Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 vs Galaxy Fold hinge design and display sizes
In contrast, the OG Fold has a puny 4.6" HD display on the outside which is only good for answering a call or checking the weather. The Galaxy Z Fold 2, however, with just a few of its new features, rights all the OG Fold's wrongs, and continues to become the best foldable phone in the process, when it comes to specs and usability.
Need a larger screen for a long reading session, working on docs side by side, playing games, or simply watching videos? Just then you can pop open the screen, like the way it already is on the Mate Xs foldable phone.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 is the first foldable phone with 120Hz dynamic refresh rate display
We recently sat down for an interview with Pixelworks, the folks that are behind some of the most remarkable advancements in mobile display technology of late - namely dynamic refresh and video frame rates, as well as individual post-production screen calibration. When we asked them will those come to foldable phones, here's their answer:
PhoneArena: Will dynamic 120Hz, MEMC and the other unique features be possible with foldable displays like on the Galaxy Fold or the Huawei Mate Xs, too?
Sr. Director Vikas Dhurka: From a capability point of view, the technologies that we provide are agnostic to the screen size and the mechanical design of the display. With the Pixelworks processor, any display could have a visual experience that is far superior than anything else that's out there.
There you had it, nothing prevents manufacturers from employing high refresh rate screens on foldables, and the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is actually the first bendy device to have 120Hz refresh rate display. It may still not be at the full resolution, like what others are offering, but it will bring smoother scrolling, animations, and more pleasant reading and gaming sessions to your Galaxy Z Fold 2.
