You must have read about Samsung’s plans of launching another foldable smartphone, a true successor to the Samsung Galaxy Fold. The new device likely to be launched later this year is likely to have the same form factor as the first foldable phone, but with improved hardware. Now a new set of rumors says the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 or whatever model name Samsung decides to give it, will come with the S Pen. In addition, there is a prediction that the camera setup on this device will be the same as the recently launched Samsung Galaxy S20+.
Marked Improvements Over the Galaxy Fold is Certain
Most commentators agree on one thing; the next iteration of the Samsung Galaxy Fold will bring in massive improvements over the predecessor. Adding the S Pen will certainly enhance its image but more importantly, the hinges are likely to be improved so that opening and closing of the device is smoother. Equally critical will be the change to the Ultra-Thin Glass display screen from the plastic film that the Samsung Galaxy Fold has.
Camera Setup To be Different
Again, you might have come across the report claiming that the new foldable device will have an under-display camera in the front for selfies. If that happens, it will be a first for any smartphone. Now, the latest rumors claim the rear camera setup too will be identical to the Samsung Galaxy S20+. To recall the camera setup in the Galaxy S20+, it has the 64MP telephoto lens with 2x 12MP cameras, one primary and the other with the wide-angle lens. The fourth sensor in the setup will be the Time of Flight (ToF) camera.
It is claimed this will be the same arrangement to be adopted for the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 as well. There are others who have floated the idea that Samsung may bring the higher configuration seen on the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra!
These are still early days and you may keep hearing more on this third foldable smartphone model from the South Korean company. The second one, the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip was just launched last week.

Meanwhile, there is a report of a $2,480 special Galaxy Z Flip Thom Browne Edition being launched for a few markets, besides the USA.
