  The name of Samsung’s most exciting foldable phone yet will make you flip The Galaxy Fold wasn’t the successful foldable experiment Samsung wanted, as a few design issues affected the phone’s durability last year. The phone was postponed from April to September, but Samsung wasn’t able to iron out all the problems with the handset’s fragility.
