Despite the delayed release of the Galaxy Fold, Samsung went ahead with the FCC approval process of the foldable smartphone. The Federal Communication Commission approved the 5G version of the Galaxy Fold for the U.S. market yesterday, after some rigorous testing. Foldable News discovered the full test reports of model SM-F907N here. However, the FCC didn’t test the reliability or durability of the foldable display, only the wireless transmitters in the device.
The Galaxy Fold contains more electro-magnetic components than any other phone ever released. Cellular networking includes GPRS, EDGE, 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G. It also has Bluetooth, WiFi and NFC. All of these were checked for radiation emission levels and passed the tests.
The Fold was tested by PCTEST, a lab in Columbia, Maryland. The test facility checks devices against a comprehensive set of FCC regulatory technical requirements.
