- The company has updated several aspects of the Galaxy Fold’s design and fixed flaws that led to issues experienced by some reviewers when the phone was originally launched in April.
- The fixes include new covers over gaps that could have allowed dust and debris into the phone’s interior, an updated protective layer that’s not as easy to remove as the original, and several updates to the device’s hinge.

Samsung unveiled its revised Galaxy Fold foldable smartphone in Berlin on Thursday, a do-over launch for a groundbreaking device initially introduced in April but delayed after early review units suffered quality problems.
Business Insider never faced any issues with its own Galaxy Fold review unit, although some reviewers found issues ranging from small bumps appearing under the display to screens malfunctioning after removing a protective layer that wasn’t designed to be removed.
Samsung’s revisions are largely direct fixes to the issues, with some other minor improvements as a bonus.
The Galaxy Fold, which was re-launched Thursday at the IFA consumer electronics conference in Germany, will go on sale in Korea starting Friday, and it’s expected to hit the US on September 27.
