Samsung is set to unveil a bunch of new devices the next week August 5 at the Galaxy Unpacked event. The event will bring the Galaxy Note20 family to the light alongside new wearables such as the Galaxy Watch 3 and Galaxy Buds Live. The Korean giant will also launch a new pair of tablets under the Galaxy Tab S7 branding. Then, we’ll be seeing the brand new member of the Galaxy Fold family in the form of Galaxy Z Fold 2.
A couple of leaks has surfaced before now, however, a recent one is bring the best glimpse of the new foldable phone to our eyes, courtesy from MySmartPrice. It brings a couple of high-resolution renders showing the foldable phone and its stock wallpaper. One of the biggest changes in this new Z Fold 2 is that it ships with a punch-hole design. It replaces that the notch that occupied a good amount of the screen in the original fold. According to the images, we have a much cleaner design.
In addition to the new cutout, the new foldable smartphone also features a bigger cover display. Therefore, you will get a phone that is more useful in its folded status. It’s a more versatile phone since you will not need to unfold it every time.
Another interesting detail is that the leaked render confirms the handset in the Mystic Bronze color option. This color seems to be Samsung’s hero color for this year’s Galaxy Unpacked. All other Galaxy devices will have a Bronze color option.
