A report by Bloomberg claims that Samsung has finally completed the redesign of its foldable smartphone
In April, Samsung ’s worst nightmare came true, after several journalists discovered screen issues in its Galaxy Fold smartphone – just weeks before it was due to launch.
Reporters from media outlets including The Verge, CNBC and Bloomberg encountered problems during hands-on sessions with the device, including broken and bulging screens.
Now, a report by Bloomberg claims that Samsung has finally completed the redesign of its foldable smartphone.
According to the report, Samsung has ‘stretched the protective film to wrap around the entire screen and flow into the outer bezels so it would be impossible to peel off by hand’.
The tech giant is also reported to have re-engineered the phone’s hinge to help stretch the film further.
While the report claims that the issue has been resolved, it remains unclear when Samsung will begin shipping the new smartphone.
Samsung is hosting an ‘Unpacked’ event on August 7 where it’s expected to launch its Note 10 smartphone, but the report suggests that it’s unlikely the updated Fold will also be revealed on this date.
It added: “The company is unlikely to unveil its re-upholstered Galaxy Fold during an Aug. 7 ‘Unpack”’event in New York for the new flagship Note 10 phone.”
