Angela Long From CNET

It’s official: Samsung is going to his third foldable phone, as well as the next Galaxy Note. Industry observers expect this device to the Galaxy-Fold 2, the successor to the the original Galaxy folds instead of a rushed update on the smaller, cheaper Galaxy Z-Flip, which is barely three months old. The news was not yet so much known, as slyly the beginning, revealed in an earnings report this month that written differently. doom and gloom for Samsung business as a result of coronavirus-related delays. 

In Samsung’s own words: “The company will continue to differentiated products to offer in the premium segment with the introduction of a new flip-up and touch-models.” But the world’s largest phone maker, will release a cheaper version of the galaxy trade E and how much could it cost? (More details below).

Samsung’s confirmation comes as phone sales in the previous year, threatens comparison to 38% in February in comparison to the year 2019, and a major recession. To increase the very extravagance of other expensive foldable mobile phone could eyebrows in a time when companies like Samsung, seem to be to fall back on the cheaper devices, like the new $400 Galaxy A51 on sale now, an excellent value.

But apart from folding, what do we know about the speculated Galaxy Fold 2? We will update this regularly with the most important rumors.

Galaxy Z-Flip is the best foldable mobile phone so far


Galaxy Fold 2 design: Same shape, but it’s better

It is likely that the Galaxy 2 would work, from the original Form, tangles, tucking and refinement on the way. Common logic would expect that the same design-which brings the bigger screen on the inside of a device that opens like a book, and the more robust, smaller Display on the outside ” cover,” a Form that protects the inner screen from additional damage.

Some of the earliest galaxy tray 2 rumors suggested that the phone could be a new form with the larger screen on the outside, but most of the rumors point of the fold 2 is more like the first fold, with specs and cosmetic features with the Galaxy S20. More on this below.

The Galaxy 2 can a pen. The original could not

Almost a year ago, I suggested that the Galaxy of folds and the killers of accessories is a pen would be like on the Galaxy Note family. The would S make Pen, the wrinkles differ much more like a tablet, and multitasking tool, and help, to Samsung foldable mobile phone from the rest.

There was only one problem with that. The original, you fold the plastic screen was to get soft and infamous damage-prone to the pressure of a finger nail, much less a pen. But with enough structural support, and a flexible glass screen (ultra-thin glass, or UTG) — the rumors about a 2-fold with a stylus first with the Z-Flip — possible.

Other rumors have suggested that Samsung would be the task of their plans, are the S-Pen. We will see how it all comes together.

there is a cheaper Galaxy-subject E or folding Lite in the works?

What if it’s not just a new Galaxy-specialist headed our way, but two or even three? Prolific mobile leaker Max Weinbach, who also writes for XDA-developers, tweeted a rumor that Samsung may have a Galaxy-subject E or Galaxy fold Lite in addition to the more premium Galaxy 2.

Weinbach tweet called even a possible price: $1.100 for the cheaper model — or models — that might be a plastic screen compared to the Galaxy fold 2 ultra-thin glass, or UTG. Weinbach is uncertainty (“and remember, this is a rumor,” he wrote) does not leave room for doubt, but it does suggest that Samsung will stop the experiment with lower-priced models with the $1,380 Galaxy Z Flip.


, 2 screens, 1 with a 120Hz refresh rate

There is little doubt that the Galaxy-wrinkle 2 in the footsteps of the original with two Displays-one on the to start outside, short tasks, such as initiate a call or a response to a quick text, and the larger screen on the inside, not all the heavy lifting of video, multitasking, and more E-Mail-composition. 

The larger the screen is, to follow said, the Galaxy S20 with a 120Hz refresh rate, while the smaller screen is above the Standard 60Hz screen (see below). The faster refresh rate makes scrolling, navigation, and some games run very smooth, but it can also battery life to drink faster. It is likely that the damper is in the 2, the 120-Hz screen-setting is also an option, with the typical 60Hz rate, the default would be as it is on the S20-mobile phones.

