I recently argued that you should forget about Samsung’s Galaxy S10, Galaxy S10 Plus and Galaxy S10e due to significant teething problems and hardware omissions.
Now that advice can be extended to Samsung’s radical (and jaw-droppingly expensive) Galaxy Fold…
Picked up by the ever-vigilant SamMobile, a new hands-on video has exposed a deal-breaking problem with Samsung’s imminent screen-folding smartphone: a permanent crease runs down the middle of the display.
In fact, the crease is so pronounced (the panel is plastic) that it is visually distracting throughout the duration of the hands-on. It is also not helped by a heavily protruding rear camera (something Samsung had almost eliminated from its recent flagships) which makes the phone look slightly bent when used on a flat surface.
Furthermore, there is no reason to doubt the authenticity of this video (below). The phone is fully operational, stock is hitting the supply chain and it is identical to the device Samsung recently unveiled. Needless to say, however, Samsung’s official renders omit the ugly crease. More
