Samsung, one of the leading mobile phone brands across the world, has absolutely decided to make the year 2020 something for all to look out for, which is evident from the wide range of new mobile phones and accessories that it has launched this year. Adding to this list is the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2, a premium and innovative foldable phone.
An initial look at the latest offering from Samsung shows how the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is a result of the company’s spending more time to identify and fix the flaws that were evident in original foldable phones, instead of focusing of finding out features that will add to the wow factor of the Galaxy Z Fold 2. The effort put in by Samsung to design the new model properly and take it to the customers is an example of how the company is actually keen on making the foldable phones work and become a huge success.
Speaking about the features, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 has a much better display screen. Earlier, the foldable phones had a tiny screen measuring only 4.6 inches, making it highly uncomfortable to be used as a normal smartphone. It also had a large notch that occupied the entire corner space of the display. Along with these, the“jelly-scrolling” effect was not at all worth seeing in an expensive phone like this.
In fact, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 is expected to be a much better phone. The external screen is a full-sized panel measuring 6.2-inches. It is, though, a little bit narrow, therefore realizing that diagonal measurement may not be the ideal way to find out what it feels to use the phone. The notches on the main display have been replaced with a cutout shaped like Infinity-O for the selfie camera. In addition, the display technology has been greatly enhanced to be able to offer nearly refresh rates of 120Hz.
Unlike the earlier models, the display screen of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is no longer a fragile sheet of plastic that can be broken easily. Rather it is an ultra-thin glass technology with which the Galaxy Z Flip was debuted in the beginning of this year. This glass screen assures a greater degree of durability. Unlike the first model, the bezels found around the display is more slimmer than before, thus giving a the display pane a new look. The edges of the panel are also now not excessively exposed.
Since it is a foldable phone, the hinges play a key role. These have been redesigned in the Galaxy Z Fold 2 At wider angles, the hinges remain in place, which enables propping up the phone on a desk. It has additional springs which facilitates smooth opening experience. Samsung’s has also add the ‘sweeper’ technology to remove any dust or dirt.
Speaking about the internal specifications of the phone, it appears that the phone will operate based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 Plus chipset. The phone will also come with 5G capability. The battery powering the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 is 4500mAh. The phone’s user interface is based on Android 10. What is more exciting is that the Galaxy Z Fold 2 comes with the fast charging capability. The different connectivity options offered by the new Samsung Galaxy phone include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac/Yes. It has GPS and the USB charge port is Type-C. The phone also has different sensors like the ambient light sensor, accelerometer, gyroscope, the compass or magnetometer, fingerprint sensor and a proximity sensor. If you want to unlock your phone, you can make use of its face unlock feature.
By giving importance to rectifying the mistakes that were there in the previous foldable phones, Samsung is reinstating its making foldable phones the phones of the future and it seems like that it has debuted in that area by the launch of the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2.
