Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G pre-orders open in UK

Galaxy Z Fold 2 brings bigger screens and better cameras

Samsung officially unveiled its third device with a folding screen today, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, a follow up to the original Galaxy Fold, and joining the flip-phone type device the Galaxy Z Flip.

“The journey to reach the next generation of smartphones is full of originality and innovation,” said Conor Pierce, Corporate Vice President UK & Ireland, Samsung Electronics. 

“With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, we listened closely to customer’s feedback to ensure we were bringing meaningful improvements to the device, while also developing new innovations to enhance the user experience. Further strengthened by our industry-leading partnerships with Google and Microsoft, we’re reshaping and redefining the possibilities of the mobile device experience.”

The Galaxy Z Fold2 54G 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 has significantly thinned down the size of the Z Fold2 5G’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. 

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 Fold2 5G comes with a Snapdragon 865+ processor, 12GB of RAM, and up to 512GB of storage. Along with full support for 5G connectivity, the Z Fold2 5G 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 Fold2 5G 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 Fold2 5G into a Foldable Galaxy Note (kind of).

Galaxy Z Fold2 5G Thom Browne Edition

Samsung and Thom Browne continue their collaboration to deliver a unique vision of innovative technology and refined design with the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G Thom Browne Edition. Following the success of the Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition, the second release further explores its shared ethos to provide a deeper level of hardware and software integration.

The geometric grey and signature multi colour stripe is complemented by a grosgrain pattern, creating a visual texture of fabric on Galaxy Z Fold2 5G’s unique design. Software additions, including a new lock screen and exclusive photo filter, digitise the Thom Browne world and bring a sense of luxury into every interaction.

Each Thom Browne Edition Package includes the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, Galaxy Watch3, Galaxy Buds Live and an array of fully customised accessories all featuring elements of Thom Browne’s iconic design.
