Hands-on footage with Samsung Galaxy Fold

First concerns of creasing

During the MWC, Samsung has officially unveiled the Galaxy Fold for the first time. Although everyone was very curious about this new foldable smartphone, Samsung kept everything behind a glass display and into the hands of staff. As per usual, a user has gotten their hands on a device over a month in advance showcasing a small crease.

Tâm Nguy?n Minh from phoneoftime uploaded a video of the Galaxy Fold F900U on his YouTube channel. Although the purpose of the video is to show the device being unlocked from AT&T, it's pretty easy to see a small crease placed in the inner tablet display.

According to Samsung, the Galaxy Fold is supposed to be able to withstand 200'000 folds before seeing any visible damage. However according to a report from Bloomberg, users might have first issues already after 10'000 folds. This number is pretty scary and we hope that the true will be between these values.

It's also possible that the model shown in the video is an early model or just a prototype. The Samsung Galaxy Fold will officially land on US shelves on April 26th.
