Samsung's Galaxy Fold turned out to be quite a stunner in the market last year and Galaxy Z flip too stuck the right chord with buyers. Now, the smartphone maker is all set to unveil its third foldable phone—the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2. The smartphone industry has faced a setback due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic with several makers pushing their launch date but Samsung seems unfazed. It will in all likelihood launch its next foldable phone on time.
As per the Korean publication ETNews, Samsung has finalized a design and has wrapped up trial manufacturing. Now as per a tipster, the Galaxy Fold 2 will have two color options including Martian Green and Astro Blue.
The reports have also revealed that the screen size of the Galaxy Fold 2 will be slightly bigger than its predecessor- Galaxy Fold. However, it will keep the folding technology and the form fact intact. In terms of weight, the Galaxy Fold 2 will be 15% lighter than its elder sibling. Fold 2 will reportedly weigh around 229 grams while the Fold is slightly clunky at 263 grams.
Contrary to what was being predicted earlier, the latest reports suggest that the Galaxy Fold 2 will not come with support for the S-Pen.
The Galaxy Fold 2 is likely to release alongside the other premium phone by the Seoul-based smartphone maker- the Galaxy Note 20. The Fold 2 will be Samsung's third foldable device after the Galaxy Fold and the Galaxy Z Flip, which released in February 2020, at Samsung's event held in San Francisco.
Coming to the pricing, not much is known about how Samsung plans to price its third foldable phone but some reports state that the Galaxy Fold 2 will be more affordable than its elder sibling, Galaxy Fold. The Galaxy Fold 2 could have two storage options, the 256GB one, and a 512GB variant, which would obviously be a little more expensive than the base variant.
The Galaxy Fold 2 is rumored to possess a Snapdragon 865 + 5G chipset under the hood. The phone will have two displays and the secondary display would be larger and it will have a bigger screen inside as well. In terms of the camera, Galaxy Fold 2 is tipped to feature a quad-camera setup on the rear which could include a 64-megapixel primary camera + 12-megapixel wide + 12-megapixel ultra-wide along with a depth sensor. It might feature a 10-megapixel front and cover camera. However, these are only based on the information shared by certain tipsters on social media. The company is yet to announce the complete specifications.
