This video shows the hideous crease that could appear with Samsung’s folding phone
It looks like folding phones will definitely be a part of our future, but there are still plenty of reasons to be skeptical of the design and especially the early models that release.
When first watching Samsung’s presentation and the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, I wondered about a screen crease, it seemed like it would be impossible to avoid one completely, but never once during the presentation did it look like one was present. Bloomberg reports that a crease could appear after as little as 10,000 folds and that Samsung is even reportedly discussing offering free screen replacements.
Now, we have a video that could show what that crease looks like
There’s not much information regarding the video, but SamMobile states it originated in Vietnam, where Samsung does have a manufacturing facility. It’s not known if this is just an old prototype or a look at the production model, but one thing is apparent – that screen crease.
With a price tag that is inching towards $2,000, the Samsung Galaxy Fold is definitely a proof-of-concept only meant for early adopters, and what will likely be the predecessor to a realistic folding phone, but still, that screen crease is tough to look at.
