Xiaomi puts a different spin on folding phones

Here's a 34-second video of Samsung folding the Galaxy Fold over and over again

Samsung's foldable smartphone Galaxy Fold will be released in the USA on April 26 at a price of $1,980 (over one lakh rupees approximately). If the numbers are true, the Galaxy Fold should be able to withstand 100 folds and unfolds in a day for around five years. Samsung claims that the Galaxy Fold holds up well for 200,000 folds. Samsung says the Galaxy Fold can be folded and unfolded at least 200,000 times. Samsung subjected the device to several rounds of extensive tests in its state-of-the-art reliability labs to make sure that the Galaxy Fold is ready to come to market. On Wednesday, the company published a video of the test in action.

Samsung's 30-second official video shows the phone being folded and folded by sophisticated machines, and there's no crease is in sight on the Infinity Flex Display.

Last year, Samsung saw its smartphone shipments decline, primarily because of the Galaxy S9 which was blamed by many for the downward trajectory of the company' mobile division.

So it looks like early Galaxy Fold adopters needn't worry about durability.

Starting with the folding test, the Galaxy Fold new video shows Samsung doing a rigorous folding test on the phone to assess its durability. Another interesting thing is that the folded screens at the back are still lit but only the front display is seen functional. In the folded position, the support falls nicely between the two display parts.
