According to a report published yesterday by Bloomberg, Samsung’s redesign of the Galaxy Fold has been completed. This follows a recent interview with Samsung CEO DJ Koh, in which he asked for “a bit more time.” No release date is set, but according to Bloomberg, it may arrive by the upcoming holiday season.
Bloomberg’s sources (“people familiar with the matter”) state that the redesign mostly dealt with ensuring the protective film layered on top of the folding display can’t be easily removed.

With the Galaxy Fold, Samsung introduced a new form factor that uses a hinge to fold the display inward and protect it while the phone is closed. As we’re talking about an almost $2,000 handset here, the manufacturer needs to ensure its product is durable and will last repeated folding by demanding owners. Therefore, it put a folding test in place to measure the device’s durability and published the video on Youtube, so you can enjoy 34 seconds of Galaxy Folds being repeatedly opened and closed.
