The new Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 will be a groundbreaking launch without any doubt because the company is pushing innovation at all corners possible. The good news is that they are doing so even better this time if this concept video render is to be believed as the second generation Fold will be much more practical, easy to use and long-lasting.
Samsung had its fair share of issues when the Galaxy Fold beta edition was launched and YouTube reviewers came across a couple of issues. The company decided to recall their phones to make some alterations to the foldable display but all these hiccups didn’t deter them from going forward with an official launch.
Despite being priced at $2,000 and being one of the most expensive phones people could buy, it still made a big impact on the market. Instead of trying to fix all the errors in the original model, Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 aims to be completely different and the renders look really promising.
Punch Hole Camera and Clamshell Design
The major design change comes in the form of the clamshell form factor which is similar to how Motorola Razr has handled the foldable phone concept. Instead of flipping your phone open and close like a book, you have to take the nostalgic route to flip it up and down to get the full-screen size.
Samsung seems to have removed the large, intrusive notch on top and opted for a clean punch-hole camera in the middle. It is expected to be the norm in all their phones as the center placement is found in Galaxy Note 10 as well as the recently launched Galaxy S10 Lite and Note 10 Lite.
There was a slight gap between the display and the hinge in the first generation Fold. The adoption of Clamshell design contributes to completely removing it so as to provide an edge to edge display. The curve-friendly plastic acts as the backbone of the Fold 2 while the designers have also reworked the rear camera to make it look sleek and aesthetically pleasing.
Based on the leaks, the display will be 6.7-inches packed to the brim with the most powerful flagship processor combined with whopping amounts of RAM and storage space to justify the premium price tag. It is also being said that Fold 2 is not the official name of the phone which we can confirm only when the launch event takes place. The Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to be launched at the Unpacked Event in the month of February 2020.
