Video Shows Samsung Galaxy Fold Screen Toughness Test But Does It Crease
The Samsung Galaxy Fold will hit the market starting April 26th . However, a small circle of users belonging to the well-known XDA community is already testing it. The South Korean company has strictly forbidden the distribution of video and photographic material, but it is possible to share the first impressions of use. From this point of view, the folding smartphone seems to convince, especially in relation to one of the aspects on which there is more curiosity: the screen.
Mishaal Rahman, Editor in Chief of XDA, has in fact organized a Q&A session on Twitter , summarizing the opinions that emerged in the community regarding the Galaxy Fold, obviously from those few who are using it. The fold between the two halves of the flexible display does not seem to create problems in everyday life, it is possible to feel it to the touch but it is practically invisible when the panel brightness is set above 70%.
The zipper is also convincing. Many have wondered about the possibility of mistakenly bending the smartphone outwards. In this sense, the mechanism is designed only to be folded back inside, so from this point of view there seems to be no risk of accidental damage. In short, from an exquisitely constructive point of view, the Galaxy Fold seems to have been constructed with criteria.
The screen on the outside is able to correctly display all the applications, while the software part still appears unripe in the management of the interface when the Galaxy Fold is "opened". It is important to underline however that it is a production unit and not a prototype , so much so as to be based on the One UI 1.2 (the Galaxy S10 has version 1.1 on board).
In short, Galaxy Fold is taking further steps towards commercialization. Considering how Huawei's Mate X seems to be destined to enter the market during the summer, Samsung's is starting to be the first true folding smartphone available globally. We'll see what the welcome from the market will be.
