Watch an army of robots try to destroy Samsung Galaxy Fold

Ready to prove the haters wrong, Samsung published a new video today showing off the folding capabilities of its new folding phone, the Galaxy Fold.

Samsung created some small robots that fold the Fold open and closed thousands of times in a day to see how durable its flexible display truly is. The displays still haven’t been fondled by members of the press yet, so this is the closest thing we’ve seen to a durability test on the futuristic phone.

Watch the Fold bend over backwards again and again and again:

Analysts have been concerned that the Fold’s screen will show a crease down the middle as it ages. Samsung claims the screen can outlast about 200,000 folds. That should be good for about five years of use if you open it 100 times a day.

In the video, you can see the display turns on pretty quickly after being unfolded or folded. The specialized hinge is also on display and you can see that there isn’t much of gap between the displays when it’s folded.

The Galaxy Fold starts at an eye-watering $1,980 and is set for release on April 26th.
