As a result, the screen on the Galaxy Fold 2 will belook flatter, according to the source, who added that it is "the right material for the cover of foldable phones." Last month, Samsung reportedly agreed to an exclusive long-term contract with DoInsys to sell ultra-thin «sheets» glass

Earlier this month, LetsGo Digital discoveredthat Samsung has requested three trademarks from the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO). The three names for which the manufacturer wanted to protect were Samsung Ultra Thin Glass, Samsung UTG, and UTG.

Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to beintroduced along with the Galaxy S11 lineup during an event scheduled for February 18th. Unlike the much larger Galaxy Fold, which opens along the vertical axis to get a 7.3-inch tablet, the new version is designed to be used as a handheld device.

It is expected that the external screen will displaynotifications, information about incoming phone calls, time, date and weather. It is reported that Samsung will set a price tag of less than $ 1,000 for a second-generation folding phone, which will give a huge price advantage over Motorola Razr, which is considered the main competitor to the Galaxy Fold 2.

Besides the improved display, Samsung likereportedly improving the hinge, allowing the Galaxy Fold 2 to close without a gap between the two sides. Despite the fact that its price can be much lower than that of Razr, Samsung plans to equip its next folding model with flagship characteristics. We expect to see the Snapdragon 865 mobile platform, 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of memory. It is not clear which Samsung camera system will be included in the Galaxy Fold 2. Android 10 will be preinstalled on board. The model will have 5G connectivity support. The Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to run on two separate batteries, one of which will have a capacity of 900 mAh, and will be compatible with Samsung’s 45W fast charger.

Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 will be the first folding device using a glass screen. This will set the standard that all other folding smartphones should subsequently meet.
