Samsung unveiled its new foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold 2, at Galaxy Unpacked 2020 on 5 August. If you thought the previous Z Fold or Galaxy Z Flip was impressive, wait until you see what the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is capable of.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 — What you need to know
Reshape what is possible
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is Samsung’s third foldable phone. By now, the manufacturing giant knows what work and what doesn’t. It’s evident that Samsung listened to user feedback when taking a peek under the hood of this innovative device.
“The Galaxy Z Fold 2 combines the portability and flexibility of a smartphone with the power and screen size of a tablet for ultimate productivity.”
Display and appearance
The Z Fold 2 comes packed with two edge-to-edge, almost bezel-less Infinity-O display screen. The cover screen measures 6.2-inches while the 7.6 main screen utilizes the best use of screen surface.
Furthermore, the device is available in two colours, Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black. Samsung also collaborated with a New York fashion house to create a limited Thom Browne Edition for those seeking a unique premium experience.
Whether folded or unfolded, you can enjoy a luxury mobile experience with Galaxy Z Fold 2’s premium design”.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 folds over a vertical axis down the middle, much like a book. In doing so, the two screens create one large foldable screen on the inside; and I simply love the bookish appearance.
Unfortunately, Samsung didn’t indicate when the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will be available, or how much it will be selling for.
