Samsung entered the foldable smartphone market with Galaxy Fold last year. It was one of the most expensive smartphones out there which means only a few could afford it. It went on to release Galaxy Z Flip which was relatively cheaper but only because it packed mid-range specifications. It is now said to be working on making the flagship device successor affordable.
As per the new SamMobile report, Samsung is set to unveil Galaxy Fold 2 with a 256GB storage option. This particular variant is reported to bear model number SM-F916 and another one with 512GB storage will have SM-F91x model number. The original Galaxy Fold was released in a single 512GB storage which made it pretty expensive.
The 256GB model will be the base model which will surely be cheaper than the 512GB option. It will be a good option for those who cannot afford the high-end configuration but still want to own a foldable smartphone. This will likely attract more buyers which also happened with the Galaxy Z Flip that helped it become popular.
The Galaxy Fold 2 is already rumored to sport a 7.7-inch display that will bigger than predecessor. It is further expected to be an Infinity-O display panel which means a punch-hole will be there for housing the front camera. There are also rumors that the next-gen foldable phone will have an in-display fingerprint scanner.
