Latest Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 5G leak details cameras, reveals possible price
The Galaxy Fold 2 features three rear cameras
Leading the way will be a main 12-megapixel shooter that supports optical image stabilization (OIS). That’s going to be coupled with a 64-megapixel telephoto camera and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide-angle alternative, the former of which also supports OIS.
Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 price and announcement date
Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Samsung has not yet suffered any major delays. That means shipments of the Galaxy Fold 2 or Galaxy Z Fold 2 should go ahead as planned in September.
In regards to pricing, Young expects the next-generation foldable to be slightly cheaper than its predecessor as part of an attempt to boost sales. Between $1780 and $1980 is the guideline provided, but the expectation is that it will cost $1,880 – $100 less than the Galaxy Fold.
Expect massively upgraded displays for the high price
For reference, the original Galaxy Fold features a 7.3-inch panel complete with a 2152 x 1536p resolution, 362ppi density, and a standard 60Hz refresh rate.
To ensure the visual package is as good as possible, Samsung is reportedly replacing the controversial corner notch with punch-hole camera technology. The South Korean giant originally wanted to use under-screen camera tech, but engineers determined that it isn’t ready yet.
Like the Galaxy Z Flip, the Galaxy Fold 2 will utilize ultra-thin glass in a bid to better resist scratches and drops. The harder surface this brings to the tablet should enable S Pen support too.
This should make the screen much more usable than the equivalent on the original Galaxy Fold. But to keep costs down, Samsung might be downgrading it from a Super AMOLED panel to an LCD one.
