Samsung announced a new foldable smartphone Galaxy Z Fold2 in early August during the presentation of Unpacked, and now officially presented the new product. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 is the third generation of Samsung’s flexible devices.
The front 6.2-inch Infinity-O display provides an easy-to-use experience so the user can check emails, watch directions or browse content without having to turn the device around every time. At the same time, the 7.6-inch main screen with reduced bezels and a front camera without a cutout allows you to immerse yourself in content, and the adapted 120Hz refresh rate ensures smooth scrolling and gameplay. The Galaxy Z Fold2 also features the best dynamic sound available on Galaxy devices with dual speakers.
The main screen is made of Samsung ultra-thin glass, which makes the display feel better. Its design is based on a hidden hinge that fits into the body of the device using a cam-shaped hinge mechanism and allows the smartphone to be positioned at any angle to provide new features of Flex mode. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 also uses the brush cleaning technology first introduced on the Galaxy Z Flip. It acts in the gap between the body and the hinge to repel dust and small particles.
The new smartphone combines Flex mode and App Continuity for greater usability by eliminating the clear distinction between front and home screens. This flexibility allows you to create or view content the way the user likes – collapsed and expanded.
With Flex mode, it’s easier to shoot and view content in real time. In Capture View, you no longer need to exit the camera application. The user can preview the photo or video they just took, or see up to the last five shots in the lower half of the main screen, while a preview of the next shot is available in the upper half. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 can also record hands-free videos and keep the subject in focus even if it is moving. It can be used to take selfies with the main cameras on the back, while the front screen will act as a viewfinder. Thanks to the functions of Pro Video mode, Single Take, Bright Night and Night Mode, the smartphone will help you take high quality pictures.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 features a Snapdragon 865+ processor, 12GB LPDDR5 RAM, 256GB on-board storage and 4,500mAh battery, and supports 5G connectivity. Galaxy Z Fold2 users can access the Galaxy Premier Service and Samsung Care +, which provides one-time protection against accidental damage to the display for one year from the date of purchase.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold2 will be available in Mystic Black and Mystic Bronze colors in over 40 markets, including the US and South Korea. The model costs $ 1999.99 in the US. In Ukraine, pre-orders will be available from September 10, 2020. The start of sales in Ukraine is expected from September 25, 2020.