Galaxy Fold 2 cameras

The original Galaxy of folds and took his camera cues from the last year, the Galaxy S10 Plus, the important thing is that the fold 2 do the same, drawing from the Galaxy-S20-Plus would be ” camera-array and design. This is the content of a rumor by Max Weinbach, a Twitter leaker and contributors of XDA Developers.

If this is true, one might expect to see:

  • Front cover: a 10-megapixel camera
  • rear: 12 megapixels (wide-angle), 64-megapixels (Tele), 12 megapixel (uw), time-of-flight 

And what of the inner screen? Good Question. The original fold a large thumb-shaped neckline, the two camera lenses and other sensors, and detracted from the overall look, as well as took place on the screen. I would bet that Samsung minimizes the camera on the inner screen, may reduce the size of the room, to a single sensor for selfies and video chats, and with a more minimalist punch hole design.

Weinbach, in its February tweet suggested that the “main” camera could sensor a V-shaped notch or a under screen. 

battery size and battery life

battery life is a sticking point for any phone, but on a hinged device like the original Galaxy-compartment, with power-thirsty-to be screens and a promise that all device in your life, to deliver you. 

If the rumor is that the Galaxy fold 2 could developers in the top of the fold 4,380 mAh battery with 4,500 – or 5,000-mAh battery is quoted, according to a source, the of XDA. You can also expect that Samsung, reverse wireless charging, the Samsung calls power share, and quick charging to align with the Galaxy S20-mobile phones — probably at a rate of 25 watts. 

Galaxy S20 Ultra, for example, supports a faster 45 watt load, but keep in mind that it can often charge a trade-off between how quickly a cell phone-and how much heat it generates, and keeps you as a result. When the door 2 comes to life without the support for the 45-watt quick charging, which is probably why.

screen size, 5G, storage, and other specifications

display consultant Ross young tweeted a long list of specifications at the end of April, surprisingly, with respect to the Display size, resolution and technology. That, combined with other rumors about the Galaxy-tray 2 capacity, 5G-variations and colors (of XDA Developers, SamMobile, ET News, and others), paints a picture, the concept, the artists and the artists can use to sketch, how the Galaxy 2 might look like.

  • main display: 7.59 cm; 2,213×1,689-pixel resolution
  • cover display: 6.23 cm; 2,267×819-pixel-resolution (original-Times the outer screen of 4.6 inches)

Galaxy-drawer 2-Start and release-date 

For the launch of Samsung’s third foldable mobile phone, it makes looking sense to the first two. The Galaxy and Galaxy Z Flip-announced devices, the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy S20, respectively, were wrinkles in addition to rather typical-and is still a premium –. Now it is proposed that the Galaxy tray Samsung announces 2 step-by-step into the spotlight at the same time the Galaxy Note 20. 

It is a logical pattern to this rumor, although the circumstances of the reveal would certainly be different than most. Samsung Galaxy S20 Unpacked event was in the last time, the mobile industry gathered in full prior to the concern over the spread of the coronavirus put an end to dozens of events within and outside of the tech world. 

It is quite possible that Samsung could move two revelations, which say in response to the Corona-Virus outbreak, when factories are forced to in the midst of a wave of new cases, or economic problems of the hem in consumer spending for high-priced goods.


Samsung Galaxy fold 2 could be the Start of an uncertain time.

Galaxy Fold 2 sale price

as for the price? There is no consensus among the leaky yet, but you can bet that a smaller storage configuration that runs on the 4G costs less than the 5G version with more on-board storage space. It Galaxy professional s $1,980 asking price would be surprising to see an extended galaxy 2 coming out in less than the original, albeit with a global recession before, all things are possible.

Trade-in deals, bundles, and promotional gifts are more likely than an immediate reduction of the cost. Although Samsung has announced the prices a few months after launch, at least on its own site (such as the Galaxy S20-price-drops), the brand is generally preferred to bump up the value of its premium products, bundled offers, such as buy-one-get-one-device, or a free set of earphones.

We keep an eye and an ear for new and credible Galaxy Fold 2-rumors. In the meantime, here’s , 2020, eight apps greatly improve your mobile photography and the OnePlus 8 Per phone that will take the Galaxy S20.
