Uh-oh. It seems Samsung is paying the price for being the trailblazer of foldable devices. The South Korean brand has delayed the global launches of its Galaxy Fold after early reviewers reported that the screens seem to crack far too easily.
The $1,980 (approximately AED 7,300) device that acts as a phone and a fold out tablet, has a litany of problems attached to it…
- Debris getting stuck in the hinge
- Screens cracking with very little pressure
- Protective layer coming away and ruining the display
As reputed tech site Engadget says in its review, “it’s a lot of money for a prototype”. Ouch.
