Samsung redesigns its foldable phone
Yesterday the first official photos of the phone were leaked, which left us wondering if this model was going to be announced today. Samsung has left us with this presentation of the Galaxy Z Fold 2, a phone that combines the handling and flexibility of a smartphone, with the power and screen size of tablets. Therefore, it is presented as an ideal device for productivity, but giving a luxurious experience at all times.
The phone features two end-to-end Infinity-O displays, with hardly any frames. The screen on the phone cover is 6.2-inches in size, while the main screen is 7.6-inches. Two large panels, comfortable to use and that give us many possibilities.
In addition, they are larger than those of the previous generation of the phone, taking better advantage of the surface thanks to the absence of frames, betting on a small perforation instead.
For the cameras, it has opted for three rear cameras for the Galaxy Z Fold 2. The main sensor is 64MP, along with a 12MP telephoto lens, a 16MP wide angle and two front cameras. One of these front cameras is inserted on the outside panel, and the other is on the inside panel. Both cameras are the same, 10MP.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is a phone that promises to deliver on performance. It comes with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865+ as its processor, so we are going to have 5G connectivity in it. The battery has a capacity of 4,356mAh, which will give us a good autonomy, and it also has support for fast charging of 15W, wireless charging of 15W and reverse wireless charging of 9W. The fingerprint reader is located on one of its sides, thus following in the footsteps of last year’s Fold.
