When Samsung announced their Note 20 handsets, they also kind of announced their next foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 which is the successor to the original Galaxy Fold. However, they stopped short of announcing a release date, but that mystery has since been cleared up.
Samsung has since confirmed that for those looking forward to the next-gen foldable, they’ll be able to get their hands on the Galaxy Z Fold 2 on the 18th of September. Unlike the first-gen model, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will come with support for 5G, and will also sport a larger outer display for those who felt that the first one was a bit too small.
According to the specs, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will feature a 6.2-inch front display and on the inside, a 7.6-inch display that brings us into tablet territory. It also sports a 120Hz refresh rate. In terms of performance, the handset has also been upgraded with a new Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ chipset that is accompanied by 12GB of RAM, and will come in either 256GB or 512GB of storage.
Samsung has also made some changes to the way the phone folds, where thanks to its new hinge design, it can be opened at various angles so suit your needs. The phone is also equipped with a triple camera setup on the back and is accompanied by a 4,500mAh battery. All of this won’t come cheap though and with a price tag starting at $1,999, you really have to like the technology if you want to invest in it.
