Technology Behind

Samsung's folding phones are built for the future, with you in mind. Our folding screen phones are manufactured of highly developed, super thin Corning Gorilla Victus glass that is ultra flexible, allowing you to fold and unfold your phone with ease.

A carefully constructed, unique spine or hinge at the heart of each phone's creative design allows you to open and close the phone. When you close your folding phone shut, the two sides of glass do not touch, preventing friction between the two halves. The hinge may also be utilized to hold your Galaxy Z Fold4 or Galaxy Z Flip4 half open at varied angles, which is ideal for capturing selfies or recording vlogs.

What materials are used to make Samsung folding screens?

The latest foldable Galaxy Z series phones from Samsung are made of ultra-thin folding glass technology constructed from layers of very inventive materials. Corning® Gorilla® Glass Victus®+ is the hardest Gorilla® glass ever, with outstanding damage resistance, amazing flexibility, and a wafer-thin design. There's no need to be concerned about scratches, bumps, and knocks because Gorilla® Glass Victus® withstood drops onto hard, rough surfaces from up to 2 metres in lab tests.

Corning® Gorilla® Glass 6 - a highly robust glass built for the future - is found on the rear of your foldable phone. Engineered to survive drops from 1.6m and with a 2x improvement in scratch resistance over industry standard aluminosilicate. On a Samsung foldable phone, enjoy the most flexible and robust glass available.

Servicing Samsung Phones With Foldable Screen

Although today's foldable phones are well-made, the materials used to manufacture folding screens are unquestionably more sensitive than those used in traditional slab-style phones. Although a cracked or damaged screen is not unavoidable, you should be prepared for it. This includes understanding where to go for repairs and how much they will cost. If you possess a Galaxy Z Fold 4 or Flip 4, you might be wondering how much it costs to repair the folding display.

The inside display of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 may cost up to $357 to fix. The inner screen of the Galaxy Z Flip 4 will set you back $219.

When paying out of pocket

Screen module replacement entails replacing the screen, the metal bezel, and the battery. This will reverse not only the screen's damage, but also the most likely types of ancillary harm. Because it is a part swap, it may also be dropped off in person and typically be ready the same day. This service has the following pricing structure.

Personal Experience

Ana has told her own story, how she sent her Samsung phone to independent repair center: "I had a Samsung phone with a foldable screen that needed repair and was in a hurry to have it done quickly and not break the bank at the same time. I went to an independent service center for phone repairs and was pleasantly surprised at how affordable it was. 
 They were able to diagnose my issue within minutes and got started on the repair right away. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable, explaining exactly what they were doing as they worked on my phone's folded screen. I felt confident that they knew what they were doing and that my phone was in good hands. 
 The repair went very smoothly, taking only about an hour to complete – something much faster than I expected considering how difficult it can be to work with a foldable device! When the job was all finished, my phone looked good as new and worked perfectly once again.  
 It’s so reassuring to know that when something needs fixing, there are still independent service centers out there who can get the job done quickly and effectively at budget-friendly prices. I won’t hesitate to go back there if ever need arises!"
