On the occasion of the official re-launch of the mega-luxury folding device, a required test was performed to verify its strength in accordance with the promises - and the unflattering results add more headaches for Samsung
Even after making some improvements over several months, the Galaxy Fold device seems to be סמסונג Which is priced at nearly 2,000 in stores is not really due to compete for the throne.
