Despite warnings within the box as you open up the Galaxy Fold that asked you not to take off the screen protector, some reviewers who had the device did exactly that and damaged their handset in the process.
The report added that while blockchain apps on the Klaytn network are now available for non-Samsung phones via Google's Android system, only the Klaytn edition will support full-scale transactions on the Klaytn network.

The Galaxy Fold has a 7.3-inch display that becomes a 4.6-inch screen when folded and is created to enhance multitasking experiences. When opened, it reveals a 7.3-inch display with an offset notch and a resolution of 1536 x 2152. And it still doesn't have a headphone jack.

Samsung relaunched its Galaxy Fold foldable smartphone at the IFA event in Berlin, Germany on Thursday. It will go on sale in Britain, France and Germany in less than two weeks, with a US release also planned.
