The successor for the highly-controversial Galaxy Fold released last year has finally been revealed by Samsung during its Unpacked event. Called Galaxy Z Fold 2, the device will hopefully correct the mistakes of its predecessor. Many users had been complaining about the first Galaxy Fold being too fragile, and Samsung didn’t try to hide it one bit.
However, we still have to wait almost a month until the full reveal of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2. The South Korean giant will uncover to us fully what the device is made of on September 1st.
Qualcomm’s latest processor
Thanks to Samsung’s Unpacked event, we still have a pretty good idea of what the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is capable of. The new device is packed with Qualcomm’s latest model of processor, the Snapdragon 865 Plus. The displays are also standing out – the main screen measures 7.6 inches, while the other one has 6.2 inches. The bigger and folding OLED screen has a high refresh rate of 120Hz.
Another good news is that Galaxy Z Fold 2 will be packing ultra-thin glass for the screen, which should be stronger than the plastic screen mounted on the first Galaxy Fold. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 will come in interesting colors: both “mystic black” and “mystic bronze”, and there’s also a limited Thom Browne edition.
Samsung didn’t announce a release date nor price of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, but it may be totally worth the wait. We don’t have info about other specs for now, but that doesn’t mean that they’ll be worth overlooking. The Snapdragon 865 Plus processor cannot possibly be accompanied by RAM or GPU that are NOT high-end.
Samsung experienced a surprising defeat in the top of the best-selling companies when it comes to smartphones. The Chinese company Huawei is leading the ranking for three months, and surely Samsung cannot comply with the second position.
