Samsung, after launching the Galaxy Fold now working on another foldable phone and may the launch phone next year as per the reports. After redesigning the Fold, the Polyimide screen still remains one of the most concerned delicate parts of the existing Galaxy Fold.[wpinsertshortcodead id=”bzyqm5d3e04029f48f”]
As per the reports of ETNews, Samsung may come with a permanent solution for the brittle display screen. Samsung may use ultra-thin glass to its next Galaxy Fold instead of transparent Polyimide screen.
According to the source, Samsung already started manufacturing the foldable displays for its next foldable phone while DOWOO INSYS has begun manufacturing the initial supply of UTG.
UTG is a thinner cover glass that goes through an extra tempered procedure. Each UTG maker utilizes its approach and does not make its knowledge on its core innovation public. UTG product that will be used by Samsung is based upon DOWOO INSYS’ technique and SCHOTT AG’s glass. Samsung Electronics and Samsung Display had checked UTG products from numerous domestic and foreign businesses, and they have eventually chosen to use DOWOO INSYS’ because it has the best technical skills when it comes to UTG and its technical skills are 4-5 years ahead of its competitors.
Ultra-thin glass (UTG) might not absolutely get rid of the fragility of the flexible display screen; however, it is stated to get rid of the crease that forms on the foldable panel along the hinge. UTG looks visually more attractive; however, it is even more delicate than transparent polyimide. A source also hinted at the UTG product being utilized on Samsung’s next clamshell foldable phone codenamed “Bloom” however, a second unnamed market expert isn’t so favorable about that. Seeing the challenges, we doubt if the company will use it soon. Moreover, next year’s galaxy Fold is said to bring a cheaper price tag. Now let see how this works out.
