Update, April 1, 2019 (12:30pm ET): We're still weeks away from the Samsung Galaxy Fold's launch, but that hasn't stopped XDA-Developers (via Android Police) from finding some of the unreleased phone's wallpapers.
The South Korean giant itself says the polymer layer shouldn't be removed, but from the look of things reviewers didn't see the warning on the Galaxy Fold's plastic wrap. YouTuber Marques Brownlee (MKBHD) encountered a similar issue after he removed the film, thinking it was a screen protector.
Dieter Bohn, executive editor of The Verge, said that a "small bulge" appeared on the crease of the phone screen, which appeared to be something pressing from underneath the screen. Samsung told us that the hinge is supposed to withstand 200,000 open and shuts, so this shouldn't be a part that breaks down after just a day or so of use. Here's an image from Brownlee showing how that layer peeled off, and shortly thereafter killed the screen.
Durant, Beverley tossed; Curry, Warriors take Game 1
The two were going after each other all game but the stage was set by a hard fourth-quarter foul from Beverly on a Durant drive. On the court, it was Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell that made the difference, combining for 51 of the Clippers' 104.
The issues raise questions about whether or not the Galaxy Fold can withstand normal use.
The era of folding smartphones is off to a rocky start.
Further, the Galaxy A70 will go on sale in the country starting May 1 through all retail stores, Samsung online shop, Samsung Opera House, and Flipkart. On Twitter, Kovach said he did "nothing" to the phone: "just unfolded it!"
Samsung did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Speculation about problems with the Galaxy Fold's design first arose last month. The Samsung Galaxy Fold was given to a number of people over the past week, and it would seem that they're all breaking at once.
Samsung hasn't yet issued an official statement regarding these problems.
