Famed leakster Ice Universe had claimed that the Samsung’s upcoming foldable smartphone Galaxy Fold 2 may have an “ultra-thin glass display” instead of plastic.

The South Korean tech giant has also applied for trademarks in Europe for Samsung Ultra Thin Glass or UTG and according to sources this will be the material used for its next foldable, which some have dubbed the Galaxy Fold 2, The Verge reported recently.


Ice Universe had earlier also shared images allegedly showing the upcoming Galaxy Fold 2, Samsung’s clamshell foldable phone that it is going to release alongside the Galaxy S11 next year.

The images depict a clamshell-like device similar to a traditional flip phone that folds up into a compact palm-sized phone. Two cameras can be seen on the back next to a digital clock readout along with a centered punch-hole cutout for the selfie cam. The back appears to be made out of glass while the hinge looks similar to the one on the Galaxy Fold.

Additionally, the smartphone seems to be running on the latest version of Samsung’s One UI 2.0, based on Android 10.

The upcoming foldable phone is expected to cost around $1,000.

The current Galaxy Fold handset is priced at nearly $2,000 which is not an amount most people are willing to pay and is not accessible to a larger segment of the population.

Apart from damaging the lungs, the virus can also cause acute myocardial injury and chronic damage to the cardiovascular system.

COVID-19 has led to complications and health risks manifold for patients with non-communicable diseases. Almost 75-80 percent of the COVID patients don't require hospitalisation and can recover at home with teleconsultation, but COVID-19 infections can leave the patient with long-term side effects. There are many instances where symptoms of COVID-19 have persisted for several months. Apart from damaging the lungs, the virus can also cause acute myocardial injury and chronic damage to the cardiovascular system.

According to research published in the European Heart Journal, Covid-19 patients who suffer cardiac arrest have a higher possibility of dying as compared to those who are not infected with it, and especially women are at an increased risk of death for the same reason. The virus may directly breach the ACE2 receptor cells, within the myocardium tissue and cause direct viral harm. COVID can result in inflammation of the heart muscles which is known as myocarditis and it can lead to heart failure over time, if not taken care of.

People with a pre-existing heart problem need to be extra cautious. A significant number of patients have suffered cardiac arrest during the recovery period, often resulting in death. Expert suggests that even though the COVID virus wanes, the immune response continues to be hyper-active and that often ends up attacking other organs. It has been observed that almost 80 per cent of these patients have had cardiac arrests 2-3 weeks after testing COVID positive.
