Samsung understandably doesn’t want to have a teardown out there for a device it isn’t ever going to ship, but issuing a takedown request is the worst move its PR department could make as part of damage control.
Samsung handed out review units of its new $2,000 folding smartphone to journalists this week, and it doesn’t seem to be going very well. Multiple reviewers hit social media on Wednesday to say that their Galaxy Fold handsets are suffering from a debilitating display issue after just a few days of use.
After months of teasing, Samsung today unveiled its first foldable smartphone. Aptly-named the Galaxy Fold, the handset will apparently be ready to launch by April 26, with a staggering starting price of $1,980.
