The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is ready to be launched on the market. Renewed design compared to the previous model and even larger screen
Less than a week to the official presentation of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, the new foldable smartphone from Samsung. By now we know for sure that the smartphone will be part of the five devices that the South Korean company is preparing to present at the event on August 5. And along with the Galaxy Note 20 will be one of the undisputed protagonists.
For this second edition of the smartphone are expected many innovations, starting from the name itself. The most attentive will have noticed an imperceptible change in the name: last year it was called Galaxy Fold, this year it has added the Z, the letter used so far for the other foldable device from Samsung. But there will also be news in terms of hardware and design. It goes without saying that it will be a top of the range device with the best components on the market. Even at the level of design, however, the smartphone is ready to have its say: the size will remain the same compared to last year's model, but the bezels will be thinner, allowing Samsung to integrate a display with a diagonal of 7.6 inches.
Galaxy Z Fold 2, data sheet and design
We start from the design of the Galaxy Z Fold 2. In recent hours, a new image has appeared on the Internet that shows the entire internal screen of the device. And immediately jump to the eye some very special details. First, compared to last year's model there is no notch with the cameras inside, but in this new model there will only be a sensor integrated into a central hole. A solution very similar to the one already seen on the Galaxy S20. In addition, the side bezels of the internal screen are much thinner and have allowed Samsung to enlarge the screen, which goes from 7.3 inches to 7.6".
As for the internal components, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will be a real top of the line. On board will be either the Exynos 990 chipset or the Snapdragon 865+ with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. We've already talked about the screen: the internal one will be 7.6 inches, while the external one should occupy an entire facade of the device.
As for the photographic compartment, we shouldn't expect big changes compared to what we've already seen with the Galaxy S20. The sensors should be more or less the same. The battery should be more than 5000mAh.
How much will the Galaxy Z Fold 2 cost
The price should not deviate much from the previous model. It will start from a figure close to 2000 euros. Presentation set for August 5, with the arrival on the market expected in the following weeks.
