SEOUL, Mar. 29 (Korea Bizwire) — Samsung Electronics Co. released a video of durability tests on Thursday ahead of the release of its first foldable smartphone, dubbed the Galaxy Fold.
To use a foldable smartphone over a long period of time, there should be no distortion in the display, as there are no scratches or marks left even after folding and opening it several times.
According to the South Korean tech giant, the Galaxy Fold underwent a week-long process to check the durability of its hinge design and foldable displays in its “reliability lab.”
The video demonstrated folding motions based on the assumption that users would fold the phone 100 times a day over a five-year period, 182,500 times in total. In the video, the machine folded the new phone thousands of times without any damage.
Samsung is expected to release the Galaxy Fold in Europe on May 3, following a U.S. launch on April 26. In South Korea, the company is planning to release the world’s first 5G version in mid-May.
