As Schott AG – a Mainz-based company for special glass – has announced, a large international manufacturer will shortly be launching a foldable smartphone with wafer-thin and flexible special glass from the manufacturer. According to a statement by Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung it should be Samsung.
Galaxy Fold 2 as a candidate for Schott glass
Accordingly, the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Fold 2, which is to be presented as a kind of clone in the style of the Motorola Razr in February shortly before or around the next Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, should rely on the glass of the German manufacturer. Korean media are talking about an UnPacked event in mid-February, after the “folding cell phone” is to be immediately available in stores.
Record numbers and investments
From ultra-thin and flexible glasses to glass / ceramic connections, the specialist offers extensive solutions for the entertainment and automotive industries and, after a successful business year, has increased its investments for the current year to 320 million euros.
Schott AG, which has its roots in Jena, Thuringia, increased its sales by 5.1 percent to 2.2 billion euros in the fiscal year ending in September 2019. The surplus was EUR 206 million, slightly below the previous year’s EUR 208 million. Figures can be found in the annual report and the annual report.
The upcoming collaboration with Samsung could be another important step for the glass specialist and could attract potential new business partners from the field of consumer electronics.
