Samsung teased the launch of Galaxy Z Fold2 at its Galaxy UnPacked 2020 August event. However, it didn’t details the specifications, price, or availability. Today, Samsung took the stage at UnPacked 2 to reveal the missing details.
The Galaxy Z Fold2 comes packed with two edge-to-edge, nearly bezel-less Infinity-O Displays. The Cover Screen is 6.2-inches and the Main Screen is 7.6-inches making them both larger than the original Galaxy Fold. The interior display offers a 120Hz refresh rate, while the one on the outside has a 60Hz refresh rate. It comes with a side-mounted fingerprint scanner. It will work on Verizon’s 5G Ultra Wideband network and its 5G nationwide network, coming later this year.
The foldable phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus SoC, paired with 12GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 256GB of internal storage. On the optics front, it sports a triple rear camera setup of 12MP main lens + 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera + 12MP telephoto sensor. There is a Flex Mode that Mode allows for hands-free photos and videos on the 10MP Selfie lens, and delivers a new way to experience select apps by using both halves of the large display to chat, record, browse, edit, and more.
