Samsung’s first-ever foldable device, Galaxy Fold isn’t out yet and there are reports surfacing on the 2nd-gen Galaxy Fold already. In fact, if the latest report from a South Korean media publication is to be believed, the timeframe of the Galaxy Fold 2 is even there. According to The Elec report, this second-gen Galaxy Fold will release in early next year and launch in later this year.
The report also sheds light on two key characteristics of this foldable device in question. The second foldable smartphone from Samsung is said to feature an 8-inch display and it will support S Pen as well. Seems like, Samsung has heard the wishes of some users who wanted to have an S Pen with the first foldable device. The report, however, doesn’t mention the size of the outer cover display. For comparison, the current unavailable Galaxy Fold has a 7.3-inch panel with 4.6-inch outer cover display. So, the upcoming foldable device from Samsung may have a larger cover display, this way.
The report doesn’t mention anything else, but we don’t believe to see the second Samsung foldable smartphone getting launched this year, considering the company’s first-ever foldable device isn’t available yet and there is no speculation on its release either. The Galaxy Fold is, indeed, expected to launch between August-September but it seems nearly impossible to see the second device from this newer category too early.
Samsung hasn’t yet revealed the exact availability date for its Galaxy Fold device. But we hope to see it soon as VP of Samsung Display said: "it’s ready to hit the market." So stay tuned and look for more information to join in.
