Samsung finally announced the Galaxy Z Fold 2 on the Unpacked Part 2 event held online today. We got a glimpse of the same a few days back in Unpacked Part 1 alongside Note 20 series. As of now, the foldable phone is already up for pre-orders.
Galaxy Z Fold 2 – Specifications.
The Z Fold 2 comes with the 7.6-inch Super AMOLED display with an 120Hz of Adaptive Refresh rate. Inside, you will get a Snapdragon 865+ SoC, 12GB RAM, and 256GB/512GB UFS 3.1 storage. The cover display is a massive 6.2-inch diagnolly, limited to 60Hz.
For security, the power button is the fingerprint scanner. Also, we will see stereo speakers, WiFi 6, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, and USB Type-C, but no headphone jack. The battery on the Z Fold 2 is a not-so-massive 4,500mAh battery with support for 25W fast charging.
The camera this time is a triple camera module, which looks just like what we have seen on Note 20 series. However, the specs are totally different from the Note series.
The main camera is a 12MP wide-angle camera with aperture of f/1.8, along with 83° FOV, Super Speed Dual Pixel Autofocus, and OIS. Then comes the 12MP ultra-wide camera with a f/2.2 aperture and 123° field of view. The third camera is a telephoto camera with 12MP sensor, 45° FOV, OIS and PDAF. The camera setup is capable of recording HDR10+ videos with 2X optical and 10X digital zoom.
There are two front cameras and are identically 10MP sensor with an aperture f/2.2 and 80° FOV. The one camera is embedded into the Infinity-O panel, whereas the other one resides beneath the cover display. For SIM cards, you have one physical SIM slot and one eSIM.
