Improved version of the Samsung Galaxy Fold shows up in hands-on photo
The Samsung Galaxy Fold was a heavily guarded secret over at the company's HQ in South Korea. No public testing of the device was reportedly done before its unveiling, and as a result, after the Fold made its way to media outlets and reviewers, numerous flaws in its design were quickly discovered. This caused Samsung to postpone the actual launch of the Galaxy Fold and rethink parts of its design.

The rumored June launch window for the Galaxy Fold has come and gone, but Samsung is seemingly still hard at work on the futuristic foldable phone, with some 2,000 units of the improved model allegedly in the hands of testers all around the world, according to SamMobile.

One such Galaxy Fold test unit was recently spotted in the wild – in the hands of a person in the New Delhi metro system, to be exact. An eagle-eyed commuter noticed the device and snapped a picture of it. From what can be made out from the photo, the improved Galaxy Fold looks pretty much exactly like what we saw a couple of months ago, though we are sure Samsung has made numerous improvements under the hood, and especially around the hinge, which was notorious for letting dust and debris get inside the device from the back and under the plastic covering of the display.

Since testing of the improved Galaxy Fold is underway, a possible launch window for the foldable phone would be this holiday season. What's more, since this test unit was spotted in India, we are inclined to believe that Samsung may launch the Fold in more markets than previously thought.
