Today we’ve got some shocking news about the Samsung Galaxy fold 2 as well as
confirmation of its key specifications and that’s coming up right after this we’ve got plenty more news on the Samsung Galaxy fold 2 we’ve got new leaked renders at key spec details and unfortunately some shocking news that may upset Samsung fans ,the first news of the day is sadly about the s-pen we had hope early on from Ross Young who advised to everyone that the Galaxy fold 2 what would be coming with an S Pen but that’s no longer the case the elec issued a report going into detail about why the galaxy fold 2 is not gonna come with an S Pen they report that the cover glass on the screen has been made thinner to accommodate for the folding but this in turn makes it less durable so it’s not suitable for a stylus Samsung are reportedly developing a cover glass suitable for folding and for using an S Pen but unfortunately it’s not gonna be present in the Galaxy fold 2 interestingly enough ross younger quoted this article in he stated called this one sorry S Pen fans well knew you didn’t call it Ross and you’re actually the one to feel the S Pen rumors to begin with well he’s come out with plenty of display leaks recently we haven’t really had the chance to verify any of them yet and I hadn’t heard of him till recently.
So I just advised that then going forward we take his leaks with a pinch of salt until he has proved his credibility but next up we’ve got a share from credible leaker ice universe who shared the galaxy fold 2 renders from blossom see why the renders are for outside only but they show us a great looking device we can see a rectangular camera module on the back with four cameras and an LED flash on the back of the fold 2 when it comes to the front cover we’ve got a full screen display with a punch hole selfie camera the renders are based on leaked can information and given the fact that ice universe has shared it, it means that it must be somewhat accurate they also fall in line with Ben Gaskins renders who gives us a look at the front as well as the larger internal display we can see from Ben’s renders that we’ve got a punch or selfie camera in the top right of the larger display and of course the only issue with Ben’s renders is of course the s-pen but these renders that were based on earlier leaks when the s-pen was reported to be there so the leaks should hopefully be right just with no s-pen but next up we’ve got an infographic that was leaked by et News a South Korean publication and they’re advising the key specs of the Galaxy fold 2 the infographic advises that the Galaxy fold 2 is gonna come with a seven point seven inch display when unfolded and it’s gonna be an LT PS 120 Hertz display.
It also advises that the internal screen is gonna have a punch hole selfie camera and a resolution of 1689 by 22:13 which gives us an aspect ratio of eleven point eight by nine this may be bad news for those hoping for a sixteen by nine device but to be clear this infographic has appeared online and its credibility remains unconfirmed it also shows us that this year Samsung are planning manufacturing 300,000 units of the Galaxy fold 2 and when it comes to pricing we may have some good news apparently the galaxy fold 2 is expected to be priced $100 less than the predecessor and this is of course to boost sales so we can expect a launch price of one thousand eight hundred and eighty dollars now this is by no means cheap and it’s still a very luxury product with an even more luxury price tag but it is of course a step in the right direction now again this pricing leak does come from Ross Young.
So as I stated earlier we don’t know his track record yet, but with the launch coming up in August it’s not long until we can confirm for anyone interested though it will be running through all of the details for the Samsung Galaxy fold 2 one of the largest rumors currently floating around the web is that the Galaxy fold 2 is gonna be the first device from Samsung to have an in display selfie camera well this would actually make sense given that it is a luxury device that with a very high price tag it appears it’s just not gonna happen credible Lika ice universe has already advised on Twitter that something is considering this technology for debut in the s-21 he advises that Samsung are currently evaluating its feasibility for the s21 so there’s just no way it’s gonna be ready in time for the Galaxy fold 2 the outer design of the galaxy fold 2 is also reported to be very similar to its predecessor but with a larger external display although the whole industry has been experiencing delays due to the current outbreak we’re still expecting mass production to begin mid-may and commercial units should be ready by June many are speculating that the Samsung Galaxy fold 2 is going to be releasing alongside the note 20 in August so it’s not too much longer until we find out we’ve had plenty of other concepts for the device from people such as on leaks in concept creator and they all look incredible the future of folding phones is looking very promising and the galaxy fold 2 is going to be in a similar form factor is the original fold.
But it’s gonna be even more premium a patent was previously filed by Samsung and it reveals a foldable device with a slightly different form factor than the original fold it’s more of a galaxy tablet with a folding form factor with this design we get a much larger display and a better aspect ratio for both media and gaming the pattern also reveals a full-screen display when unfolded so this is where the rumours of the in display camera originally came from of course while in display cameras do seem very unlikely at this time it’s not impossible and nothing’s been confirmed just yet the early leaks came from a South Korean publication who advised the whole design of the galaxy fold 2 what was aimed at having a tablet but with portability its reportedly gonna be designed to fit comfortably in pockets but still provide a large enough display the galaxy fold 2 can supposedly be used in the form of a mini laptop by resting the bottom on the surface and folding up the top we then have a display on top with a keyboard on the bottom previous reports that were also stating that Samsung was switching to using ultra thin glass instead of that the transparent polymide were used to and this glass was said to be capable of using spen now this is where the confusion originally came from as these reports were published prior to the launch of the Zed flip.
So we had less information about ultra-thin glass we now know that in its current form it’s not able to support an S Pen so I advise it to disregard these rumors when it comes to the hardware in the specification that we will cause we’ll get the 512 gigs of internal storage and this will of course at buf s3 we expect this to be coupled up with 16 gigs of ram and it’s of course going to use the new snapdragon 865 will likely get some decent cameras but media is gonna be the main target audience rather than photography a device that folds out into a large tablet is great for watching media gaming or even doing some editing but having a large device is not the best choice for a portable camera the pattern doesn’t confirm that this is the galaxy fold 2 or that this is ever gonna make it to market but it does seem a very sensible design that could take off if it does we know that despite their initial issues Samsung of continuing to push their foldable devices we’ve already had the launch of the new W 20 as well as the Samsung galaxys z flip with each release they’re improving the issues they face and they’re becoming much more durable products unfortunately being a luxury product it also means it is gonna come with a luxury price tag although the price of the new galaxy fold 2 is still very much unknown with the launch expected to be July or August it’s not going to be long until we do get some information.
