Key features and specs
To recap, Samsung has greatly improved the original Galaxy Fold design and build, including the new Hideaway Hinge with CAM mechanism and sweeper technology adopted from the Galaxy Z Flip. It now inherits Flex mode, first seen on the Galaxy Z Flip, able to stand on its own from 75 to 115 degrees.
Check out the review of the Galaxy Z Flip here:
Under the hood, the device packs the screaming fast Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus processor paired with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage (512GB in select markets).
The inbuilt battery has been uprated to 4,500mAh, which fast charges via USB-C, supporting fast wireless charging and reverse wireless charging.
Samsung has also deeply enhanced the Galaxy Z Fold2’s software to better take advantage of its unique form factor. One of its strengths is seamless transitioning from the Cover to the Main Screen, and vice versa.
The company has also worked closely with Microsoft and Google to offer seamless, optimised app interactions and multitasking for enhanced productivity.
In the optics department, the phone comes with a triple-camera setup on the rear consisting of a 12MP f/1.8 main shooter with OIS and Dual Pixel AF, 12MP f/2.2 ultra-wide-angle camera, and a 12MP f/2.4 telephoto with OIS. The camera system offers 2x optical zoom, up to 10x digital zoom, HDR10+ recording and tracking AF.
A 10MP f/2.2 selfie camera is housed on the Main Screen while an identical unit is integrated on the over.
Speaking of which, the front Cover screen is now bigger and notchless.
The 5G enabled device (NSA/SA/Sub6/mmWave) features a single nano-SIM slot complemented with eSIM.
