Samsung recently held an Unpacked event where new products by the company, including the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 were unveiled.
In this article, I highlight to you the specifications of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, which is a successor to the Galaxy Fold, its estimated price and many other details you might want to know about.

Release date

There is no current release date for the device. However, Samsung announced that the device would be available for pre-order from September 1. There will also be an event, presumably where we will see a full demonstration of the phone’s specs and capabilities. You can pre-register for interest on Samsung’s website.

Price

It’s tough to say what sort of price Samsung will put on the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2. The original Fold came in at £1,799, and as you’d expect the Z Fold 2 to be an upgrade on that device, it could be more expensive.
With Samsung placing importance on foldable and 5G going forward (and increased competition in both of these segments pushing prices down), we could see the Z Fold 2 on offer for less than the original Fold.

Design

The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 follows on from its book fold appearance. At the Unpacked, Samsung said it had two edge-to-edge, “nearly bezel-less Infinity-O displays.”
It’s certainly larger than its predecessor, with a 6.2-inch cover screen and a 7.6-inch main screen, compared to the Fold’s 4.6-inch cover and 7.3-inch main screen. Samsung touted the phone’s Ultra-Thin Glass display, which makes the hinge more durable, and the phone can fold at different angles, like the Z Flip.
It appears to have a stainless steel frame, but this isn’t completely confirmed.
Given the 120Hz refresh rate on the Note20 Ultra and S20 Ultra, and the emphasis on a good display that comes with foldable, we’d hope to see 120Hz on the Z Fold 2, although this isn’t confirmed yet.
We don’t know anything about RAM or storage, but 256GB is likely, with 512GB a strong possibility. The Fold had 12GB RAM; if the Z Fold 2 had more, it would be a pretty powerful phone, so it’ll probably still have 12GB.
As a 5G device, the phone will probably be packing a high-end Exynos/Qualcomm chipset.
Samsung has confirmed two colours for the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2: it’s much-hyped Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black. As with the S20 series, there will also be a version with a luxury design courtesy of a collaboration with New York fashion house Thom Browne.

Cameras

Currently, beyond what we can see of the cameras in promotional pictures Samsung has provided us, we know nothing about what the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is packing in the sensor department.
We can see it has a triple-camera rear setup. It’s hopefully going to be an improvement on the Fold’s and might be on the same level as Note 20, given the similarities in how their setups look. This would give the Z Fold 2 a 64MP telephoto lens, 12MP main sensor, and 12MP ultra-wide lens.
On the front, the Fold had a 10MP primary sensor, as does the Note20, so expect this, or perhaps a 12MP sensor.
