Samsung is supposedly dealing with Corning to produce Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG) for folding smartphones. That’s according to the South Korean tech blog site, Digital Daily, which declares that the tech giant wants to minimize expenses with the new deal that will see Corning produce the panels in the United States. The business is likewise obviously seeking to lower the weight of the UTG screens with the next-gen designs.
On the other hand, the report recommends that the upcoming Galaxy Fold 2 may not deliver with Corning panels. Rather, it may have screens made by South Korea’s Dowoo Insys and German company, Schott. Samsung has actually currently put orders for Galaxy Fold 2 panels with these two businesses. It deserves keeping in mind that these are the same two business that supplied screens for the first-gen Galaxy Fold.
There are no more details on the topic at the moment. Going by the report, it looks like the new tech will just be offered in 2021, and not before that. In either case, it will be interesting to see if the Corning’s UTG innovation will keep the business’s signature damage-resistant qualities. Let’s hope we get more details on this subject quicker instead of later on.
According to current rumors, the Fold 2 may have a 7.59-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. It is stated to be powered by either the Snapdragon 865 or the Snapdragon 865+ chipset and might be readily available in 256GB and 512GB storage variants.
