Is the crease visible? How many times can you fold it before the hinge gives up?
Samsung's Dual Folding Smartphone design is quite similar to Xiaomi's foldable smartphone that the company has already teased. It would've been nice if Samsung actually showed us what the phone looked like after 200,000 folds - it's not clear where in the process the phones in the video are.
Mick Schumacher to test for Ferrari in his first taste of F1
Mick Schumacher will move closer toward emulating his father when he drives a Ferrari Formula One auto in an official test next week.
That said, this is a polished Samsung marketing video. The battery is 4,380mAh and it supports Wireless PowerShare system, which allows the Galaxy Fold to charge itself and a second device simultaneously. Perhaps that's why Samsung released a video proving that their folding phone can outlast hundreds of thousands of folds - and unfolds. It says that the folding durability test is a key part of these folding device assessments.
The company says its test is meant to ensure the device can survive around five years of use, if used 100 times a day - the test takes a week to complete. Artem hit this issue with his device, tried to reach Samsung's Premium Care line, was forwarded to tech support, then back to Premium Care, and all to no avail.
I remember when the Samsung Galaxy Nexus launched for Verizon, the variant physically had different dimensions since the GSM variant was thinner. Namely, a smartphone (or a tablet) with a square form factor, no bezels at all, which double-folds on the left and right to extend the screen.
