Is there plastic film on this phone or not?

I got this phone and it came with this film mask thing that i think your supposed to apply to the screen, then peel it off, which is supposed to removed some film (?)
But the phone already has a little tab on top of the covering thats already attached (it says A5L so you know what im referring to)...so you pull the tab and it comes off really easily.
Q: is there another film underneath that that only comes off with that mask thing that you apply? I looked and looked and i dont see any curling edges or anything, so Im wondering why they include that mask application thing.
Maybe that mask is just something they ship with all phones, in case the other film doesnt have a tab ot something?
thanks for any help

I would ask the seller or the manufacturer about it first before just trying to peel it off.

If you check on the new folding screen phone Samsung there was what looked like a protective film on the screen and two reviewers attempted to pull it off and to their horror ruined the phone. Samsung had done a poor job explaining to folks that the film is actually a part of the screen which allows it to fold up and unfold. Removing it meant you ruined the touch and display aspects of the phone.

So when will they release the new folding screen phone? the screen won't break easily anymore?

Its hard to say, I think the fact that its a very hard engineering problem to make an indestructible screen that can survive 1000's of screen foldings and not break.

Some of the phones out for review somehow got dirt in the joints which caused the screen to fail. I think that will force them to try a different design like two edges that seamless touch when unfolded.
