Samsung is expected to launch its third foldable smartphone, Galaxy Z Fold 2, next month. Now a source says the South Korean tech giant is also working on three foldable phones – Galaxy Z Fold Lite, Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Fold S – and even mentions the types of displays used in these devices.
Samsung has been rumored to be launching an economical foldable smartphone, tentatively named the Galaxy Fold Lite. The device is likely to be sm-F415. Now, a South Korean tipzer named @hwangmh01 is tweeting that it will use CPI(colorless polyimide) instead of the UTG(ultra-thin glass) material of the Galaxy Z Flip and Galaxy Z Fold2 to cover the screen.
The original Galaxy Fold had a CPI-covered screen that wasn’t as strong as UTG, so it was more vulnerable to damage. Anyway, that would be understandable if it would reduce the cost of the folding phone, and a lot of Galaxy Fold users aren’t reporting any problems with their phones.
In addition to retaining UTG glass, Galaxy Z Fold 3 will also support the S Pen, but will be expensive, meaning it could become Samsung’s most expensive smartphone, sources said.
Finally, It’s been revealed that Samsung is also working on another foldable phone called Galaxy Z Fold S with an “in & out Fold” design. It’s not clear what this means, but It’s likely to be something like TCL’s triple Fold design.
