Samsung has designed another fascinating piece of technology consisting of a ‘multi-face’ or continuous display screen that folds over two sides of a smartphone. Whereas the unlucky Samsung Galaxy Fold features a screen that physically flexes as the device is opened and closed, the patent for this design describes a fixed screen that wraps around the exterior of a phone.
Ever since Samsung broke the news of launching its upcoming Galaxy Fold smartphone, mobile phone lovers have been in a frenzy. After all, who can blame them? The South Korean giant’s radical, yet innovative approach to smartphone design – the first of its kind – gives users the luxury of a day-to-day smartphone along with the media-rich experience of tablet simply by folding the device.
Something very odd is happening to Samsung’s brand new technology. It’s breaking down! The Galaxy Fold, a new foldable smartphone that opens up to form a small tablet and was set to cost £1,800 in the UK, was sent to reviewers prior to the planned release date of May 3. Some of them began to report that their phones broke after just two days of use.
