Samsung Is All In On The Fold

Know When To Walk Away, Know When To Run

The first attempt to launch the Samsung Fold did not go well, even for those that didn’t remove the protective film covering the Infinity Flex Display as pocket lint and dust was able to penetrate the hinge to wreak havoc on the internals.   Samsung went back to the drawing board to improve the design, first off by making it obvious that the protective film on the display is not to be removed by having it extend underneath the bezel.

They’ve also improved the protection on the hinge as well as several weak areas on the sides which made it possible to physically damage the screen in a short period of time.  They expect to release the foldable phone to a select group of markets in September, though one wonders if those that killed their first run will be included this time.

Drop by Ars Technica for a look at the original as well as renders of the new model.

The top protective layer of the Infinity Flex Display has been extended beyond the bezel, making it apparent that it is an integral part of the display structure and not meant to be removed.
