The smartphone giant, Samsung has been facing severe backlash, and things do not seem to favor the maker of the legendary smartphone, Samsung Galaxy 2. By the looks of it, the company is having a hard time since it revealed the much-awaited Galaxy Fold. The Samsung Galaxy Fold was the first device of its kind, well, other than Huawei Mate X. And the topsy-turvy scenario doesn’t seem to get healthy. Instead, things get weird and weirder like Alice’s first visit to Wonderland. At least there was a little silver lining in Lewis Caroll’s story.

iFixit decided to tear down the Samsung Galaxy Fold, and this is where things got a little sideline for the company. And the next thing what happened was that South Korean smartphone maker indirectly asked the community that helps people in repairing things, iFixit, to remove the teardown video of Galaxy Fold. According to iFixit, a trusted partner provided a Samsung Galaxy Fold unit. And later all through the same partner, Samsung asked iFixit to remove the teardown from the internet.

iFixit mentioned that they aren’t obligated to remove their analysis in legalized or any other way. And the reason as to why iFixit decided to remove the video was due to the respect that the community has for the partner. iFixit also mentioned that the community considers the partner as an ally to repair the devices. Additionally, iFixit also said that they are going to keep the video away from the internet until they can get their hands on Samsung Galaxy Fold from a retailer.

Immediately the internet began asking Samsung as to why did the company remove the video from the internet. But no comment has been made by the smartphone maker. And this made people around the globe speculate the reasons for Samsung asking iFixit to remove the video.

One thing is for sure that Samsung is working day and night to make the Galaxy Fold the first and the best foldable smartphone in history. Some of the speculations suggest that the design of the Galaxy Fold is going to change. Samsung wouldn’t have amicably requested to remove the teardown if it was not going to tweak a few things in the Fold.

It can also be assumed that the partner who helmed the role of a middle man between Samsung and iFixit was nothing but an ultimatum. Or the teardown showcased the vulnerabilities that features in Samsung Galaxy Fold and the company want to perfect the device before it is shipped around the world.

As of now, it doesn’t matter whether Samsung did a smart or right thing. The removal of the teardown made Samsung look bad around the smartphone enthusiasts. And there is one more thing that doesn’t make any sense. Even since the Galaxy Fold started to surface Samsung has been caught up in a frenzy of bad press. So, removing the video of the teardown of a smartphone that people have already shammed doesn’t feel right. At the time of writing the content, Samsung didn’t provide an insight as to what happened.
