The new midrange phone joins other recently announced devices from the fifth generation of Samsung's A-series - including the Galaxy A50, Galaxy A40, and Galaxy A30 - and it offers some standout features.
Some of Samsung's new, nearly NZ$3000 Galaxy Folds are reportedly breaking after just a couple of days.
The adhesive layer referred to by Gurman and Brownlee is meant to protect the OLED screen of the Fold, and Samsung told some reviewers not to remove it (not everyone got the message, though). "I believe this contributed to the problem". In this case, Brownlee proceeded to remove the Galaxy Fold's polymer layer, which at first glance looks like a regular screen protector, but shortly into the process the entire display turned black and stopped working. At this point at least four different devices have failed, which may not seem like a lot until you realize that there are perhaps only a few dozen Galaxy Folds in the hands of people outside of Samsung employees. He thought it was a screen protector and started peeling the rest of it off only to realize that it was actually an integral part of the display. So you get a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED Infinity-U display of FHD+ resolution, Exynos 7904 SoC, a 5,000mAh battery with 15W fast charging support, and a fingerprint reader on the back. After removing the layer of the display, first the left half of the display died, then the display completely died.
"There's a layer that appears to be a screen protector on the Galaxy Fold's display", Brownleee tweeted". He is optimistic of Samsung not only achieving its target sales figures but also exceeding it as the Galaxy A series will be available on online and offline channels.

The $1,980 phone has two screens: a 4.6-inch one on the exterior that looks like a typical smartphone screen, and a second, folding screen on the interior that opens up to create a 7.3-inch display.
Samsung's messaging to early reviewers explicitly reminded us that the top layer of the screen was not removable and that it would compromise the integrity of the display.
