The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has been finally announced.
Launched alongside the Galaxy Note 20 series, Galaxy Watch 3, and Galaxy Buds Live, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 fixes some of the issues that we have on the first model. For starters, the outside screen is now larger. At 6.2-inches, it now occupies the entire screen. It’s an AMOLED panel with a regular 60Hz refresh rate. There’s still a single camera on the top, but now tucked-away on a punch-hole.
The large screen on the inside is now at 7.6-inches from 7.3-inches. The cameras has been moved to a punch-hole and the bezels are much thinner to give room for more for the screen. Speaking of which, the screen itself uses a Dynamic AMOLED panel, with a smooth 120Hz refresh rate, and a 2208 x 1768 pixel resolution.
On the back, we have the same triple 12-megapixel sensors, with the main one sporting optical image stabilization (OIS). The camera design, and the new Mystic Bronze color option, is identical to the Galaxy Note 20 series. A Mystic Black and limited edition Thom Browne variant will also be available.
To not repeat its bad history, Samsung borrowed the “Flex Mode” idea from the Galaxy Z Flip.
As for the internals, rumor has it that the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 will feature, thankfully, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus processor, with 12GB of RAM, 256GB of storage, 5G connectivity, 4,500mAh battery, 25W fast charging, and 11W wireless charging. An official specs list shall be out soon.
The official price and availability of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 shall be announced before pre-order starts on September 1.
