Samsung Swears That It Has Fixed the Galaxy Fold

Ina Fried, Axios:

The company said it made several changes, including

  • Extending the top protective layer of the phone’s inner displays so users know that it is not a removable screen protector.

  • “Additional reinforcements” to better protect the device from external particles.

  • The top and bottom of the hinge have been straightened and additional layers placed underneath the display.

So a refined prototype is what they’re shipping? Got it.

I would be shocked if in, I presume, several months of testing before its announcement, not a single Samsung Galaxy Fold unit exhibited any of the myriad problems reviewers found within days. Why not sort that stuff out before having such an embarrassing launch?
