Flagship smartphone Galaxy Z Fold 2 it will officially go on sale on Samsung’s website on September 18 at a price of $2000.
It’s only $20 more expensive than the first generation Fold, but Device still more expensive than many high-end laptops.
For these additional $20 dollars, the buyer receives from the manufacturer the promise of a “moredurable phone” as well as improved specifications.
Samsung says it’s his best attempt to create a hinge phone after relative mishaps with the original Fold and Flip. The loop was reinforced to make it tighter. Now the smartphone can also be used in a semi-open mode, similar to a laptop, which is useful, for example, to participate in a video call.
As for the specifications, it’s basically the flagship of 2020, although in some respects it’s a little less premium than the S20 and Note 20.
Samsung’s Galaxy Fold 2 has a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED external screen with a resolution of 2208-1768 pixels with HDR10-enabled. The 7.6-inch bending screen has a resolution of 2208-1768 pixels and 120 Hz image upgrades support.
The smartphone is based on the zualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, it received 12GB of LPDDR5x RAM and 256GB of UFS 3.1 flash memory. Samsung’s Galaxy Fold 2 supports a fast charge with a capacity of 25 W.
Many improvements have also affected the software. Samsung still lets you run three separate app windows, and the company has smoothed the transition as it transitions from the external screen to the internal one. Samsung also now gives you more control over the DPI of these apps, and it is working with partners to make popular apps, such as the Office package, work better in the new form factor.
By default, the phone will be available in bronze or black. The Galaxy Fold 2 is now available for pre-order and will be released on September 18. It will be available, in particular, on the Samsung.com website.
However, he added that the device may get a somewhat unexpected form factor.
According to John Prosser, the phone is developed without a flexible screen, and has a”tissue hinge” with two separate displays. The loop will protect against debris to make the device more durable than current folding smartphones.
At the same time, the insider stressed separately that the screen on the device does not bend and does not fold. The phone’s prototype is based on the iPhone 11 with stainless steel loops.
