A recent video leaked onto YouTube showed off a Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone with a rather worrying visible crease running down the center of the display. However, a communications manager for Samsung has offered reassurance that buyers of the Galaxy Fold will not encounter the issue faced by the device in the controversial clip.

Such was the egregious nature of the display crease shown in a video uploaded to YouTube recently that it could have easily had an impact on the Fold’s early sales, with potential customers being put off by the less than perfect screen. However, it seems Galaxy Fold buyers will have nothing to worry about after all.

Cella Sin, who is the communications manager for Samsung Netherlands, has been in touch with Foldable News in regard to the Galaxy Fold that appeared in the PR-challenging video. Apparently, the smartphone in the clip was likely either a prototype or even a “rejected production device” and that retail models of the Galaxy Fold will have crease-free displays.

Clearly, Samsung will have to deliver on this commitment now. Galaxy Fold users will want a 200,000-fold guarantee of no visible creases. It will be interesting to see how much difference there is between the production model in the video and the final retail device. If Samsung really has solved the crease issue then it looks like the Galaxy Fold will hit the market unblemished.
