Samsung’s (around Rs 1,37,600) foldable smartphone has a serious problem. The OLED foldable display, the party piece and the much-touted future of smartphones, is breaking within a couple of days of use. Just as the pre-orders for the phone have started in the US, the review devices shared with the media in that part of the world have started to break. The luxury foldable smartphone clearly hasn’t started its journey on an auspicious note.
There are multiple social media posts and write-ups by media in the US illustrating the developing issues with their Galaxy Fold review units. Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, CNBC’s Steve Kovach, The Verge’s Dieter Bohn and popular YouTube tech reviewer Marques Brownlee have all reported that the foldable displays on their Samsung Galaxy Fold are broken.
Samsung has responded to the issues, suggesting they will thoroughly inspect these faltering units. “A limited number of early Galaxy Fold samples were provided to media for review. We have received a few reports regarding the main display on the samples provided. We will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter,” says Samsung.
Bohn shared photos of his Galaxy Fold review device, which had now developed a bulge where the display of Galaxy Fold creases. “There’s something pressing up against the screen at the hinge, right there in the crease. My best guess is that it’s a piece of debris, something harder than lint for sure. It’s possible that it’s something else, though, like the hinge itself on a defective unit pressing up on the screen,” he says.
