Samsung has launched seven new devices at its Galaxy Unpacked 2020 event which left everyone astonished. The company has launched its latest lineup of the Galaxy Note 20 series with Galaxy Tab, smartwatch, and a lot more. The South Korean tech giant has also introduced the exciting Galaxy Z Fold 2 which comes with some exciting improvements. The company claims that they have made some significant improvements with the smartphone. Here are the details:
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 Specifications
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 flaunts a 7.6-inch edge-to-edge Infinity-O technology display with minimal bezels along with a 6.2-inch Infinity-O Cover Screen which is bigger than the original Galaxy Z Fold. To recall, the first-generation Galaxy Z Fold was launched with a 4.3-inch cover display which is comparatively smaller than the latest launch.
Meanwhile, the company didn’t want to unwrap the processor specification of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, so we still don’t have any idea about what’s there under the hood. According to the previous report, it was expected to be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC.
As far as cameras are concerned, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 sports a triple camera setup at the back along with an LED flash. Upfront it houses a punch-hole camera setup for selfies and video calls. The company didn’t reveal the camera specification of the latest foldable smartphone for some unknown reason, it has emphasized more on the aspect of durability during the presentation.
Just in case if you forgot, last year with the launch of Galaxy Z Fold Samsung witnessed major screen flaws. Some tech reporters also faced bad experience with the smartphone including protective screen peeling and screen breaking issues.
This year Samsung ensures that they will not witness any disaster like last year. According to the company, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 features UTG (Ultra-Thin Glass) which is said to be thinner than a human hair. The Ultra-Thin Glass ensures the durability of the smartphone and its lot more durable than the one which was equipped on the Galaxy Z Fold original. The same display technology is equipped on the Galaxy Z Flip as well.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 will be available for sale starting from September 1, it will be available in Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black color options. Moreover, the company has also joined hands with American fashion designer Thom Browne to bring a special edition Galaxy Z Fold2.
Thom Browne is the same designer with whom the company first partners to design the special edition for the Galaxy Z Flip which was launched back in February 2020. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 special edition will look similar to the Galaxy Z Flip with Browne’s red color design with white and navy blue stripes.
“Galaxy Z Fold 2 combines the portability and flexibility of a smartphone with the power and screen size of a tablet for ultimate productivity. Whether folded or unfolded, you can enjoy a luxury mobile experience with Galaxy Z Fold 2’s premium design,” reads the official blog post.
Samsung also claimed that the UTG is not only responsible for longer durability, but it also makes sure the phone will work smoothly at high and low temperatures. Besides, the company has also adapted the free-standing hinge feature from the Galaxy Z Flip. This will allow users to keep the device half-open from multiple angles.
Specifications like process, GPU, cameras are yet to be disclosed by the company, but it has confirmed that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is fueled by a 4,500mAh non-removable battery. It seems we have to wait until September 1 when the company is planning to make the device up for pre-orders. Also, there is no confirmation on the pricing of the second-generation foldable smartphone.
During the launch, the company has also revealed that from September 15, more than 100 Xbox games will be available on your phone or tablet, directly from the cloud (beta) with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate, including hits like Minecraft Dungeons and Gears 5.
“The Galaxy Note 20 series gaming experience is further up-leveled with its AI game booster and Bluetooth audio response optimization, and 240 Hz touch latency on the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. Plus, with a large and immersive display with smooth gaming experience thanks to the fastest processor in a Galaxy yet, the Galaxy Note 20 series is a pro-gaming set-up that fits in your pocket,” reads the official blog post.
Thoughts On Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2
It seems that the company wants to keep too many secrets from the consumers until September this year. But so far it’s fairly clear that Samsung has worked hard to improve the hinge and the display durability of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 as the company doesn’t want to take any risk this time.
The second-generation foldable smartphone doesn’t seem to arrive with a huge difference in terms of design compared to its predecessor. It seems Samsung has focused more on the durability of the phone and decided to stick with the same design by increasing the screen size.
