In other news, Let's Go Digital [translated] has dug up patent filings by Samsung for a similar double-folding display. Samsung has released a video of their device being stress tested. The video also highlights the phone's bending capabilities as well as durability of Infinity Flex Display.

"Given the smartphone's design, a folding test was a pivotal part of the Galaxy Fold's durability assessment", a Samsung announcement explains. It would've been nice if Samsung actually showed us what the phone looked like after 200,000 folds - it's not clear where in the process the phones in the video are.

LetsGoDigital notes that his appears to be an advanced design model, no doubt an outgrowth of Samsung's already-stated intention to release a new foldable smartphone annually.

Samsung said that it has used a new polymer layer that allows for flexibility and ruggedness at the same time.

The Galaxy Fold will officially launch at the end of April for €2,000 in Europe and for $1,980 in the US.

According to Samsung, if you open and close your Galaxy Fold for 100 times every day for five years, the device will still be alive and (relatively) well. And to make matters worse, the size of that 5 inch "Cover Screen" relative to the actual exterior dimensions of the Galaxy Fold gives the Galaxy Fold massive bezels that create the impression that there's a lot of wasted space. The battery is 4,380mAh and it supports Wireless PowerShare system, which allows the Galaxy Fold to charge itself and a second device simultaneously.
