One of the criticisms folding phones had to face was the durability and ability to fold without creases on the screen. Both are legitimate concerns. It’s earlier reported that journalists weren’t allowed to spend too much time with any of the folding smartphones launched at this year’s MWC. Many speculated the reason behind this to be the issues related to creases among others.

We can’t speak about Huawei but Samsung seems quite confident in what they’ve achieved so far with its soon to be launched foldable smartphone. The company today has released a video in which it shows off Galaxy Fold’s folding skills. The video basically shows a stress test for the Galaxy Fold and for that Samsung had put its Fold into a specialized stress testing machine. Instead of a human being, Samsung took the help of that machine to bend the smartphone.

The video help providing some sort of assurance that the chances of it getting creases are zero. Also, the smartphone also turns on instantly after it’s unfolded. You can watch the video below.

According to Samsung, its Galaxy Fold can fold and unfold more than 200,000 times without any issue and that as per The Verge translates to roughly five years of usage. The real test, however, will be when Samsung’s candidate will head over to the consumers pocket. The Galaxy Fold will be up for sale from April 26, starting at $1,980.
