The Galaxy Fold has foldable screen technology that may soon be used in all sorts of devices. Samsung's Galaxy Fold is the first phone you can buy with a foldable display that allows the device to serve as both a traditional phone and, when unfolded, a tablet. Then, two days into testing, it completely broke, making clear that this is not a product ready for today's phone buyers.
Samsung's Galaxy Fold is a remarkable phone that shows what future foldable devices will eventually be like, allowing you to unfold your phone into a tablet, but this $2,000 phone broke after two days of testing.
NEW YORK/SEOUL (Reuters) - Samsung Electronics Co Ltd said it has received "a few" reports of damage to the displays of samples of its upcoming foldable smartphone, raising the prospect of a less-then-smooth entry for the splashy $1,980 handset. The Galaxy Fold, on sale from April 26 in the United States, resembles a conventional smartphone but opens like a book to reveal a second display the size of a small tablet at 7.3 inches (18.5 cm). The design, matched by Huawei Technologies Co Ltd's Mate X, was hailed as the future in a field that has seen few surprises since Apple Inc's iPhone in 2007.

"We will thoroughly inspect these units in person to determine the cause of the matter," Samsung said in a statement, noting that a limited number of early Galaxy Fold samples were provided to media for review.

AMSTERDAM/SEOUL (Reuters) - ASML Holding NV denied on Wednesday any involvement by its top client Samsung Electronics Co Ltd in an intellectual property theft case between the Dutch chip equipment maker and a competitor. ASML last week disclosed that former employees took company secrets to U.S. software maker Xtal Inc, which is funded by entities in South Korea and China and set up to sell a competing product to an existing ASML customer in South Korea. Speculation of Samsung's involvement was raised in media reports partly due to the South Korean firm's partnership with Xtal, which filed for bankruptcy in December after losing a $223 million judgement to ASML over the matter.
Journalists who received the phones to review before the public launch said the Galaxy Fold screen started flickering and turning black before completely fizzling out.

With the exception of a handful of people in the know, no one expected Apple and Qualcomm to agree to settle all of their global litigation this week, particularly not on Day Two of their latest trial. On the one hand, Apple’s (AAPL) challenge to Qualcomm’s (QCOM) business practices threatened the latter’s model of developing intellectual property through significant R&D investment and then licensing the technology to device makers. On the other, Apple was beginning to collect a string of legal defeats involving patent infringements that threatened its ability to keep selling popular iPhone models in some of its most critical markets.
