Samsung puts Galaxy Fold Into Durability test

As you all know, Samsung introduced its new Galaxy Foldable smartphone with amazing features. Today Samsung has posted a new video of Galaxy Fold in a machine that tests its durability by repeatedly folding and unfolding the display.

Naturally, given the smartphone’s design, a Folding Test was a pivotal part of the Galaxy Fold’s durability assessment. This test, which examines whether the Galaxy Fold can outlast 200,000 folds and unfolds (or around five years of use, if used 100 times a day), takes a full week to complete. While the extent of the test may seem like overkill to some, Samsung viewed it as vital to ensuring the durability of device’s hinged design and Infinity Flex Display.
Samsung is trying to show how tough its new smartphone and how long the screen will hold up over time.

A commonly cited concern with the Galaxy Fold is its plastic polymer display cover which unlike glass will crease over time and is easier to scratch. Corning is working on an ultra-thin bendable glass for foldable smartphones but that's not available yet.
