Samsung Galaxy Fold's Flexible Screen Might Be Flawed

Posted March 21, 2019

It's only been a few days since Samsung launched its new Galaxy S10 and according to a new report the smartphone has already encountered a bug that dramatically drains the phone's battery.

Samsung will launch the Galaxy Fold on April 26th in limited quantities for $1,980. This might be the reason, the company has never given anyone a chance to touch the device.

Granted, there is a light ring animation that around the in-display front camera area when you do face recognition and such, but it doesn't serve a notification goal just yet. For the surprise of many an S10 buyer, however, that also means that the LED light that used to bring us visual notifications about charging status or missed calls and messages in the Galaxy S9, is also gone. On the other hand, this could be wishful thinking and the problem might affect every Galaxy Fold unit planned for release.

Samsung Galaxy A20 sports a 6.4-inch HD+ Super AMOLED display with a resolution of 1560×720 pixels. It also shows how the keyboard works on the 7.3-inch display, which takes up a sizeable chunk of the screen real estate, similar to Samsung tablets.

The new S-series smartphones are powered by Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 855 chipset while the worldwide version will be powered by Exynos 9820 chipset.

Both the smartphones come with stereo speakers, a USB Type-C port, IP68 water-resistance, and a dedicated Bixby button.

Inside the device is a 3,100mAh battery, while it will boot Android Pie with OneUI out of the box.

The phone doesn't have an in-display fingerprint reader but has a traditional fingerprint sensor on the right side of the device.

Housed in the notch is a 25 MP selfie camera, while the back of the A40 plays host to a 16 MP + 5 MP dual camera setup, the latter being an ultra-wide angle lens.
