Looks like Samsung fans that have restlessly been waiting to get their tech greedy hands on the South Korean handset's makers first foldable phone are in for a treat. Aside from that, the Galaxy Fold has made several appearances online in the form of leaked renders.

Elsewhere, the video shows the Galaxy Fold closes with a healthy snap - something Samsung has talked about during its presentation.

The Samsung Galaxy A20 smartphone is backed by the company's in-house Exynos 7884 processor that clocks at 1.6GHz.

Foldable displays are always going to have a crease - the clue is in the name. It apparently originates from Vietnam, which is one of the key R&D and production locations of Samsung. In this new video, however, we can see how the phone functions in real life, and it wasn't all good news. It seems safe to say that the person handling the phone is promoting their unlocking services. While the Galaxy Fold will be hitting the markets next month, we hope the company addresses the issue before the shipping the devices.

That being said, the most interesting revelation that comes from the latest video is the presence of a crease that divides the Galaxy Fold's display in the middle when unfolded.

If continued use is likely to create a dent in the screen, this will significantly damage a user's overall experience. The handset features a 5.9-inch full HD+ Infinity U Super AMOLED display with 19:9 aspect ratio and 1080x2280 pixel resolution. As if that weren't enough, there's hearsay that the phone isn't reliable as far as long-term durability is concerned. Just when we were drooling over the A20 which is now on sale in Russian Federation, and a set of leaked Galaxy A40 renders, a Dutch online retailer chose to let the cat out of the bag with the listing of the Galaxy A40 for which it is even now accepting pre-orders.
