With the Galaxy Fold poised to finally released later this month, Samsung has begun rolling out the innovative model to select reviewers. So far, however, a number of these users and reviewers have reported issues and breaks with the phone after only a day or two of use.
Since these issues were reported, Samsung has released a statement saying that the company “will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter.” The statement goes on to indicate that the problems may come after some users “reported having removed the top layer of the display causing damage to the screen. The main display on the Galaxy Fold features a top protective layer, which is part of the display structure designed to protect the screen from unintended scratches. Removing the protective layer or adding adhesives to the main display may cause damage. We will ensure this information is clearly delivered to our customers.”
Despite these issues, Samsung has confirmed that the $1,980 USD Galaxy Fold is still due to release on April 26.
