The video uploaded by the South Korean firm shows the teams in different cameras and tests. The first chamber aims to check the resistance to environmental elements, while the second immerses the devices in a tank of water..
Passing these tests we find a mechanical arm designed to check the tactile response of the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 with the S Pen. The mechanical arm is calibrated and automated to carry out continuous lines.
