Foldable smartphones are the expectation. It might not look that way with the modern foldable smartphones we have but earlier or later they are going to replace our normal smartphones. If not follow our regular smartphones they will certainly become as popular as mainstream smartphones. That said, the Galaxy Fold 2 went on sale ever for September this year and it has been trading out in record times almost here it went on sale.
Galaxy Fold 2
Samsung had huge expectations with foldable tech also it surely is paying off. Of course, that told, there’s one thing I don’t like on the current foldable smartphones and it’s the flexible display. You might have seen this video where Zack did a strength test on the foldable display and it hurt out so easily.
He also arranged to scratch it with only his nails. I don’t see the owners of the Galaxy Fold complaining about it but that doesn’t mean it’s a non-issue. It certainly is, and Samsung totally understands that and that’s the reason the Galaxy Fold 2 or the clamshell Samsung phone will have a foldable glass display. It was just recently that we got a look at live images of this phone.
Like the Motorola Razr, the images show a clamshell phone that flips open to reveal a bigger, foldable display. But this isn’t a foldable screen that we’ve seen before. It actually uses glass which will make sure it doesn’t scratch with just your fingernails. Which in turn will make the phone more durable. We heard this rumor a few months ago that Samsung will abandon the plastic polyamide in favor of a bendable glass and it looks like it’s actually happening.
The Galaxy Fold was unveiled in February but it went on sale almost 7 months later in September. But that won’t happen with the Galaxy Fold 2. According to South Korean media, the Galaxy Fold 2 will go on sale even before the Galaxy S11. A few days ago we heard that the Galaxy S11 and the Fold 2 will be launched at the same time on February 11th.
Usually, Samsung takes about two weeks before they start releasing the devices to the public. So that means you’ll be able to get the Galaxy Fold 2 delivered to you in February itself. In fact, the report also mentions that Samsung is planning to put the Galaxy Fold 2 up for sale right after it goes official in South Korea.
This is impressive considering the Moto Razr is still not up for sale, in fact, reports are saying the release of the handset has been delayed due to the rising demand for the phone. So Samsung sees an opportunity here, so they want to grab it by bringing the Fold 2 to retail shelves as soon as possible. Unlike the Moto Razr which retails for $1500, the Fold 2 will cost almost half at just $850 which means you don’t have to spend a fortune to experience the foldable tech.
Of course, that being said, do let me know what do you think about the Fold 2, with the information we have about this phone, are you willing to spend 850 to try this phone out or would you go to a more conventional option like the Galaxy S11? Let me know down in the comments and as always I’ll see you tomorrow…Peace out!
