New Samsung Galaxy Fold teardown reveals a much-improved device

Samsung Galaxy A20s with triple-cameras, Snapdragon 450 announced in India

You can buy the Rs 1,64,999 foldable phone online via the company's official e-store.

Tape now covers the spine hinge of the Galaxy Fold, which will hopefully stop debris from damaging the display. Galaxy A20s has been developed keeping in mind the smartphone needs of the Gen Z consumer for a great display, superior triple camera and captivating design with a mirror-like finish.

The launch of the Galaxy Fold makes it the third flagship Samsung phone to arrive this year.

It's round 2 for Samsung's ambitious Galaxy Fold smartphone.

Patrick Mahomes tweaks ankle in banged-up Chiefs' loss to Colts
Mahomes turned his ankle in the first half and aggravated the injury while playing on it in the second half. Not only did he struggle in pass coverage, he was flagged four times for 68 yards.

Originally, there were only rigid metal plates providing support for the Fold's soft, flexible OLED panel from behind, and because a metal plate doesn't readily bend, the plates stopped before the fold in the phone screen, leaving it unprotected. Samsung has explained its changes, which include new end-caps on the open portions of the hinge, extending the top layer of the OLED to under the bezels so that it doesn't become appealing for pealing, and adding a new reinforcement layer to the display too.

These two elements were the main culprits behind the 5-month delay in the phone's release, as the first preview units that Samsung sent our back in the spring were not up to snuff for everyday wear and curious influencers that tried to pry the display off.

Unfortunately, iFixit claims that there are still spots which might be problematic, including gaps next to the phone's spine where dust and debris could get in (see below). A teardown of the device made those flaws even more apparent. At first, users were mistaking it for a standard screen protector and removing it. The new Galaxy Fold 5G doesn't have these highlights yet, and it is required to be discharged soon.
