Samsung fans are looking forward to the company’s next flagship launch of the year. It’s due to launch the successor of the Galaxy Fold, its first foldable smartphone. If rumors are accurate, it should be released alongside the Galaxy Note 20 in August this year.
Until that happens, information about the new device will continue to trickle in. The latest we hear about the device is that it’s going to be offered in these two colors. Of course, other colors may still be on offer in addition to these.
Galaxy Fold 2 will be offered in these colors as well
From what we hear, the Galaxy Fold 2, which is in development with the model number SM-F916, is going to be made available in Black and Brown colors. There may be other colors available for the device as well, including ones similar to what the Galaxy Fold is offered in.
We already expect that the Galaxy Fold 2 is going to have a lower starting price compared to its predecessor. As we exclusively revealed, the SM-F916 model of the device is going to be offered with 256GB of base storage. The $1,980 Galaxy Fold was only made available with 512GB of internal storage. Samsung will indeed offer 512GB storage for the SM-F916 as well, but the split will allow it to lower the entry cost for the device.
The Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to feature a larger cover display in addition to a 7.7-inch foldable display. There have been some rumors about variable refresh rate as well as S Pen support, but it’s too soon to be certain about any of that.
As far as the launch is concerned, Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Fold 2 alongside the Galaxy Note 20 in August this year. Given the ongoing pandemic, it’s unlikely that there’s going to be a major launch event, with the company likely opting for an online launch.
