A source in the South Korean publication DDaily confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 will use ultra-thin glass (UTG), similar to the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip. UTG’s debut has sparked controversy over whether it has a glass-like strength, but it now appears to have stood the test of time, with samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip sales starting with little evidence of glass damage.
As a result, Samsung has placed an order for a display for samsung’s new collapsible phone. At the same time, the company is working with Corning Corporation in the United States to increase production of 30 micronthless thin glass, with the aim of reducing the price of components.
The news further confirmed that Samsung was preparing to launch the phone in the third quarter, after earlier reports confirmed orders for other components of the phone.
Samsung’s Galaxy Fold 2 will reportedly be cheaper, open to a larger addressing market and will benefit from the addition of Samsung’s ultra-thin glass (UTG) technology, which could allow Samsung to offer the device a stylus option.
The recently released patent also shows that Samsung will make the device waterproof and dustproof, which will help greatly increase the life of the device.
