New images of the redesigned Galaxy Fold – which has already won until another release forecast – have just leaked on the web, published by the site GizChina. Here we can see some more small adjustments made by Samsung in the design of its first folding screen smartphone.
Most of the images detail how the South Korean worked the hinge that was previously susceptible to dust, which could compromise the functionality of the notebook.
According to reports, Samsung has added metal layers under the Infinity Flex screen to reinforce the protection.
Galaxy Fold gets new release forecast with slight hinge change
After a long wait, Samsung can finally launch the Galaxy Fold in September. However, despite not having a specified date, we already know that the company should be more cautious and distribute the folding smartphone in a few selected markets.
According to the South Korean giant, several design changes have been made to the device in order to solve all the problems that were previously encountered. The first noticeable point is that now the special protective film has been extended to the entire screen.
In addition, the hinge has also been rethought to prevent dust, sweat and even other debris from entering the body of the device and damaging the folding display. Therefore, the new protection system now covers a larger area in the hinge clearance.
It may seem like a very small change, but Samsung engineers claim it is essential for Galaxy Fold to survive everyday use. Thus, dust and other dirt particles should no longer cause damage to the device.
For now, the company has not yet shown the new engine in some testing unit. As a result, we do not know whether this small change will prevent further problems from harming the use of the folding smartphone.
Anyway, we can not fail to note that it will be interesting to observe the performance of the Galaxy Fold in the market. This is because many consumers who booked the device had to cancel their orders.
