After a failed attempt back in April of this year, Samsung is finally ready to relaunch the Galaxy Fold to markets in September this year. Fixes were needed after units that were sent to reviewers started having the screen peel up, or break, so it’s great to see that almost five months later Samsung may have finally found a fix for the Galaxy Fold.
Here’s a list of the design and improvements made to the Galaxy Fold, as provided by Samsung:
- 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.
In addition to the physical improvements, the company is also making some improvements to the user experience including optimizing applications and services for the UX.
Samsung has also provided a few pictures of the updated Galaxy Fold but we’ll see how it holds up when it’s shipped out some time in September 2019. Dates have not been provided yet but when the time gets closer, Samsung will make it known to the whole world.
