Just weeks after unveiling the Galaxy Z Flip, the Korean electronics giant shuttered a factory over the weekend in South Korea that produces that clamshell-like smartphone, Sammobile reported Sunday. The plant in the city Gumi, South Korea, was shut down after an employee of the wireless division that’s in charge of smartphone production tested positive for the pneumonia-like illness, the site reported.
The factory is expected to reopen Monday, and the shutdown’s impact is expected to be minimal, Sammobile reported.
Samsung didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.
Samsung isn’t the only smartphone maker that may be affected by the illness. Apple said earlier this month that it likely will miss the quarterly revenue guidance it gave last month, citing two reasons for the update: The coronavirus is hurting both demand from Chinese customers and production capabilities inside China.
