One Weibo user has managed to get their hands on a Samsung Galaxy Fold pre-production unit and disassembled it to see what’s really inside this folding smartphone. As you might’ve guessed, the inside is quite complex to say the least, with many parts crammed together in a manner that would make it very difficult to repair / replace, or at least by yourself. The hinge features three-point reinforcement and two ribbon cables that connect the phone’s two batteries as well as sending power to the secondary 4.6-inch display.

“Both of the cables stretching through the hinge have ‘L’ and ‘R’ printed on them. That might help explain the display’s ‘jelly scrolling’ effect that we spotted in our review, if it turns out that the left and right halves of the display are sent different video signals. As seen in the GIF above, text and images appear to be a bit behind on the left side of the foldable display compared to the right side,” reports The Verge.
