Samsung Galaxy Fold, one of the most controversial tech developments of 2019, has not yet received its formal release date. But ahead of the debut, the Samsung foldable phone has reportedly been spotted in testing publicly. The public testing of the Galaxy Fold reportedly took place in India — precisely, in a Delhi Metro train. This was perhaps the first open appearance of the Galaxy Fold that was unveiled at MWC 2019 back in February but hasn’t yet debuted in the market due to its display fiasco.
A man riding the metro in New Delhi was spotted using a Samsung Galaxy Fold unit, reports SamMobile. The phone, as per the image shared online, appears in its folded state.
Earlier, Samsung had given the Galaxy Fold to its employees and global reviewers. But the South Korean company is this time taking the public testing way with an aim to fix the foldable smartphone ahead of the formal launch.
In a recent media interview, Samsung’s IT and Mobile Communications Division President and CEO DJ Koh revealed that more than 2,000 Galaxy Fold units are being mass tested “in all aspects” to fix the issue.
“I do admit I missed something on the foldable phone, but we are in the process of recovery,” said Koh in the interview.
