Last year, Samsung saw its smartphone shipments decline, primarily because of the Galaxy S9 which was blamed by many for the downward trajectory of the company' mobile division. Ahead of its sale, Samsung has released a video showing off the tests carried out on the Galaxy Fold to ascertain durability. The folding mechanism uses a mechanical hinge design which allows the device to open smoothly and naturally as if you're opening a book. This is said to be equivalent to about 5 years of usage based on the estimated use of 100 times per day.

In the lack of up-close-and-personal hands-on time with the Galaxy Fold, the internet relies on the scarce information that is out there. So that longevity is a significant factor. The video shows Samsung conducting a folding test, and the company claims that the phone is capable of withstanding 200,000 folds. The company shared a short video of the test, though there's not much to it other than looking like the smartphone version of a Zumba class.

Samsung states that though this amount of folding may seem excessive, they view it as "vital to ensuring the durability of device's hinged design and Infinity Flex Display".

The Galaxy Fold will officially launch at the end of April for €2,000 in Europe and for $1,980 in the US. The owner suggests that the display crease is visible and appears when unfolded. This leaves you with a almost edgeless phone display that's a bit wider.
