With the Galaxy Z Flip launch out of the way, Samsung can now focus on getting the Galaxy Fold 2 ready for launch in the second half of this year. There’s a lot of excitement about the next foldable device, largely because people want to see how Samsung improves it compared to its predecessor.

Some early Galaxy Fold 2 rumors have already hit the interwebs, suggesting that there’s going to be S Pen support and powerful new cameras. This isn’t the first time that we’ve heard about the possibility of S Pen support for the Galaxy Fold 2.

Galaxy Fold 2 rumors have already started coming in

The rumors that are now making the rounds on Twitter suggest that the Galaxy Fold 2 is going to have an Infinity-V cover display. This raises the possibility of a larger cover display on the upcoming device, compared to the original Galaxy Fold’s 4.6-inch display.

It’s rumored to use an under-display camera for the main selfie camera, making it the first Samsung smartphone to feature the tech. There’s a chance that it may be positioned off-center since the foldable display will surely have a crease straight down the center. Be that as it may, it’s certainly going to be a much better option compared to the separate module found up top on the original Galaxy Fold.

It’s also said that the Galaxy Fold 2 will have the same camera setup as the Galaxy S20+. The setup includes a 12-megapixel primary camera with a 12-megapixel ultra-wide and 64-megapixel telephoto camera. There’s also a ToF sensor for AR experiences. It would be capable of 3x hybrid optic zoom and Space Zoom up to 30X. Many expect Samsung to ship the Galaxy S20 Ultra’s bonkers camera setup with its flagship foldable and that could happen since nothing is set in stone for now.

A recent report has also claimed that the Galaxy Fold 2 will have a 7.7-inch foldable display on the inside with Samsung’s Ultra-Thin Glass on top for enhanced protection. It will be slightly larger than the 7.3-inch Infinity Flex display on the Galaxy Fold. The display may also support a new kind of S Pen, but this is just speculation at this stage, we haven’t seen anything concrete as yet to suggest that Samsung would bring S Pen support to its foldable lineup.

We are surely going to hear a lot more rumors about the Galaxy Fold 2 in the coming weeks and months. It will be interesting to see if the device does really ending up being what many think it will be.
