After a series of Galaxy Fold devices failed in the hands of reviewers, Samsung preferred to postpone the launch of its new device to investigate and fix the issue that caused the displays to get out of control fell. After an initial analysis, the company concluded that removing the protective layer on the inner screen may cause external substances to come into contact with the panel and malfunction. The manufacturer has recently announced an updated release schedule for the Galaxy Fold, and a few details explaining how Samsung will fix the device's bugs have been released shortly.
Despite warnings not to remove the screen's protective layer, several people used it to get rid of it, causing their screens to fail. However, it is usually not enough to tell someone not to remove a screen protector to see how things could go wrong, especially if the warning is not explicit. Samsung seems to have realized that this layer does not have to be removable anymore, rather than relying on people not pulling it off. The company is reported to be integrating the screen protector into the body, preventing users from removing it. The company may also make alerts clearer and more visible on end-production cell phones so users know they should not be picked up.
The original design hinge could also allow unwanted elements to penetrate the display components. Samsung has reportedly addressed this problem by reducing the hinge area to prevent the ingress of such substances.
Revised prototypes are currently under test with mobile operators in Korea. Based on the results, it should be determined whether these changes are sufficient for the introduction of the repair. We'll keep you updated as soon as we know more about the upcoming Samsung device and its release schedule.
