Samsung took the world by storm with its latest handsets. Recently, we witnessed the launch of the company’s flagship Galaxy smartphones, along with an intriguing one, the Galaxy Z Flip. The foldable smartphone Android-based was released on February 14.
Unlike the previous Galaxy Fold, the smartphone fold vertically and utilizes a sleek hybrid glass known as “Infinity Flex Display.” After the latest teardown tests, Galaxy Z Flip is reported to have an issue. The clamshell smartphone’s hinge fibers are likely to gather a lot of dust. Well, is only dust, how much such a thing could trouble us? Mentioning concern over the problem, iFixit stated that because of the dirt and debris, the Z Flip might suffer.
Samsung, on the other hand, didn’t release a detailed statement about a possible dust-situation for its device. Developers indicated that the upcoming foldable smartphone isn’t dust-resistant. But could it be this only for the display? Since such an issue caught our attention, we sure want more answers from Samsung.
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip’s Dusty Problem on the Hinge
The last report had also indicated that the debris and dust gathered at the hinge could create some grind, which could look a lot awful. So, imagine spending $1,380 on the device and getting such an issue. The damage would be so annoying. As for other reports, the smartphone encountered a glass folding issue, too.
After some level 2 tests were made, the glass displayed noticeable damage. Samsung released, only as a precaution, a statement to discreetly utilize the foldable screen. Owners will also receive some free one-time screen protectors when they send their device to a Samsung executive.
It seems that the folding system of Samsung’s smartphones causes a lot of trouble so far. It also received criticism because of the uncertain plastic screen, which made Samsung review the devices, the latest being the Galaxy Z Flip folding smartphone.
