Galaxy Z Fold 2

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 partially unveiled

Galaxy Z Fold 2 brings bigger screens and better cameras

Samsung unveiled some details of its third device with a folding screen today, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, a follow up to the original Galaxy Fold, and joining the flip-phone type device the Galaxy Z Flip.

The Galaxy Z Fold 2 has a more refined design, a much larger 6.2in display on the front, a larger 7.6in folding display and improved cameras on the back.

Samsung also looks to have significantly thinned down the size of the Z Fold 2’s bezels, increasing the ratio of usable screen real estate while simultaneously beefing up its hinge and adding a slightly tapered design around the edges of the phone. 

At least one screen has a 120Hz refresh rate, but Samsung hasn’t specified which one – or if it is both screens.

Samsung said it had been “listening to user feedback on the most requested upgrades and new features” when building the new version of its folding phone.

On the inside, the Z Fold comes with a Snapdragon 865+ processor, 12GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage. Along with full support for 5G connectivity, the Z Fold 2 also comes with a 4,500mAh battery, a side-mounted fingerprint sensor, a triple camera module in back, an upgraded camera in front, and a new punch-hole selfie camera on the inside that takes up significantly less space than the massive notch on the original Fold.

The Z Fold 2 comes with the usual USB-C port on the bottom, though Samsung hasn’t included a headphone jack or stylus support, the latter of which has been high up on users wish list as it would transform the Galaxy Z Fold 2 into a Foldable Galaxy Note (kind of).

The new foldable 5G device is expected to cost similar to the £1,900 price of its predecessor.

We should find out everything else on September 1, when Samsung is hosting a dedicated Galaxy Z Fold 2 event at which we’ll find out more about the foldable phone
