#GapGate Widens As Samsung Responds Saying Some Space Is To Be Expected

Korean owners of the new Samsung Galaxy Note 4 have noticed that their brand new devices sport an unusual feature – a gap between the bezel and the screen that can fit a business card. The Gal Note 4, which hasn’t reached our shores, sold out on launch day.

Now the gap appears to be a perfectly normal occurrence. Samsung even addresses the gap in their documentation, noting that some space is to be expected. In their documentation, the company writes:

A small gap appears around the outside of the device caseThis gap is a necessary manufacturing feature and some minor rocking or vibration of parts may occur.
Over time, friction between parts may cause this gap to expand slightly.

Samsung also told AndroidCentral that the “issue does not impact the functionality or quality of the Galaxy Note 4.”

As some wags have noted, the gap allows users to carry their business cards right inside the phone and, perhaps, collect a little dust in there over time.
