A while ago, Samsung said that they plan to delay the release of the Galaxy Fold in order to fix its design issues. But the giant tech company didn’t exactly say how they were planning to address the flaws.
The official announcement read the following:
“We recently unveiled a completely new mobile category (…) We are encouraged by the excitement around the Galaxy Fold.”
Samsung continued and said, “While many reviewers shared with us the vast potential they see, some also showed us how the device needs further improvements that could ensure the best possible user experience. To fully evaluate this feedback and run further internal tests, we have decided to delay the release of the Galaxy Fold.”
Now, Engadget comes with fresh news regarding the subject and how exactly Samsung plans to take care of the issues.
Tucking the protective display layer into the phone’s body
The online publication mentioned above mentioned Yonhap News, which reported that Samsung would be tucking the protective display layer into the body of the phone.
This should prevent users from feeling it off if they believe it’s just a usual screen protector.
Such a move would also block the gaps at the top and bottom of the hinge in order to prevent debris from wrecking the foldable display, reported the outlet from South Korea mentioned by Engadget.
It also seems that the company is testing the Galaxy Fold on Korean networks, and the results would definitely affect the timelines of the release which was scheduled for June according to the South Korean magazine.
It’s not sure whether such tweaks would be enough for everyday users, but we’ll see. These should be able to prevent glaring durability issues, and they might also reassure early adopters that the phone will come in a much better form.
