Samsung has officially taken the wraps off its next foldable, the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G.
“Our journey towards the next generation of mobile devices is full of originality and innovation,” said Dr. TM Roh, President and Head of Mobile Communications Business, Samsung Electronics. “With the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, we closely listened to user feedback to ensure we were bringing meaningful improvements to the hardware, while also developing new innovations to enhance the user experience. Further strengthened by our industry-leading partnerships with Google and Microsoft, we’re reshaping and redefining the possibilities of the mobile device experience.”
The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G offers a premium design that should make it feel more durable in day-to-day use.
On the front, you have a 6.2-inch Infinity-O Cover Screen, compared to the original Fold’s 4.6-inch. When unfolded, you’ll find a 7.6-inch Main Screen with minimal bezels, a notch-less front-camera and a 120Hz refresh rate.
Samsung says they designed a Hideaway Hinge to seamlessly fit into the device’s body and the CAM mechanism that enables the free-standing capabilities.
Just like the Galaxy Z Flip, the Fold2 offers Flex Viewing to put the phone at different angles to better multitask.
In terms of cameras, the device has a 10MP on the front. For the rear, there are three cameras, a 12MP Ultra Wide, a 12MP Wide-Angle and 12MP Telephoto with 2X optical zoom and 10x digital zoom.
Powering the Fold2 will be the Snapdragon 865 Plus processor with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. The battery is 4,500 mAh with 25W wired fast charging, 11W wireless charging, and reverse wireless charging support.
The Galaxy Z Fold2 5G comes in two colours, Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black.
The phone is launching on September 18th for $2,779 CAD and will be available form Samsung.ca, Samsung Experience Stores and Bell.
If you purchase the device from Samsung’s website, you’ll have the option to customize the Hideaway Hinge colour. Colour choices include Metallic Silver, Metallic Gold, Metallic Red and Metallic Blue.
