For sure you could sell even the most hideous phones to the target audience you've described – the magic formula being, adding some razzmatazz such as shimmery outer casing, unicorn iconography, rainbow patterns, lots of pastel colours and pink, etc.
Such a pity Microsoft didn't hire you to design the the exterior casing of the now retired Windows 10 Mobile (W10M) Nokia phones. Just imagine what could have been – W10M could have been the #2, behind Android and surpassing iØS phones.
Alas we shall never know.
G.G, 03 Apr 2020Glass is glass and glass can breakGlass is made from liquid sand, and the composition of sand is silicon dioxide.
In future, I suggest you keep your ill-informed opinions and false facts to yourself, for the internet is full of similar garbage.
As long as it scratches at mohs scale 2 its not important as a device.
You missed the part where the article says they are essentially doing the same thing as Apple:
"the mobile division at Samsung Electronics contacted “multiple foldable glass manufacturing companies”. That way the company can increase the competition between providers and lower the price while the technology improves over time."
Corretion: Samsungs own foldable "glass" will consist of 95% plastic and 5% glass.

I forget these point that's why company dont Care if they push same phones every year
I'm not the camera dude i take one to 5 picture every 3 months XD
That's why i want to stick to gaming phone"wild design" extrême power the jack
And all what a user wants i mean geek user XD
I hope they improve it.. The Huwawei is much less noticeable (and costlier) but they obviously have better tech (ive had all the folds in my hands to test)
NiklasP1993, 03 Apr 2020lilsam624 there is a very thin layer of glass behind the plastic!which does very little to protect the display underneath

And newsflash : most of them are fashion addicted and don't give a fly about the specifications as long as it looks super cute and glossy. They are the people this device addresses to. As long as they can show off in the club they'll buy it like hotcakes.
NiklasP1993, 03 Apr 2020lilsam624 there is a very thin layer of glass behind the plastic!True but indeed
1- its completly useless
2- it does only give pressure protection but not what people Can think hearing ,its just like a 11% more then only plastic layer
3-if it does fall or u forget a Nail ,fell in sand
Daily life accidents it will do nothing it will end horrib...
Even for Price its a joke plastic wich is x2 cheaper became more expensive then glass and metal body
So think about it if plastic who is the least hard to make and cheapest they sold it 1400$
So if we suppose WOW they made a fold glass screen for real :o
Imagine then the Price :) they are just wasting money materials and time for a 2004 phone
Would you rather have a weak and weird sized phone with not the best caméra in mid-range
Or take a S20 ultra for better in every point
Samsung Electronics is technology and android worldwide nothing else matters they will accomplish this easily.
If you want things done in a professional manner, don't trust others, do it yourself!
Don't be like Apple, who's outsourcing everything they do and takes credit for other's people work, only to say after that they are the ones who invented it lmfao..
To be frank, I wouldn't mind having 2 displays with a very, very thin bezel between them, instead of a single foldable display that's super fragile.
I'm more interested in a phone with a sliding real qwerty keyboard..
So, Samsung Electronics is a new rival for Samsung Display at making foldable glass display now? Lol. It's nice they trying to make the glass thicker to lessen the creases. Hope they can figure it out somehow.
lilsam624, 03 Apr 2020samsung plastic is not glass!!!lilsam624 there is a very thin layer of glass behind the plastic!
So, until they don't get a thicker folding glass, the idea of a Galaxy Fold with a stylus is out...
