Bendable smartphones have appeared in mass production relatively recently, and many users wonder about the reliability of their design. Soon after the presentation of the flagship Samsung Galaxy Fold, the South Korean vendor decided to demonstrate the "survivability" of the flexible display of the new item.
The results of the test smartphone company presented in the format of a video. For testing, special equipment was used, cyclically folding and opening the smartphone. The whole process is shown from different angles, which allows you to consider in detail the design features of the device. The display is activated before it is fully opened, and its surface on the fold line remains flat. In smartphone mode, the gap between the halves of the body is almost invisible.
According to the manufacturer, the duration of the "life" of the flexible screen is not less than 200 000 cycles — in other words, about five years with a hundred bends of the gadget per day. Start of sales of the flagship device based on Snapdragon 855 processor is expected in the second quarter of 2019 at a price of $1980.
