Samsung launched its Galaxy Z Fold 2 on August 5, 2020, but it is still not officially released. It is expected to get released in the first week of September. The COVID-19 pandemic is the cause that delayed the official release date on the market.

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 Review

Design

Like Samsung Galaxy Z Flip, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 can stay open at multiple angles. Samsung claims that the Galaxy Fold 2’s hinge is more resilient. It uses fibers underneath the hinge to sweep away debris and dust that gets into the device.

The Galaxy Fold 2 was introduced with the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra in Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black color. The original Galaxy Fold had a plastic screen, and The Galaxy Fold 2 incorporates a layer of ultra-thin glass, making the Fold 2 more enjoyable to use, and the screen is more durable.

Display

When unfolded, Galaxy Z Fold 2 has 7.6 inches display with another punch-hole selfie snapper on the device’s right. The interior screen has a 120Hz refresh rate.

When folded, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 has a 6.2 inches screen on the front with a punch-hole cutout in the top center for a selfie camera. Unlike the original Fold, which had a broad chin and bezel, the Fold 2 has a full-screen display this time. The cover display has a 60Hz refresh rate.

Camera

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 embeds three 12MP lenses on the back: one wide-angle at f/1.8 aperture, one ultra-wide-angle at 2.2 aperture, and one telephoto with 2.4 aperture.

On both interior and cover screen, there is the same 10MP punch-hole cut-out selfie camera.

But the Galaxy Fold 2 lacks the Note 20 Ultra’s 108MP primary camera. You won’t take Space Zoom shots with 50x or 100x power, and there is no 5x optical zoom lens. The iPhone 11 Pro features a similar 12MP camera configuration to the new Fold 2 and still takes the fantastic shots.

Performance

Samsung Galaxy Z fold 2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 865+ (7nm+). The Snapdragon Plus variant is the latest flagship processor from Qualcomm. And it comes with a higher clocked Prime core than the Snapdragon 865 used in the Samsung Galaxy S20 series.

Battery

Compared to the first Fold, Samsung has squeezed a little more battery capacity on the Fold 2. The Fold 2 has a 4500 mAh battery with 25W fast charging, 11W fast wireless charging, and 9W reverse wireless charging.

But we wanted the bigger battery than this for Fold 2 because the display is more extensive this time, and it consumes more power.

The Galaxy Z Fold 2 is a much better phone than the first generation Galaxy Fold. The Fold 2 deserves the flagship standard. Though Fold 2 does not have some useful features that are in Galaxy Note 20 Ultra, it is best in its way.
