Samsung was the first to release a foldable phone to the market, the Samsung Galaxy Fold but the phone sure had its fair share of issues. Even before the company actually shipped out the phone to its users, they did however ship out review units and it did turn out too good.
Shortly after the review units were shipped out, they started breaking and many big tech YouTubers came to twitter with images and videos of their Samsung Galaxy Fold not working.
Although Samsung recalled all those review units and fixed the issues that were causing the breaks and then released the phone to users, its still a very sensitive phone that can easily be damaged from day to day use with its plastic screen that is soft enough that you can ruin it by scratching it with your fingernail.
This time however, a tipster who goes by Ice Universe, says that there is a pretty good chance that Samsung will likely use “an ultra-thin glass cover” in the Galaxy Fold 2 or whatever they’re new foldable phone is called.
The second generation of the Fold is said to be launched around April of 2020 and it is said to be bigger and will have a new clamshell folding mechanism instead of the book style fold.
The screen is said to be 8.1 inches while unfolded and Samsung might add the S-Pen stylus to the phone too. Some rumors do suggest that Samsung might end up combining the Fold and the Note series but that is still far-fetched and highly unlikely to happen since the Note series is going strong.
There may also be a cheaper variant of the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the working is said to be working on it.
