Samsung had revealed the Galaxy Z Fold 2 at Galaxy Unpacked 2020 but it didn't go into a lot of details about the new foldable's technical specifications, saving them for Unpacked Part 2. Several Galaxy Z Fold 2 characteristics have already been revealed via early hands-on and unboxing videos, so most Samsung fans already have a general idea of what to expect from this device. But not every technical detail has been revealed; until now.
WinFuture appears to have gotten hold of the Galaxy Z Fold 2's full spec sheet ahead of September 1. Various details are reiterated but in case you need to catch up on this device, this is your chance. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is powered by the Snapdragon 865+ chipset paired with 12GB of LPDDR5x RAM and 265GB of UFS 3.1 storage that's not expandable.
Leaked Galaxy Z Fold 2 display specs
Samsung's second-gen Galaxy Z Fold 2 is equipped with a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED cover display with HDR10+ capabilities, 60Hz refresh rate, and a resolution of 2260 by 816. The larger Dynamic AMOLED 2x foldable display has a 7.6-inch diagonal, 120Hz refresh rate, and a pixel count of 2208 by 1768.
Interestingly, although the Galaxy Z Fold 2's new foldable screen employs UTG (Ultra-Thin Glass), the panel reportedly features an additional plastic plastic protective film, claims WinFuture citing anonymous sources. We're guessing this plastic film should not be removed by users, or else they risk breaking the foldable display.
Leaked Galaxy Z Fold 2 camera specs
According to the source, the Galaxy Z Fold 2's main triple camera setup comprises a 12MP ultra-wide shooter with an f/2.2 aperture and 1.12um pixels; a 12MP wide shooter with an f/1.8 aperture, 1.8um pixels, Dual Pixel Autofocus, and OIS; and a 12MP telephoto sensor with an f/2.4 aperture and 1.0um pixels. The system is capable of recording videos at 4K resolution and can also shoot slow motion clips at 960fps.
The selfie cameras embedded in the Infinity-O cutout of both the cover and foldable panels are said to be identical. They have a resolution of 10MP, an f/2.2 aperture, and 1.22um pixels. They can record 4K videos at 60fps and take advantage of HDR10+, hyperlapse, night mode, and Bixby Vision.
Galaxy Z Fold 2: Other specifications
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 packs two batteries with a combined capacity of 4,500mAh. It's capable of 25W fast charging, 11W wireless charging, and Wireless PowerShare. The source claims that the battery can last for up to 31 hours on a single charge when limited to 4G connectivity, but obviously this figure will go down considerably with heavy usage.
Other details include stereo speakers tuned by AKG and a variety of sensors ranging from a side-mounted fingerprint scanner to a barometer, gyroscope, accelerometer, and compass. The phone-tablet hybrid supports connectivity features such as Bluetooth 5.0, WLAN, and USB-C. It's said to measure 159.2 x 128.2 x 6.9mm and weigh 279 grams, making it slightly shorter and narrower but a tad heavier than the original Galaxy Fold.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 will ship with Android 10 and One UI 2.5 out of the box, and it comes with a few foldable-specific software features like Flex Mode and the ability to run three apps simultaneously.
