Samsung to sell foldable glass display of Galaxy Z Flip to other phone brands - Latest News

Samsung to sell foldable glass display of Galaxy Z Flip to other phone brands – Latest News

The ultra thin bendable glass display seen on the latest Galaxy Z Flip may soon be available for other phone brands to use in their foldable phones as Samsung Display has started to commercialise it.

The glass is produced using an intensifying process to enhance its flexibility and durability. In the process, the Ultra Thin Glass (UTG) is injected with a special material up to an undisclosed depth to achieve a consistent hardness, said Samsung. Samsung Display has been working with another Korean company on commercializing this glass since 2013. Samsung UTG is being first applied to the just-released Samsung Galaxy Z Flip smartphone, though the glass is expected to be adopted by other foldable electronic devices, when demand arises.

“Samsung Display had commissioned Bureau Veritas, the international certification agency in France, to test UTG durability and the Samsung UTG has successfully passed 200,000 fold tests simulating extreme life-time use reliability,” claimed the company.

In addition, Samsung Display has filed for trademark protection of “Samsung Ultra-thin Glass” in 38 countries including the United States, China, and much of the European Union. The tech giant is also planning to trademark its existing polyimide (PI) cover window.

“With our existing polyimide cover window, development of the new extremely flexible UTG cover window ‘Samsung UTG’ now enables us to meet more demanding customer needs. Clearly, Samsung UTG is a highly enticing manufacturing alternative which serves as another important example of our dedication to technology advancement and manufacturing excellence,” said Dennis Choi, vice president of the mobile display marketing team at Samsung Display.

Samsung Galaxy A71 Said to Launch in India Tomorrow: All You Need to Know

Samsung Galaxy A71 Said to Launch in India Tomorrow: All You Need to Know

Samsung is set to launch its premium Galaxy A71 smartphone in India on Wednesday for around Rs. 30,000 that will be just at the cusp of being a premium device. Tipped to house a massive 4,500mAh battery, Samsung Galaxy A71 may come in just one variant with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage, sources told IANS on Tuesday. The Galaxy A series — Samsung India’s mass to mid-range smartphones — account for a bulk of the company’s sales in India.

Last month, Samsung had launched the Galaxy A51 in India, its first Galaxy A smartphone this year.

The Galaxy A71 will feature a quad-camera set up with 64-megapixel main camera. Powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730 processor, Galaxy A71 will bring the benefits of Samsung’s signature Super AMOLED display. Samsung is also likely to bring some useful “Make for India” features in the Galaxy A71.

These consumer-centric features have been developed at Samsung R&D Institute, Bengaluru — the company’s biggest research and development facility outside South Korea.

The South Korean tech giant had first introduced these features in Samsung Galaxy A51 earlier this year.

Galaxy A71 is likely to go on sale across retail stores and online platforms on February 24.
