Samsung’s upcoming foldable phone Galaxy Z Flip 6 will have a thicker cover glass than its predecessors, TheElec has learned.

The ultra-thin glass (UTG) cover window will be 50 micrometers thick compared to its predecessors’ 30 micrometers, sources said.

This was being done to increase the hardiness of the cover and will also decrease the crease in the middle, they said.

For last year’s Galaxy Z Flip 5 and Galaxy Z Fold 5 phones, Samsung introduced the water-drop hinge to also reduce the visibility of the crease.

Galaxy Z Flip 6 will also use the same hinge technology, but in the follow-up Galaxy Z Flip 7, Samsung is planning to upgrade its hinge technology to further reduce the crease, the sources said.

The UTG that will be used may also become even thicker than 50 micrometers, which will require the hinge to be changed, they said. However, these plans are not yet final.

Meanwhile, Apple, which is yet to launch its foldable phones, has been asking its display suppliers Samsung Display and LG Display to develop technologies to remove the crease.
