There's a New Video of Xiaomi's Foldable Phone

Unveiled at the Unpacked event in February, Samsung Galaxy Fold is all set to hit the shelves in April. But one of the challenges they'll have, aside from the high prices, is convincing potential buyers that the folding mechanism will last and that the display will still look good after years of action. You may have seen the futuristic-looking Samsung's Galaxy Fold, a device with a display that folds like a book.

Before debuting the flexible handset, the Fold underwent factory fold testing that completely opened and closed the device 200,000 times throughout the course of a week.

The company says its test is meant to ensure the device can survive around five years of use, if used 100 times a day - the test takes a week to complete. So that longevity is a significant factor.


The renders of the Samsung Dual Folding Smartphone, created by LetsGoDigital, shows that there are no screen edges and it has a full-screen display.

Starting with the folding test, the Galaxy Fold new video shows Samsung doing a rigorous folding test on the phone to assess its durability.

Pre-registration for the Galaxy Fold launched earlier this week. However, techies and consumers will definitely be anxious about the display material and the amount of times it will be unfolded each day, which is a cause of concern. The video also highlights the phone's bending capabilities as well as durability of Infinity Flex Display. We've even seen evidence to suggest the display forms a huge crease down the middle when folded, prompting more questions. This leaves you with a almost edgeless phone display that's a bit wider.
