Samsung Galaxy Fold display issues emerge just 48 hours after first outing

On Monday, Samsung officially let the press handle the Galaxy Fold after it was shown off in a tightly controlled demo in February. Just two days later, the first review units are encountering multiple issues all focused on the foldable display.

Over the past hour, journalists from The Verge, Bloomberg, and CNBC all shared issues they encountered with the Galaxy Fold review units they received on Monday.

According to Dieter Bohn, a small “bulge” appeared on the crease of the Galaxy Fold that’s “enough to slightly distort the screen.” Besides being able to feel the lump, there are “telltale lines of a broken OLED” after just normal usage by The Verge.

There’s something pressing up against the screen at the hinge, right there in the crease. My best guess is that it’s a piece of debris, something harder than lint for sure. It’s possible that it’s something else, though, like the hinge itself on a defective unit pressing up on the screen.
