And some reviewers still had problems, even with the protective screen.
In response, Samsung released a statement saying it would look into the problem.
The company wrote:
A limited number of early Galaxy Fold samples were provided to media for review. We have received a few reports regarding the main display on the samples provided. We will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter.
Separately, a few reviewers reported having removed the top layer of the display causing damage to the screen. The main display on the Galaxy Fold features a top protective layer, which is part of the display structure designed to protect the screen from unintended scratches.
Removing the protective layer or adding adhesives to the main display may cause damage. We will ensure this information is clearly delivered to our customers.
Samsung also said they are still planning on launching the phone on 26 April in the US.
That’s just over a week away, which is a pretty tight deadline if the phone… doesn’t work.
And it doesn’t help that there are a lot of people who are expecting the Galaxy Fold.
