finally says that it has solved all the problems with the Galaxy Fold and now it’s ready to launch it again.
In fact, Samsung has detailed the latest Galaxy Fold developments in a news release. Samsung says that the Galaxy Fold will be coming out in “select markets” in September. This is after the Galaxy Note 10 launch.
Samsung says that it “has taken the time to fully evaluate the product design, make necessary improvements and run rigorous tests to validate the changes we made.”
New Changes and Improvements
The protective layer now extends beyond the edges of the display panel and integrate into the bezel. This is “making it apparent that it is an integral part of the display structure and not meant to be removed.”
Samsung also made additional changes to reduce the chances that “external particles” make their way into the screen mechanism. The hinge is also strengthened. Now there is now more metal structure underneath the display, and there are end caps on the top and bottom of the hinge.
The updated Galaxy Fold looks promising. Let’s hope we don’t encounter further problems with the device.
