  • Breaking Galaxy Fold review unit phones

Four Samsung Galaxy Fold review units in the hands of major USA tech journalists all experienced device-breaking display failures today. Several prominent reviewers have reported pretty major issues with their Galaxy Fold units.

Dieter Bohn from The Verge is having a separate issue with his Galaxy Fold.

PSA: There's a layer that appears to be a screen protector on the Galaxy Fold's display.

Samsung made big news for itself when it announced the Galaxy Fold back in November and then officially unveiled the hybrid handset, with its folding internal display, in February.

The state of the art device is a 4.6 inch-smartphone that opens up into a 7.3-inch tablet, that will be available on AT&T and T-Mobile starting April 26 for a cost of $1,980.

Meanwhile, Bloomberg's Mark Gurman said his display is busted, though he noted he took off a "protective layer/film" Samsung says shouldn't be removed.

The problems outlets like Bloomberg, The Verge and CNBC are experiencing with their Galaxy Fold units are either cracking/breaking of the screen, or flickering, Reuters reports.

Sixers ride 51-point 3rd quarter to rout of Nets
Philadelphia fans have embraced Ben Simmons with the city's trademark brotherly love, instead of the boos he received in Game 1. The 76ers have not given a ton of information regarding Embiid's injury, and he is listed as questionable for Game 2.

Videos have emerged of the malfunctioning phone showing one half of the glaringly obvious creased screen flashing and blacking out, providing an unwanted disco-light effect. "I removed it, not knowing you're not supposed to (consumers won't know either)". At the same time, it reminds us that the protective layer isnt meant to be removed nor is it meant to support another adhesive layer on top (no third party screen protectors). Who is going to spend $2000 on something that is now being reported on as DOA, in that the screen has a chance of breaking on day one. It's NOT a screen protector.

PSA: There's a layer that appears to be a screen protector on the Galaxy Fold's display.

The long-anticipated folding phone goes on sale April 26 in the US for $1,980, making it one of the most expensive phones anywhere - particularly if it isn't as durable as promised.

Right now we're at the very edge of viability for folding smartphones, and the Galaxy Fold is the first device from a serious manufacturer that is reaching the hands of the masses.

Samsung has now issued an official statement addressing the reports. "We will ensure this information is clearly delivered to our customers", they continued.

"Unveiling a product ahead of rivals is an important milestone", Wood told CNN Business ahead of the launch event.
