Samsung Galaxy Fold display faces issues

Xtreme
Before it became commercially available in the market, Samsung Galaxy Fold has faced "disastrous issues".

In February, Samsung announced its first foldable phone, boasting infinity flex display, and a 4.6-inch screen, but can unfold to 7.3-inch, giving users immersive multimedia experience. It sports six cameras: three rear cameras, two on the inside, and one on the front.

However, Samsung might need to fix some issues first before the device hits the market.

The Korean company handed out review units to tech journalists earlier this week, but four issues were already reported.

Dieter Bohn of The Verge reported that the device's display had a mysterious bulge in the middle, resulting in both a vertical and horizontal line of dead pixels along the OLED panel.

Another report came from CNBC's Steve Kovach. He revealed the problem via a Twitter post, showing the left side display of the Samsung Galaxy Fold which flickers constantly, making it unable to use.

Mark Gurman of Bloomberg also said it removed the protective layer, which Samsung dubbed it as a "polymer layer" that should not be removed from the device.

While Gurman thought the polymer layer might have caused the problem, Kovach insisted that they did not touch it but the display still broke. 

YouTuber Marques Brownlee also vented out the same issue on the thread, saying that when he removed the polymer layer, which looks like a screen protector, the entire display went black and stopped operating.

Samsung finally responded to the damage reports of its Galaxy Fold, stressing the company would "thoroughly inspect these units."

Here is Samsung's full statement:

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.

Although this is a bad news, this still provides Samsung the opportunity to enhance the display and fix the issues before it even launches the Samsung Galaxy Fold in the global market.
