Samsung launched it’s Galaxy Z Fold 2 in the Galaxy Unpacked 2020 Part 2 virtual event yesterday. They have one such event previously as well where the main attraction was the new Note 20 and this time the Z Fold 2 became the showstopper.
The new device from Samsung would be available starting 18th September 2020 and is priced at the 1999 US dollar. Which turned out to be somewhere around Rs. 1,48,300 for the Indian market.
This might sound a very high priced device but these innovative devices do come along with a heavy price tag. The reason being that the company cannot mass produce these innovative test devices and relies on the big bulky selling price for covering R&D cost.
Starting with the build quality, the new Z Fold 2 also comes in the same kind of casing as we’ve seen on the Note 20 devices. It’s sturdy, sleek, and an ultimate attention grabber while placed on a table in between gatherings.
This time Samsung tried to refine its past mistake and the exterior is superbly finished. And unlike the previous time, no visible folded screen marks or loose hinges can be observed.
The device comes in two colors Mystic Black and Mystic Bronze. A third variant that is somewhat special in nature is also available namely Thom Browne Edition. But it will be available for the 25th of September and comes along with a full set of Galaxy Buds Live and Galaxy Watch 3. Prices for this variant is to be revealed later on.
Coming back to what would you get inside the hood of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2? Well! it has a lot to offer.
Starting with the 3 camera setup on the back which consists of a 12-megapixel sensor with an f/1.8 lens along with a 12-megapixel sensor with an f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle lens and a 12-megapixel sensor with an f/2.4 telephoto lens.
Regarding the front camera, it has one on the inside screen and on on the outside screen. They both rock a 10-megapixel sensor each.
It also gains rapport on connectivity options as it hosts 5G, 4G LTE, Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS/ A-GPS, UWB (Ultra Wide Band), and a USB Type-C port under the hood.
The battery might come off as slightly low for some users and its a 4,500mAh battery pack. But it supports fast charging, wireless charging, wireless power share and the optimization from Samsung’s side makes the battery lasts fairly long.
The device is powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ SoC along with 12 GBs of RAM and 256 GB of UFS 3.1 storage.
Now, the juiciest specification that makes this device stands out, its screen. It features a 7.6-inch full-HD+ (1,768×2,208 pixels) foldable, Dynamic AMOLED Infinity-O Display with a 120Hz refresh rate, and 22.5:18 aspect ratio. There is also a 6.2-inch Super AMOLED Infinity Flex Display with 816×2,260 pixels resolution and a 25:9 aspect ratio on the cover.
The device is packed with more features than we can mention and justifies the price point if we consider how great innovation the folding phone screen is.
But not everyone would be able to purchase it and believe us! Samsung knows this. Let’s see what Samsung has for us in their upcoming events as they’re been rocking one event after another recently.
