According to a fresh report from a Korean publication DDaily (via SamMobile) the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 will cost 2398,000 won (KRW 2.398 million), the same as the original Samsung Galaxy Fold. The price translates to $2007, but likely the same $1980 in the USA. The report also comments on the availability, according to which it is expected to hit the shelves on September 18th.
UPDATE (July 30th, 2020):
The Galaxy Z Flip 2 has surfaced in a new leak featuring high-quality renders. It shows the foldable phone in Mystic Black and Mystic Bronze color options. The design is similar to what we have seen in the recent past.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 appears to have leaked for the first time ever over the internet. The image is leaked on Naver (via Max Weinbach) and it shows the device in its unfolded state. Evident enough the phone retains the same form factor where it unfolds like an open book. The leaked image shows the foldable phone has just been switched on and the name appears Galaxy Z Fold 2, secured by Knox and Powered by Android.
Upon increase the brightness of your device, you would notice there is a hole-punch on the internal display, precisely on the top of the right screen. This reflects whatever the past rumors have suggested could be true. Other things can’t be gleaned from the leaked image as there is so much glare on the screen due to the logo. You may want to wait further in order to get more details ahead of the launch.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is said to be coming with larger displays on both the inside and outside, with an inner display featuring the 120Hz refresh rate as well. It may also carry better camera configurations. The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is said to be coming with one more improvement and that is about its cover display. It’s been found that the 6.23-inch cover display of the Galaxy Fold 2 will act as a viewfinder for the rear camera when the device is unfolded. This is something that the original Galaxy Fold does not offer.
The Galaxy Unpacked event is scheduled to happen on August 5 and Samsung has already given several clues on what new products it will bring to the stage. Galaxy Z Fold 2 is also going to launch on the same day and we are not too far to witness that day.
