Samsung Introduces New Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G

Samsung has unveiled its latest foldable device – the Galaxy Z Fold 2 5G – at its annual Unpacked 2020 event.
The smartphone is similar to the Galaxy Z Flip and Z Flip 5G which were released earlier this year but The Verge reports that this “marks Samsung’s first major refresh for its flagship foldable phone”.

“After releasing two foldable devices and listening to user feedback on the most requested upgrades and new features, Samsung unveils the Galaxy Z Fold 2 with meaningful innovations that offer users enhanced refinements and unique foldable user experiences,” says the tech company.

“Galaxy Z Fold 2 combines the portability and flexibility of a smartphone with the power and screen size of a tablet for ultimate productivity.”

The most notable improvement is the Galaxy Z Fold 2’s 6.2-inch screen covering the front of the device. It is powered by Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 865 Plus processor and could come in mystic black, bronze or a limited edition Thom Browne edition.

“For users who seek a unique premium design, Samsung is again partnering with iconic New York fashion house Thom Browne to deliver a limited Galaxy Z Fold 2 Thom Browne Edition,” says Samsung.

“With Galaxy Z Fold 2, Samsung will continue to inspire all-new possibilities for the entire foldable category.”
