Foldable phones become more reliable over time, so just look at the differences between the initial (Galaxy Fold) design and (Galaxy Z FlipFrom Samsung, however, there is still room for improvement, and both Samsung and LG are exploring ways to improve the durability of foldable phone screens.
I learned (ETNews) That both companies, Samsung and LG, have applied for patents on ways to reduce the amount of stress on foldable screens, as LG has developed a (control layer) that will protect a flexible OLED screen to reduce internal pressure, and the company has tested it. Also, LG confirmed that the new method greatly reduces stress.
In the meantime, Samsung has explored a pressure-sensitive adhesive on the hinge that would loosen its grip while the phone was folded, reducing internal pressure again, and the more force it exerts, the less the stickiness.
These are patent applications and they won’t necessarily translate into products, but the ideas here are relatively realistic, however, they’ve undergone some kind of testing, and it wouldn’t be surprising if the technologies you see here became a reality at some point if they hadn’t already.
There is definitely pressure to improve reliability, as foldable phones are not quite common yet, but they are advancing rapidly with devices like (Galaxy Z Fold 2) that have larger and more advanced screens. The more Samsung and LG make efforts to improve the life of foldable screens, the greater its chances of reducing phone costs and designing phones that are likely to spread in the future.
It is worth noting that Samsung officially announced its foldable smartphone (Galaxy Z Fold 2), along with its two smartphones (Galaxy Note 20) and (Galaxy Note 20 Ultra), and its two tablets (Galaxy Tab S7) and (Galaxy Tab). S7 Plus). The new phone comes as a successor to the (Galaxy Fold) from last year, and it features a new camera system, a larger external screen, in addition to making the front camera inside the screen. The Galaxy ZFold 2 – which matches its name with the Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Flip 5G foldable phones – is Samsung’s first major update to its flagship foldable phones, and it appears to have got an improvement on last year’s phone flaws.
