Samsung has held a separate conference dedicated to its upcoming foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
Samsung’s third foldable smartphone is available for preorder and it costs more than any other handset the manufacturer has launched in the latest 12 months.
Unlike the previous generations, the phone has larger screens and a smaller hinge, which enables it to be completely closed when folded. The phone will integrate a 6.23-inch SUPER AMOLED with 2,260 x 816 pixels and a 25:9 aspect ratio.
Its Infinity-O display would integrate a 10MP selfie camera, also having a 60Hz refresh rate and HDR10+ support, while the inner display would consist of a 7.6-inch Dynamic AMOLED 2x display with a dynamic 120Hz refresh rate and 2208 x 1768 pixels resolution.
On the side of the foldable phone, we’ll find the fingerprint scanner, which packs a 4,500 mAh battery which supports 25W fast-charging, 11W wireless charging, as well as reverse wireless.
Most importantly, the new foldable phone will use Samsung’s Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG), the same used on the Z Flip folding phone which is much more resilient.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 will cost $1,999.99 in the US, with preorders already available and shipping on September 18th.
