A person aware of the development claims that some of the processes for surface hardening have been changed to slightly improve the result but adds that users won’t be able to notice much difference.


However, it seems that noticeable improvements in this department could be seen with the upcoming smartphones from next year. Along with this, the smartphone also comes with Ultra Thin Glass (UTG) by Samsung, found on the Z Flip.

For those who are unaware, the South Korean giant had used polyimide (PI) screen on the first-generation Galaxy Fold smartphone. UTG, used in the current-gen device is prone to scratches but it could be improved with the next iteration. Further, Samsung has added a special protection film on top to make it more durable and improve touch sensitivity.
