Latest Galaxy Fold 2 leak is the best news we’ve heard yet
We’ve been hearing murmurs about the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 for months now, with everything from the code-name to screen sizes apparently leaking. But in possibly the biggest leak so far about Samsung’s 3rd foldable device, we get to know almost everything about the handset and there’s a lot of good news.
First off, this information comes from the CEO of Display Supply Chain Consultants who says that the Galaxy Fold 2 will have a 120Hz display just like the Galaxy S20 series. The foldable panel will have a 7.59-inch display with a resolution of 2213 by 1689. There were rumors that Samsung will use the under-display camera technology on the Fold 2 but it turns out the tech isn’t ready yet.
Samsung will instead use a punch-hole cut out just like the Galaxy S20 series. And it’s safe to assume it would be at the corner and not at the center. Another good news is the Fold 2 will have the S-Pen support. There was a report a few days ago that S-Pen didn’t make the cut on the Fold 2, it was mentioned that Samsung wanted to make the handset lighter than the original fold but looks like that wasn’t true. The S-Pen support is indeed included and that’s great news for the Note fans. I saw a lot of Galaxy Note users mentioning that they would consider buying the Galaxy Fold if there is support for the S-Pen.
So surely this is going to attract a lot of Note fans as well as it will give Samsung a distinct edge over its competitors because companies like Huawei, Motorola or anyone who makes foldable handset can’t have the S-Pen that will push the foldable phone-tablet formula to new heights.
Now, according to Ross, the Fold 2 will have an Ultra-thin Glass to support the S-Pen. Now as seen on the Galaxy Z Flip, the ultra-thin glass has a plastic layer on top keep it all together. But as a result, even after using the Ultra-thin glass, it was easy to make scratches with a pointy object because the outermost layer was plastic. So I hope the plastic layer on top of the Ultra-thin glass on the Fold 2 is resilient enough to sustain pressure from pointy objects such as the S-Pen or maybe let’s hope Samsung would have made an all-new stylus to work on the Fold 2.I guess We’ll know soon enough.
Now coming to the front, it will have a 6.23″ display which considerably bigger than the 4.6″ of the original Galaxy Fold. It will have a resolution of 2267 by 819 and the good news is it won’t have a notch but instead will have a punch-hole camera cutout just like the Galaxy S20. The smaller front display was one of the biggest complaints users had with the original fold so good to learn that Samsung is changing that with the Fold 2.
Now, unlike the inner display which has 120Hz refresh rate, the outer display is 60Hz which sucks to be honest because you’re surely going to notice the difference. The 120Hz display will spoil you for sure and the outer 60Hz display will feel like crap. Ross tweeted that he will give us more information about the camera, launch date and most importantly the price next week.
According to previous information, we learned that the Fold 2 will be slightly less expensive than the original Fold that’s because there will also be a 256GB storage variant this instead of just 512GB on the original Fold. In any case, I’ll keep you informed whenever Ross decides to share new information on the Fold 2 and as always I’ll see you tomorrow…Peace out! From Blogger Mithu.
