Samsung Revealed World's First Foldable Phone

Recommended Posts

Xiaomi has also revealed its double fold phone:

Like Huawei, it folds outward.

And you can see it very clearly that the tablet screen is not completely flat (@ 0.03).

There are 2 visible lines on the screen.

Obviously the guy who demo the phone is holding it in a very strategic way to avoid reflection of both lines. :chuckle: 

Experts had commented foldable screen can hardly be folded flat completely.

And also, it faces the same problem as Huawei i.e. easily scratch since it's screen is wrapping around.

It's still a prototype and no release date or cost.

The world first foldable phone was actually Royole Flexpai

As to avoid the big players, they rushed out this product ahead of Samsung during CES 2019 (Samsung only demo on stage in dark) but the comment from the critics were not so good.

Although it costs much "cheaper" $1300 but there's a few issues:

- Cannot be folded & unfold completely flat

- Slow in speed and operating system

- Easily scratch since it folds outward

- Ugliest among all other foldable phones

Do you even read the article?

From Samsung:

A limited number of early Galaxy Fold samples were provided to media for review. We have received a few reports regarding the main display on the samples provided. We will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter.

Separately, a few reviewers reported having removed the top layer of the display causing damage to the screen. The main display on the Galaxy Fold features a top protective layer, which is part of the display structure designed to protect the screen from unintended scratches. Removing the protective layer or adding adhesives to the main display may cause damage. We will ensure this information is clearly delivered to our customers.

That's what happened to the video screens at The Girlie Show in London.

And why do we need folding phones?

It's like a Malibu Stacy doll with a new hat.
