Samsung has pressured website iFixit to remove its Galaxy Fold teardown, adding to the already embarassing mess for the Korean company.
After the phone was delayed due to durability problems discovered by early reviewers, iFixit used the teardown to point out several flaws in the design of the Galaxy Fold.
"We were provided our Galaxy Fold unit by a trusted partner. Samsung has requested, through that partner, that iFixit remove its teardown. We are under no obligation to remove our analysis, legal or otherwise. But out of respect for this partner, whom we consider an ally in making devices more repairable, we are choosing to withdraw our story until we can purchase a Galaxy Fold at retail," iFixit.com said.
