First Galaxy Fold teardown reveals masterpiece of Samsung design
The Samsung Galaxy Fold was initially greeted with reactions ranging from enthusiasm to fascination by reviewers. However, this was soon tempered by various different reports that review units of this ground-breaking phone were prone to failure. The OEM replaced the damaged Folds with speed, but the damage to the form-factor's reputation may be irreparable.
Those who have actually purchased this new kind of mobile device may be more than slightly anxious as a result, especially as the Galaxy Fold costs US$1980 or its regional equivalent. These individuals may be less bothered by the apparent new issues - or at least bothered within reason - if they knew how the phone was designed.
A Weibo user claims to have torn their Galaxy Fold down, and has the resulting images to prove it. These photos show the device's dual battery, which is divided between the two halves of the phone. Speaking of division, the user has also demonstrated how the 'internal' screen's cables and connectors traverse the Galaxy Fold's hinge.
The Weibo poster admitted to breaking the phone's front-most screen; however, they also claimed that the main, folding screen was easy to remove. It should also be easy to replace. On the other hand, the user also suggested that advanced skill may be required to take apart a phone such as the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
