Last February, the company said April is the releasing date of the model. The company failed to comply for there was a problem with the unit’s most valuable screen from multiple reviews.
There were a few issues so they still managed to put the issue as the end user’s fault. However, too many concerns were hitting the company to the extent of delaying the releasing date to solve the issue.
For almost three months the company did some updates and iterations to the model, finally, Samsung has a strong will to the final output that they have.
September, the company announced as the launching date of the device. They did not confirm the concrete date especially the year is contrary to their previous promise “coming weeks” line that was said for about a few months now.
The company then released a concrete list of the updates that pretty much what everyone has been expecting.
The top protective layer of the Infinity Flex Display has been extended beyond the bezel, making it apparent that it is an integral part of the display structure and not meant to be removed.
Galaxy Fold features additional reinforcements to better protect the device from external particles while maintaining its signature foldable experience:
The top and bottom of the hinge area have been strengthened with newly added protection caps
Additional metal layers underneath the Infinity Flex Display have been included to reinforce the protection of the display
The space between the hinge and body of Galaxy Fold has been reduced. The said fix as well hides the corners of the model that removes the temptation to peel them.
On the other hand, the next three bullet points are the responses for a large design flaw, that allowed particles to fall between hinges.
“Samsung has taken the time to fully evaluate the product design,” Samsung writes, “make necessary improvements and run rigorous tests to validate the changes we made.”
The said issue though doesn’t pull the company down for the bugs were discovered and fixed just before it is released to the market. The company then teased the market regarding its release details, promising a “closer to launch.”
