It took awhile, but Samsung has completed the redesign of its Galaxy Fold. After delaying its launch for a few months now, Bloomberg reports that the Korean tech giant is in the final stages of producing a commercial version of the foldable phone.
So what exactly is different now, compared to the initial design of the Samsung Galaxy Fold? For starters, the protective film is impossible to peel of by hand. It wraps around the entire display and flow into the outer bezels.
You may remember that some of the early Galaxy Fold review units had issues even when the protective film wasn’t peeled off. This involved the hinge, and according to Bloomberg’s sources, it has also been redesigned. Now it’s flush with the display, and it increases the tension on the protective film, making it feel more like something that shouldn’t be peeled off.
Bloomberg also reports that Samsung has begun shipping components for the Galaxy Fold for assembly. That said, sources say that the company has yet to decide on a launch date. This makes it unlikely that it will be launched this month, as previously rumoured.
