Samsung has fixed the Galaxy Fold’s screen issues in latest redesign

Samsung has reportedly solved its Galaxy Fold screen issues, according to internal sources.

Chatting to Bloomberg, the sources explain that the protective film, which seemed like a screen protector rather than an integral element, now wraps around the screen into the outer bezels of the phone.

The original design saw a gap between the hinge, screen and screen protector. Now, in the revised design, the hinge sits flush with the screen. This in turn gives the screen a firmer feel, and will aid in preventing a groove that results from the fold, the sources add.

Samsung still hasn’t announced a date of availability for the foldable phone. Initially, it planned to launch the phone in April, but a series of screen issues found by reviewers forced the company to rework its plans.

According to the Bloomberg report, it’s likely that the Fold will miss the company’s 7 August Unpacked event, which will likely see the bow of another critical smartphone launch, the Galaxy Note 10.
