We might be a few years away from the launch of a foldable iPhone, but Apple’s primary adversary, Samsung, is ready to launch its second-generation foldable smartphone. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is scheduled to be unveiled on August 5 alongside the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5G, but its image has been leaked ahead of the launch, making us wish for a foldable iPhone.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2, which will succeed last year’s Galaxy Fold, will be announced during Samsung’s online-only Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event. While its specifications have been swirling on the internet for the past few weeks, its image has surfaced for the first time, and it’s quite blurry. However, it gives us an idea of what to expect from Samsung’s next foldable screen smartphone.
Compared to the original Galaxy Fold, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 appears to feature a larger outer display, thinner bezels around the internal screen, and a more feature-packed camera setup. There also appears to be a new color, which Samsung is calling Mystique Bronze. Even the Galaxy Note 20 and the Galaxy Z Flip 5G will come in this new rich-looking color. It also appears to feature stereo speakers.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 will reportedly feature a 7.6-inch or 7.7-inch internal Super AMOLED foldable screen with a punch-hole-shaped cutout for the selfie camera. It could also feature a 6.7-inch outer display with a center-aligned punch-hole cutout for the selfie camera. This time, the internal screen will be covered with Samsung’s patented foldable Ultra Thin Glass (UTG) so that the screen doesn’t feel like it has a plastic film over it.
