Samsung Galaxy Fold 2
After the launch of Samsungs Galaxy fold back in 2019, it was not too impressive in the market and also was claimed expensive. So, this year Samsung has planned to introduce its second foldable smartphones in the market “Samsung Galaxy Fold 2”. As seen in the teaser video Galaxy fold 2 is going to be a vertical screen foldable phone. In the market, there are also rumors that Samsung’s galaxy fold 2 may also be named as Galaxy Flip Z.
Galaxy fold 2 will have a 6.67-inch dynamic OLED display and is using ultra-thin foldable glass display instead of using plastic, unlike previous phones. So, this phone is going to be more scratch resistance, more durable and also solve the problem of the crease on the screen. It has a bezzled screen and a punch-hole camera in the middle of the screen. On the back part, the phone has a dual-camera and a small screen so that information on the phone can be displayed on that screen. It is also said that the phone may cost less than 1000$.
Teaser video of Fold 2 has not revealed much about the phone, we can hope much more exciting features in galaxy fold 2 this year.
