While we are seriously anticipating for the announcement of the second foldable smartphone by Samsung – the Galaxy Z Flip, at the company’s February 11 event where the Galaxy S20 family will also become launched, Samsung is working on a successor for last year’s Galaxy Fold as well.
The Galaxy Fold 2 will retain its predecessor’s form factor, unlike the Galaxy Z Flip which looks like the new Motorola Razr. The Fold 2 will feature an 8-inch display when unfolded and according to previous rumors, it will also have a 108 MP primary camera, ultra thin glass on top of the screen (not plastic like last year’s model), and an S-Pen.
The device will be powered by the Snapdragon 865 chipset, and will have 5G support. According to XDA Developers‘ Max Weinbach, who has provided a lot of Samsung-related leaks lately, the Galaxy Fold 2 will be unveiled at some point during the second quarter of the year – that’s between April and June. It’s unclear how soon after that it will become available, though, or how much it will cost. These details are sure to leak out in the future, however, so stay tuned.
