Screen material for collapsible phones has been growing steadily, and you can see a long way from the newly released Galaxy Z Flip. Samsung has started developing new screen materials for the next generation of collapsible phones, combining the advantages of the Galaxy Fold and Z Flip to provide a better experience, South Korean media The Elec reported.
The Galaxy Fold uses CPI (transparent polyimide), while the Galaxy Z Flip uses UTG (Ultra-Thing Glass), while Samsung is developing a new UTG-CPI screen material that glues layered screens together with transparent adhesive. At the same time with UTG glass material rigidity and CPI plastic material toughness.
Media Sam Mobile says the next-generation Galaxy Fold is expected to be equipped with the new material and may fit into the S Pen stylus. Elec warns that because of the complexity of manufacturing, layering the screen approach is only a stopgap measure, and Samsung is continuing to look for a better solution for its folding phones.
