Samsung Wants You To Trust The Galaxy Fold

Samsung Wants You To Trust The Galaxy Fold

A video released by Samsung today (March 27) shows a demonstration of the "folding test" that apparently all Galaxy Folds are put through before being boxed up for sale. The video also highlights the phone's bending capabilities as well as durability of Infinity Flex Display. On the contrary, Chinese smartphone manufacturer Huawei has already declared its plan to launch its foldable screen device, the Huawei Mate X, in India by the end of this year.

At 100 times a day, that's around five years of use - well outside the current time people hang on to smartphones (which, in Australia, is around three years.) And a recent report from Deloitte on smartphone use showed that we are hanging on to our phones for longer periods.

South Korean electronics giant Samsung in February showcased its new category of foldable devices with the announcement of the Galaxy Fold.

Recently, Samsung launched its new A series smartphone - Samsung Galaxy A70. The company has used a new display on Galaxy Fold, which it says is around 50 per cent thinner than the standard smartphone display and allows the phone to fold seamlessly. In the video, however, the implementation of hinge design looks pretty neat. And to make matters worse, the size of that 5 inch "Cover Screen" relative to the actual exterior dimensions of the Galaxy Fold gives the Galaxy Fold massive bezels that create the impression that there's a lot of wasted space. The Samsung Galaxy Tab A 8.0 is backed by a 4,300 mAh battery which promises to offer 11 of web browsing on a single charge.
