Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. said it had received "a few" reports of damage to the displays of samples of its upcoming foldable smartphone, raising the prospect of a less-then-smooth entry for the splashy $1,980 handset. The Galaxy Fold, on sale from April 26 in the United States, resembles a conventional smartphone but opens like a book to reveal a second display the size of a small tablet at 7.3 inches, or 18.5 centimeters.Shares of the company closed down 3.1 percent, while the broader market was down 1.43 percent.The malfunctions raised the specter of Samsung's doomed Galaxy Note 7 phone three years ago. Samsung has said it plans to make at least 1 million Fold handsets, versus the total 300 million phones it produces annually.
