In February 2019, Samsung launched its first folding phone, the Galaxy Fold, released at the end of the year after resolving the famous problems that appeared on its panel. Everything seemed to indicate that in the first months of 2020 we would meet its successor, but the company introduced the Galaxy Z Flip, a different concept with vertical folding.

Now, after many rumors that have changed its design and some of its features, the new foldable phone from the South Korean manufacturer is now official. Its name is Galaxy Z Fold 2 and, although shares many features with the original Galaxy FoldIt contains important news.

The new generation of Samsung folding It’s called Galaxy Z Fold 2 and comes after the company launched two such devices in the market. The brand assures that, to make this new phone, it listened to user feedback on updates and the most requested features.

Like its predecessor, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 lens combines the grip and flexibility of a (folded) smartphone with the power and screen size of a (open) tablet. For this he has two end-to-end Infinity-O displays, almost without frames; the cover screen is 6.2 inches, while the main screen is 7.6 inches, so both cases provide more viewing area than the Galaxy Fold.
