Magnets in Galaxy Fold (Hong-Kong version) | What should I Pay Attention to?

Last Update date : Sep 28. 2020

Due to the flexible nature of the form factor, while the hinge enables a seamless unfolding and folding experience, the magnets in Galaxy Fold holds the two sides together securely. It is harmless to most users but may be sensitive to medical and magnetic devices such an artificial cardiac pacemaker and a defibrillator. If you are using any of these medical devices, keep your device a safe distance from them and consult your physician before you use the device.

We recommend not placing your device near magnetic fields. Magnetic objects, such as credit cards, passbooks, access cards, boarding passes, or parking passes, may be damaged or disabled by the magnets in the device. Keep a safe distance between the device and magnetic objects. Do not place your device near magnetic fields.
