Samsung may have done a great job of keeping the Galaxy Fold under wraps last year but the same cannot be said for its successor. Newly leaked Galaxy Z Fold 2 renders have surfaced online today and they completely reveal Samsung’s upcoming foldable smartphone.
This is the first time that such renders of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 have been leaked online. We have only seen a blurry live image previously. The renders give us a great idea of just how the design has been improved compared to the foldable’s predecessor.
Our best look yet at the Galaxy Z Fold 2
The leak from MySmartPrice reveals that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will have significant design improvements compared to its predecessor. As expected, the new foldable smartphone has a much larger cover display and the notch that was seen in the previous model has now been replaced by an Infinity-O panel.
Removing the notch has enabled Samsung to significantly increase the display size without having to make the device larger. Fans of the physical fingerprint sensor will be delighted to see that it retains a side-mounted sensor. We can also see a triple camera setup at the back with the same circular cutouts as we’ve seen on leaked renders of the Galaxy Note 20. This is possibly a new design element that we might see being used for other Samsung devices in the future.
Earlier reports have suggested that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will have a 6.23-inch Super AMOLED cover display in addition to its 7.7-inch foldable Super AMOLED display that’s going to have a 120Hz refresh rate. The camera setup may consist of 64MP + 12MP + 12MP sensors in addition to a 10-megapixel selfie camera embedded in the internal display. A combined battery capacity of 4,356mAh is expected with 15W wired charging support. There’s obviously going to be support for 5G. The handset will be offered in Mystic Black and Mystic Bronze colors.
Samsung is expected to unveil the Galaxy Z Fold 2 on August 5 during its virtual Galaxy Unpacked event. Reports suggest that the new foldable may be priced at $1,980 as its predecessor.
