Folding screen phones — this is another new mainstream in the mobile world that has suddenly become

gain momentum.And despite the great production difficulties with the Galaxy Fold, Samsung has finally finalized it and is going to release it on September 18, when the new iPhone from Apple also becomes available.

Next in line will be radicalthe updated Mate X, which will become one of the main competitors of the Galaxy Fold. It will get the latest processor and a cool camera. Its launch is scheduled to take place in October 2019. Technically, it will be a step higher than the Galaxy Fold, but at the same time it will be more expensive.

From the mid-segment we expect the launch of MotorolaRAZR 2019: This phone will cost a fraction of the price of the Mate X. It has a unique clamshell design that folds along a horizontal rather than vertical axis. However, Samsung is apparently already preparing its clamshell phone with a foldable display, which should appear in 2020. You can see the patent for it below.

Galaxy Fold 2

Indeed, rumors surrounding foldable smartphonesis getting bigger and bigger. Meanwhile, Korean media are reporting some details about the new Galaxy Fold 2. It will feature a larger 8-inch display compared to the first version's 7.3-inch screen. The manufacturer is also forced to abandon some production aspects. In particular, the Galaxy Fold 2 will now use an 8-inch sheet of glass from DoInsys. The company has developed a glass protective film for foldable displays and has apparently created an ultra-thin tempered glass that can be applied to flexible smartphones.

Needless to say, the so-called ultra-thinglass (UTG) is more durable than the “regular” polyimide protective film that Samsung currently uses on the Galaxy Fold. How can glass bend without breaking? Well, the key word here is thin, and this glass has proven to be surprisingly durable.

Regarding the release date of the Galaxy Fold 2, the firstbatches of innovative DoInsys glass for the 8-inch Galaxy Fold 2 display should be by the end of the year. Therefore, we can assume that the Galaxy Fold 2 will be released around the spring of 2020.
