Many of you have probably figured this out by now, but the Galaxy Fold is a delicate device.

That delay didn't come before iFixit managed to get its hands on the device, and its teardown today shows us just how fragile the Galaxy Fold actually is.

AT&T Galaxy Fold retail launch rescheduled to June

It should have been Samsung's glorious achievement, being the first to make the foldable dreams real. But whether it was due to hubris, haste, or truly inescapable limitations, the Galaxy Fold has turned out to be quite a nightmare for the manufacturer. It hasn't given up though, apparently, and has just delayed the inevitable. The Galaxy Fold is still coming to the brave souls who pre-ordered the $2,000 prototype but they'll have to wait more than a month to get it.

Vanity and geek-blinkers caused Samsung Galaxy Fold debacle: report

Samsung rushed the Galaxy Fold to market in an attempt to prove critics wrong and demonstrate it was an innovator not a follower, insiders claim, hurtling into another embarrassing disaster in the process. The South Korean firm was forced to delay the release of its flagship foldable smartphone, which was meant to arrive with preorder buyers this week, after reviewers discovered it was ominously easy to damage the near-$2,000 device.

Galaxy S9, S10, and Galaxy Tab S5e now have Linux on DeX

Samsung's latest flagships are so powerful you could almost use them as a portable PC. Actually, you already can if you don't mind running Android in Samsung's special DeX mode. But if you really wanted desktop applications, you're mostly out of luck. Not unless you're comfortable using Linux via Samsung's still beta Linux on DeX. Fortunately, the company is now expanding support of that platform to its latest flagship smartphones and, surprisingly, its mid-range tablet as well.

Galaxy View 2 to come with a more usable stand

Remember the Samsung Galaxy View? You'd be forgiven if you had forgotten or even never heard of this oversized tablet that isn't a tablet. It predated smart displays by a few years and seemed to offer little in terms of practical use. That, however, doesn't seem to have discouraged Samsung and even AT&T from making a second one. Fortunately, it seems that the Galaxy View 2 will correct some of its predecessor's missteps.

Galaxy Fold events, training put on hold amidst display issues

Given how many years it has been working on a foldable phone, you can't really say that Samsung was in a rush to get something out. In fact, you could almost wonder how it still managed to botch it up so terribly after all that time. Needless to say, it is feeling the burn of the Galaxy Fold screen fallout and now it is indefinitely putting some of its planned activities on hold while it tries to tackle its latest mess.

Break’s over: Who’s still up for the Galaxy Fold?

Break’s over: Who’s still up for the Galaxy Fold?

Samsung has had better days. After exploding phones, faulty foldable screens were the last thing it could want. From its PR to R&D departments, things must be pretty intense now at Samsung. It genuinely seems like they have a manufacturing crisis on their hands, with multiple tech reviewers reporting similar cases of damaged screens just within this week. The trend of faulty screens seems to centre on users removing the plastic film over the screen, mistaking it as a pre-installed screen protector.
