Robots Fold Samsung Galaxy Fold Phone 200,000 Times

In a durability test to prove the phone's quality, Samsung subjected its Galaxy Fold phone to at least five years worth of folding use.

When Samsung unveiled its Galaxy Fold phone, rumors started to show up about a crease in the middle. To prove them wrong, Samsung unveiled this video of the phone being folded 200,000 times.

"Naturally, given the smartphone’s design, a Folding Test was a pivotal part of the Galaxy Fold’s durability assessment. This test, which examines whether the Galaxy Fold can outlast 200,000 folds and unfolds (or around five years of use, if used 100 times a day), takes a full week to complete. While the extent of the test may seem like overkill to some, Samsung viewed it as vital to ensuring the durability of device’s hinged design and Infinity Flex Display," reads the company's statement.

The video is mesmerizing to watch and it proves just how durable the Galaxy Fold phone is. Rumors of a crease can now be laid to rest.
