Key Galaxy Fold 2 display specs, 120Hz refresh rate revealed

Samsung is due to launch the Galaxy Fold 2 in a couple of months. Many are looking forward to seeing what improvements have been made. Earlier reports have suggested that Samsung will increase the display size and may also opt for Ultra-Thin Glass.

A new report out of South Korea has revealed some key Galaxy Fold 2 display specs. It also mentions that the internal foldable display is going to have a 120Hz refresh rate. If true, this would be quite a massive improvement compared to the original Galaxy Fold.

Galaxy Fold 2 to have a 120Hz refresh rate display

We’ve heard the numbers before and today’s report reiterates them. The Galaxy Fold 2 will feature a 7.7-inch internal display, which is only 0.4-inch larger than the Galaxy Fold’s 7.3-inch display. However, the external cover display will jump from 4.6-inch on the Galaxy Fold to 6.23-inch on the Galaxy Fold 2.

This will be a very welcome change. As we pointed out in our Galaxy Fold review, the cover display was too small to get any meaningful use out of it. A 6.23-inch display would be more than enough to get stuff done and even consume content without having to unfold the device.

When you do unfold the device, the Galaxy Fold 2 will greet you with a 7.7-inch 120Hz refresh rate display. Samsung first introduced 120Hz displays with the Galaxy S20 lineup and once you shift to the higher refresh rate, it’s not easy going back down.

The 7.7-inch display will have a 2213×1689 resolution with an 11.8:9 aspect ratio. The notch will be replaced in favor of punch holes for the front-facing cameras. The 6.23-inch cover display will have 2267×819 resolution with 24.9:9 aspect ratio. It will have a 60Hz refresh rate and a punch hole as well for the front camera.

The Galaxy Z Flip came with Ultra-Thin Glass, making it the world’s first smartphone with a foldable glass display. Samsung is bringing over the same display technology to the Galaxy Fold 2. The transparent polyimide layer it used for the Galaxy Fold is gone so its successor will be more durable as well.

The report goes on to mention that Samsung is planning to produce around 3 million units of the Galaxy Fold 2. It has begun ordering parts for the device and it’s expected that production will begin in July. Samsung will reportedly be aiming to manufacture 300,000 units of the Galaxy Fold 2 per month.

The Galaxy Fold 2 is going to be unveiled alongside the Galaxy Note 20 on August 5 in a virtual Unpacked event. According to another report, both devices will be available on August 20.
