Samsung on Wednesday began uncovering the preliminary details for its next-gen premium foldable smartphone, the Galaxy Z Fold 2.
With pre-orders set to kick off on September 1, there’s still plenty of features to be uncovered. However, Samsung does give us a sense of what to expect.
For starters, both screens have been made larger as compared to its predecessor. The exterior display is 6.2-inches while the flexible interior one has been bumped up to 7.6-inches.

- Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series announced for August 21
Similar to its Galaxy Z Flip, Samsung will employ its Ultra Thin Glass in the Galaxy Z Fold 2. This will help keep the screen more safely protected.
Samsung has also re-engineered the hinge, using more than 60 precision parts all while retaining a similar appearance.
Other specifications include punch hole cameras in both displays and a 4,500mAh battery. The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 will be sold in Mystic Black and Mystic Bronze colors. A limited run Thom Browne Edition will also be sold.
Pricing and exact availability is unclear, but we do know that Verizon and T-Mobile have already pledged to carry the phone. Look for the full picture to be revealed as we approach the September 1 pre-order date.
