Behind the Scenes of How Samsung Tests the Galaxy Z Fold3 | Flip3 5G

Users around the world are raving about Samsung’s latest revolutionary foldable devices, the Galaxy Z Fold3 | Flip3 5G, particularly on their groundbreaking form factors. But to produce the durable, dependable foldables our users have come to love, we had to design an innovative way of developing and testing the devices. With no time-tested blueprint to follow, we spent years conducting thousands of trials, relying on diverse perspectives and developing a fresh new approach. As a result, we have been able to develop all-new materials like Armor Aluminum, and optimize existing components on the layers of the display panel to maintain the highest durability standards yet.

Our high-tech, innovative tests include environmental chamber, water resistance, S Pen usability, and folding test. Environmental chamber tests ensure that features, such as video playback, and components, like cameras work properly in a variety of climates—from dry to humid, and hot to cold. Water resistance tests establish the high quality of the very first water-resistant foldable smartphone by even testing in different folding positions, including Flex mode. With S Pen drawing tests, we ensure the performance of the digitizer underneath the foldable display including where it folds. And to ensure that the new foldables live up to their namesake, the Galaxy Z series devices undergo rigorous folding test to outlast 200,000 folds—or around five years of use if folded and unfolded 100 times a day. The enhanced folding tests reflect actual user patterns in real-world scenarios such as folding and unfolding using both hands.

Take a look at the video below for a behind-the-scenes look at some of the testing procedures Samsung uses to ensure that the latest Galaxy Z series devices meet the highest standards possible.

혁신적인 기술력이 집약된 갤럭시 Z 시리즈는 전에 없던 폼팩터로 새로운 카테고리를 개척하고 있다. 삼성전자는 사용자들이 언제 어디서나 걱정 없이 사용할 수 있도록 내구성 강화에도 심혈을 기울였다. 현존하는 가장 강한 알루미늄 소재인 ‘아머 알루미늄(Armor Aluminum)’을 적용한 것은 물론, 새로운 접근법을 도입해 엄격한 신뢰성 시험 과정을 거친 것.

건조한 기후, 습한 기후, 더운 기후, 추운 기후 등 실제 사용 환경에 기반한 환경 테스트 챔버에서 앱 사용성과 내구성을 시험하는 테스트도 진행한다. 방수 기능을 지닌 세계 최초 폴더블 스마트폰인 만큼 방수 시험도 빠질 수 없는 부분. 여기에 사용자의 대화면 경험을 풍부하게 해줄 S펜 필기 시험, 실제 사용자가 기기를 여닫는 행동 패턴을 포함한 폴딩 시험 등 여러 종류의 테스트를 진행한다.

아래의 신뢰성 테스트 영상에서 갤럭시 Z 시리즈의 내구성이 뛰어난 이유를 확인해보자.
