Samsung is confident that the Fold can last you for around 5 years.

This test, which examines whether the Galaxy Fold can outlast 200,000 folds and unfolds (or around five years of use, if used 100 times a day), takes a full week to complete.

With the Galaxy Fold, Samsung has stepped up the game in the smartphone industry. Pushing the Galaxy Fold into the Luxury smartphone segment, the fold breaks the barriers of display technology completely. However, techies and consumers will definitely be worried about the display material and the amount of times it will be unfolded each day, which is a cause of concern.

Samsung is confident that the Fold can last you for around 5 years with an average folding and opening of the device of at least 100 times a day. The display on the Fold is tested repeatedly on their own test platforms to ensure that the device can withstand daily wear and tear, and last the consumer for at least 5 years if not more.   

 

Part smartphone, part tablet, Samsung’s category-defying Galaxy Fold offers users an entirely new kind of mobile experience, featuring fun and innovative ways to multitask, watch videos, play games, and more. Samsung subjected the device to several rounds of extensive tests in its state-of-the-art reliability labs to make sure that the Galaxy Fold is ready to come to market.

“Naturally, given the smartphone’s design, a Folding Test was a pivotal part of the Galaxy Fold’s durability assessment. This test, which examines whether the Galaxy Fold can outlast 200,000 folds and unfolds (or around five years of use, if used 100 times a day), takes a full week to complete. While the extent of the test may seem like overkill to some, Samsung viewed it as vital to ensuring the durability of device’s hinged design and Infinity Flex Display,” claims Samsung.

 

Watch how Samsung ensures that the Galaxy Fold will be up to the task with each and every fold and unfold.
