Samsung recently unveiled its most anticipated and futuristic smartphone – Samsung Galaxy Fold. The phone was the South Korean giant’s first foldable smartphone and the first foldable smartphone to hit the market. The Samsung Galaxy Fold, which should be available on the market later this month, has already been offered to a few reviewers and it seems that the build quality is highly questionable.
Many reviewers have made complaints saying that the phone broke down just a few days into using it. Mark Gurman, a reviewer from Bloomberg said that his unit completely broke down and can’t be used at all while Dieter Bohn from The Verge brought a “small bulge” on a defective hinge to the public’s notice. Steve Kovach from CNBS posted a tweet about how his unit has started flickering.
According to Mark German, the display of his Galaxy Fold bursted after he removed a “protective layer/film”. YouTuber Marques Brownlee (MKBHD) gave a similar story saying the display busted after the film was removed. Well, the “protective layer/film” isn’t really a protective film and according to the company, it shouldn’t be removed.
Samsung also responded to the news by releasing a statement in which it said that it “will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter.”
