Samsung Electronics’ foldable smartphone to be released in 2021, with touch pen and UTG thickness different?

The cover window material of Samsung Electronics 'Galaxy Z Fold 2' which will be released in the second half of this year, is UTG like 'Galaxy Z Filp'. The reason why Samsung Electronics prefers UTG is analyzed for its sense of luxury, differentiation, and sensitivity for the touch pen expected to be applied in the future. In 2021, the market for over 10 million foldable phones is expected to expand, and the main cover window material of Samsung's foldable phones will be UTG. To respond to this, Dowooinsys should increase their capacity.

3F starts construction of 1,100 tons of PI production plant annually

China has entered the localization of PI. Although it has grown to the world's highest level of LCD production, it is still only a few percent in the OLED panel market. In the OLED field, the Chinese government continues to invest heavily in panel makers, mainly BOE, to help China become the best production base. However, the supply chain of parts and materials that are essential for producing OLED is very poor.

Foldable Phone Cover Window Material Competition To Heat up.

Ahead of Samsung Electronics' unpacking event, interest in the foldable phone cover window material is hot. There was a concerned surprise that the Galaxy Fold, which was scheduled to be released in the first half of last year, was delayed for several months due to the tearing issue of the protective film. This year’s concern is whether Ultrathin Glass (UTG), which has emerged as a substitute for Colorless Polyimide (CPI), can be mass-produced without major issues.

전면지문인식 풀스크린 스마트폰 경쟁 시작

전면 지문인식은 크게 광학식과 초음파식이 검토되고 있다. 광학식은 가격이 저렴하고 양산에 용이하지만, 센서가 OLED panel 하부에 위치해야 하므로 OLED 기판이 투명해야한다. 따라서 glass를 기판으로 사용하는rigid OLED에는 적용이 가능하지만 유색PI를 기판으로 사용하는 flexible OLED에는 적용이 어려운 상황이다. 초음파식은 정확성과 내구성이 가장 안정적이지만 제조가격이 비싸다는 단점이 있다.

[iMiD 2017] OLEDON, 2250ppi OLED제조용 면소스 FMM 증착 원리 공개

28일 개최한 iMiD 2017에서 단국대학교의 실험실 벤처 OLEDON사 대표 황창훈 교수는 2250ppi를 구현할 수 있는 면소스 FMM 증착 기술에 대해 발표하였다. 황창훈 교수의 발표에 따르면, OLEDON에서 개발한 면소스 증착 기술은 기존 유기물 증착 방식과 다르다. 면소스 FMM 증착 기술은 유기물을 금속면에 1차로 증착하여 도너 박막을 형성하여 면소스를 만든 후, 이를 재 증발하여 기판에 유기물 박막을 형성하는 원리이다. 이 기술을 적용하면 유기물은 면증발로 인해 수직성 기체빔을 형성하게 된다.
