Samsung has been a leader in the foldable smartphone category having launched a few devices with the new form factor. Several other manufacturers are entering the category and one of them is Google with its new foldable Pixel smartphone.
Now, a new report coming from Korea claims that Samsung will be supplying its ultra-thin glass (UTG) to Google. So far, Samsung Display is supplying Ultra-Thin Glass exclusively to Samsung Electronics.
It is believed that the South Korean company decided to sell UTG to other companies as it plans to expand its foldable display business. Along with Google, the company could start shipping UTG to other companies in the second half of this year.
Ultra-Thin Glass was announced by Samsung in February last year and is manufactured using an intensifying process to achieve enhanced flexibility and durability compared to traditional polyimide cover window.
For those who are unaware, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip was the first phone to use the Ultra-Thin Glass as the cover window for its inner screen. The recently launched Galaxy Z Fold 2 also uses UTG.
As for the foldable Google Pixel smartphone, there’s no information about the phone’s design or features. But it is claimed that the device will be using Samsung Display’s foldable OLED panel. While the launch date is not known, it is believed that the phone will be unveiled at a hardware event in the fall along with Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro.
