Next month, Samsung is expected to unveil a second folding-screen smartphone called the Galaxy Z Flip, along with the announcement of the three-size Galaxy S20 series. Over the past few months, the Galaxy S20 has been leaked quite intensely, and rumors about Z Flip have been much less. Even so, there is reason to believe that the folding-screen new machine, formerly known as the Galaxy Fold 2 or Galaxy Bloom, could fix the worst of the galaxy Fold models of the first generation.

Galaxy Fold, released last year, exposed screen-easily compromised issues during media reviews, mainly accidentally tearing off the outer protective film (which is actually part of the screen structure) and the hollow of the hinges that easily fell into foreign objects.
The problem quickly fermented and led samsung to delay re-listing for five months. Even though the company has improved its design and offered consumers a certain screen change, many are concerned that the flexible screen could easily be damaged after multiple folds.
Because the exterior of the Galaxy Fold screen is made of plastic, rather than harder glass, it is easily scratched and damaged, which is why officials issue a lot of warnings in the box.
The main difficulty is that the glass is not easily bent, causing Samsung to be forced to switch to polymers. But there have been recent rumours that Samsung is expected to use collapsible glass on second-generation folding-screen smartphones to replace the previous plastic thin layer.
Corning is understood to have been investing in the development of such products for a long time, but it has not yet been determined that the company will supply foldable flexible screen protection glass to Samsung Galaxy Z Flip.
But Max Weinbach, a well-known whistleblower, points out that Samsung is integrating technologies for the Galaxy Z Flip, such as adding a layer of plastic to the glass, to provide extra protection.
Finally, the machine is expected to be equipped with Qualcomm SnapDragon 855 SoC and 3300 mAh batteries for a battery life or equivalent to the Galaxy S10.
