Samsung Galaxy Fold

Samsung has apparently fixed the (embarrassing) screen issues the test version of the Samsung Galaxy Fold smartphone had, meaning consumers may be able to purchase the device before Christmas arrives

According to Bloomberg, the tech giant is now in the final stages of producing a version of the Samsung Galaxy Fold, but no new official release date has been announced. There is an 'unpack' event taking place in August but this will more likely we about a new Galaxy Note10 smartphone and not the folding device. 

The main issue Samsung has fixed is the ability to peel off a protective film from the screen which some reviewers reported was quite easy to do.

A source also told Bloomberg that the new film should also reduce the chances of a crease appearing in the middle of the screen.
