PSA: There is a screen protector on the Galaxy Fold's display. It's NOT a screen protector. Do NOT remove it.

The company told reporters that the film can notshoot because it is responsible for the operation of the screen. At the same time, in their reviews of the publication they noted that the instruction manual did not say anything about banning film removal, moreover, it very quickly — within two days — begins to move away from the screen itself.
The phone comes with a protective layer / film. Samsung says you are not supposed to remove it. I removed it, not knowing you’re not supposed to (consumers won’t know either). It appeared removable. I believe this contributed to the problem. pic.twitter.com/fU646D2zpY
