Samsung has been quite wrong to allow someone to try the Galaxy Fold in real life but, apparently, those rules do not apply to robots, specifically, to Samsung's specialized stress testing machines, The company appeared in a new video that highlights the folding capabilities of the Galaxy Fold.
The video is quite fascinating on its own; there is something almost relaxing to see that all phones open and close in perfect synchronization, but the most important thing is that stress tests are giving us the best look so far. Actually, the fold is seen when it is folded.
And so far, it looks pretty slippery. The screens are quick to turn on, there does not seem to be such a large space when the device is closed, and there also seems to be a growing problem that early reports claimed could be a problem (but since it is an extremely polished video, produced by Samsung , we will have to wait and see for ourselves if that is really the case.
Samsung promises that the Fold will be able to "exceed 200,000 folds and developments" (estimated at approximately five years of use, assuming 100 times a day), although unless you build a folding robot on your own, it is likely that you will not encounter that barrier in the near future.
The Galaxy Fold will be launched next April 26, starting at $ 1,980.
