  Redesigned Samsung Galaxy Fold units have totally new ways of breaking After being redesigned due to durability problems, the Samsung Galaxy Fold is back and breaking in whole new ways.That's according to a reviewer from TechCrunch, who found their Samsung Galaxy Fold screen broke after only a day of use. Notably, it didn't break in the same way displays on the original Fold did, suggesting this is a whole new problem the version two devices have.

We got this official sneak peek of the Fold 2 last month at the Samsung Developers Conference. We still have a lot of questions about the device, starting with the name (we’re calling it the Galaxy Fold 2 for now, until Samsung decides on the official branding it will go with). The early hints suggest the design will be similar to that of the new Motorola Razr and be a bit of a departure from the initial version of the Fold that launched in September.

iFixit tears down Samsung's 'improved' Galaxy Fold

  iFixit tears down Samsung's 'improved' Galaxy Fold iFixit pulled its first Galaxy Fold teardown after Samsung scrapped the phone's April launch to improve its durability. Now that the foldable has finally reached stores, though, it's ready for take two. The DIY repair site has posted a teardown for the revised Galaxy Fold that reveals both the known innards and, crucially, the additional protections for that folding screen. The teardown crew noted that Samsung faced a clear challenge trying to safeguard the screen.

The second annoying thing about the Fold when it comes to design is the side-notch area that houses the And when folded , the phone has a lot more symmetry to it than the Galaxy Fold . There’s no question this Mate X 2 concept looks a lot better than the Galaxy Fold , but can Huawei pull it off?

A cool new concept video of a Galaxy Fold 2 has been published online. Fans also believe the inclusion of an S Pen will be a logical thing to do on a form factor like this . This is definitely how a future Galaxy Fold might look like, but we don ’ t know whether that will be a Galaxy Fold 2 or a Fold 5.

Meanwhile, one Instagram account has gone ahead and released a concept image that tries to visualize what the next version of Samsung’s experimental foldable phone might look like, which you can check out below.

Check out the image below from @samsung.unleashed:

One of the biggest changes on the design front that common sense would dictate in a second-generation edition of the Galaxy Fold next year is it should be more durable than its predecessor. We’ve extensively covered the Galaxy Fold’s shortcomings along these lines, and it should go without saying that if you’re shelling out almost $2,000 for a smartphone, that sucker should be able to last you a long time. Going by the concept image above and the assumptions that likely fueled it, it’s likely we’ll also see Samsung try for narrower bezels and maybe an even less-obtrusive cutout for the front-facing camera.

Samsung has launched its Galaxy Fold Premiere Service in the US, offering all of the foldable phone's buyers dedicated support through video chat (through the Members app) or conventional voice calls. If you're in the right location, you can also get in-person tutorials. Premiere Service also includes a discount on the first replacement for the folding screen, lowering it to $149 whether you visit specified service locations or get an expedited mail-in.

Regardless, there’s been no letup in the number of rumors surrounding Samsung’s attempts here — partly because it seems Samsung is working toward giving us possibly more than one foldable phone in 2020. A clamshell model, as well as a more direct follow-up to the Fold itself, which we’ve been referring to as the Fold 2. As always, we’ll have to wait and see what Samsung’s official intentions are, but the expectation is that solid news along these lines will be coming early next year, so we won’t have to wait long.

Samsung’s next Galaxy Fold will have a hinge you can barely see .
As 2019 draws to a close and Samsung winds down its first year of offering foldable smartphones as a viable commercial product, rumors and leaks are already starting to mount about what the South Korea-based tech giant is planning along these same lines for 2020 and beyond. Meanwhile, as we noted earlier on Tuesday, Samsung may also address one of the biggest obstacles between customers and this year’s Galaxy Fold, besides the unusual form factor: The steep price tag. According to The Korea Herald, the new foldable handset Samsung is prepping will likely cost around $845 in Korea next year. And, beyond that, Samsung may also bring something entirely new to the design next year as well.
