The Fold Unfolds Again

leave a comment »

Psych!

Samsung’s Galaxy Fold is unfolding once again.

According to a report from The Verge, Samsung says it has made improvements to protect the Fold’s screen and will release it in September (after having first delayed its April launch).

That sounds like a lot to unfold in just a few short months.

What’s new?

The top protective layer of the Infinity Flex Display has been extended beyond the bezel, making it apparent that it is an integral part of the display structure and not meant to be removed.

Galaxy Fold features additional reinforcements to better protect the device from external particles while maintaining its signature foldable experience.

The top and bottom of the hinge area have been strengthened with newly added protection caps. Additional metal layers underneath the Infinity Flex Display have been included to reinforce the protection of the display. The space between the hinge and body of Galaxy Fold has been reduced.

We’ll see how the emerging Fold unfolds.

Meanwhile, Facebook earnings came out for Q2, reporting $16.9B, up 28 percent YOY, and average DAus up 8 percent YOY (to 1.59B). 

So if you thought everyone (including all your teens and tweens) were leaving Facebook, think again.

Some venture deals: Cashierless retail store solution provider Standard Cognition has raised a $35 Series B by EQT ventures, and Toyota has invested $600M in Didi Chuxing (China’s Uber equivalent).
