After launching Galaxy Fold last year, the South Korean smartphone company is gearing up to launch its successor that is the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 on September 1. The company has announced its next foldable phone earlier this month at the Unpacked 2020 but now it will be hosting Unpacked Part 2 virtual event to officially launch the device. Ahead of the launch out of the blue the company accidentally shared the pricing of Galaxy Z Fold 2 online.
At the Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event the company introduced Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 but it did now reveal the price of the device. But before it could officially launch the device it by mistake let the price of the Tablet slip on its UK website. The price of the Fold 2 has been set at £1,799 that translates to Rs 1,75,400 which is more expensive than its predecessor Galaxy Fold. Later on, the pricing was removed after the price was spotted by some of the journalists. And without any further delay, one of the publishers also took a screenshot.
Though this might also be a publicity stunt as in the past many of the brands have done this to promote its product. While the official pricing will be revealed on Tuesday that is September 1. The company will be hosting a formal launch event for its upcoming device where it is likely to share the price officially. The event will start at 10 am ET (7.30 pm IST).
Meanwhile, the foldable phone is available for reservations in the US and will be offered in Mystic Black and Mystic Bronze colours. The company has also collaborated with the New York fashion house Thom Browne to make available the limited Galaxy Z Fold 2 Thom Browne Edition.
Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 specifications
The Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 will be featuring a 7.6-inch Infinity-O Display that is the main screen similarly the cover screen is a 6.2-inch Infinity-O Display. That is an upgrade over its predecessor. The Samsung Galaxy Fold has a 7.3-inch primary display and a 4.6-inch cover display.
The company claims that the upcoming model brings the most unconventional flexible display. For this, the company has used Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG) which comes on the Z Flip protection over a plastic covering addressing the issue which made the company delay the shipment of its first-generation Galaxy Fold model.
The Galaxy Z Fold 2 will be carrying a 120Hz refresh rate panel for a smoother experience than Fold which offers a standard 60Hz refresh rate.
While the hinges have been re-engineered and are similar to the Z Flip which has a CAM Mechanism allowing it to open it up at multiple angles which is not present on the existing model.
The camera department has been taken care of by a triple camera setup at the back whereas the displays also include sensors for taking selfies. The camera details are yet to be known.
In addition to this, it is backed up by a 4,500mAh Dual Intelligent Battery. While the foldable is further supported by Dolby Atmos and 5G.
