Watch Samsung's Galaxy Fold fall woefully short of 200,000 folds

  Watch Samsung's Galaxy Fold fall woefully short of 200,000 folds After a lot of hype and some notable delays, Samsung's Galaxy Fold is now available in the US. Even after upgrades to make the phone more durable, Samsung has cautioned users to be extra careful. So this week, CNET decided to put the phone to the test. Using a machine built by SquareTrade, CNET repeatedly opened and closed the Galaxy Fold for hours on end. It held up for 119,380 folds (about 14 hours) before the screen and hinge were damaged. That's less than the estimated 200,000 times a person would open and close the Fold over a five-year period.

Samsung will take the wraps off the Galaxy S 10 on Wednesday during an Unpacked press conference in San Francisco, and the company is also expected to tell us more about the " Galaxy F" foldable handset. A leak earlier this week said the phone' s official name is Galaxy Fold , and it suggested.

Samsung has had a tough year when it comes to marketing and selling foldable phones. That’s not because the technology isn’t interesting to consumers, but because the first phone Samsung ever made turned out to be a lot easier to damage than we’d have liked. The Galaxy Fold required several fixes that would prevent screen damage, and Samsung had to delay the phone’s launch by five months. Even so, the handset is extremely fragile, and you do have to pay extra attention when dealing with the screen. These durability issues are all the more annoying considering the Galaxy Fold’s entry price. At $2,000, the Galaxy Fold 2 costs twice as much as the iPhone 11 Pro, one of the best phones you can buy this year. This brings us to a brand new report that says one of Samsung’s two foldable devices next year will sell for less than $1,000, which should help Samsung move more product.

Samsung is working on a vertical foldable handset, similar to Motorola’s new Razr handset. That’s something that Samsung has already teased. And it’s the vertical foldable that might cost around $845 in Korea next year, The Korea Herald reports.

How will Samsung reduce the entry cost for its foldable handsets by more than 50%? That’s something the report doesn’t say. Motorola’s $1,500 Razr is the cheapest foldable right now, not counting the Pablo Escobar phone, of course, because it packs mid-range specs compared to the Galaxy Fold or Huawei Mate X. 
With that in mind, it seems unlikely for the vertical Galaxy Fold to pack Galaxy S11-grade hardware. Hopefully, the phone’s build quality will be much better than the Galaxy Fold’s.

While the launch of the Galaxy Fold may not have gone as smoothly as Samsung had hoped, the phone maker is in it for the long haul when it comes to foldable phones.
