What’s new in Revamped Galaxy Fold

After a huge setback, Samsung’s ambitious Galaxy Fold is back with some minor design changes but these changes do solve the previous durability issues. This new design looks exactly the same as before but there are some subtle changes that make it harder.

So, here’s every way the Galaxy Fold has changed.

Screen Protector is now unremovable

The main issue with Galaxy Fold was its thin plastic screen protector that was not supposed to be removed but many early adopters who didn’t bother to read the warnings, simply thought that it was simply meant to be removed just like any other plastic sheet on a newly purchased smartphone and that made Fold’s screen unusable. But, now this polymer layer extends beneath the bezel which makes it invisible and unremovable

Hinge Caps

The last when we saw Galaxy Fold, the hinge was open and dust was entering through that gap which was affecting the display but now there are a T-shaped small metal caps at hinge ends that protects the phone two ways: first, they prevent dust and dirt from entering the hinges; second, it prevents air from entering and affecting the display

A much sturdier Display

The previous Fold had only one layer of metal beneath the screen caused the screen crease that runs down the phone’s center to look more prominent but now the redesigned Galaxy Fold  has two metal layers beneath the display, the second of which is added to protect the device from damages caused by hard presses and  to reduce the chances display getting a crease.

Reduced gap between Hinge and Body

Apart from all of the above structural changes, Samsung also managed to reduce the gap between the Fold’s hinge and body so it doesn’t feel thick when closed as it was before. There is still a noticeable amount of gap but it can be counted as progress.

Beyond these minor hardware improvements, nothing else is new on Galaxy Fold.

These design changes do make Galaxy Fold a much better then it was earlier but the point it is it even worth spending $2000 on this when Samsung is not even enthusiastic about the Fold anymore.

The Fold is now available in South Korea for 2,398,000 Won and will make its way to Germany, the UK, and Singapore on Sept. 17th while 5G versions will be available in select markets, including Korea. Also, the US release dates are not confirmed yet but Samsung has assured that Fold will be arriving to the US soon.
