Samsung is set to launch its Galaxy Fold 2 foldable phone in the next few months and it is said that it will add screen size and possibly use ultrathin glass (UTG).
A new report from South Korean media has revealed some key specs for the Galaxy Fold 2 display. The Galaxy Fold 2 will reportedly have a 7.7-inch internal display, which is 0.4 inches larger than the Galaxy Fold’s 7.3-inch display. However, the external display will jump from 4.6 inches for the Galaxy Fold to 6.23 inches for the Galaxy Fold 2.
The 7.7-inch display will have a resolution of 2213 x 1689, an aspect ratio of 11.8:9, and the top nothc will be replaced by perforations. The 6.23-inch external display will have a resolution of 2,267 x 819 pixels, a refresh rate of 24.9:9 x 60Hz, and the front-facing camera will also be punched.
More importantly, the Galaxy Fold 2 has a 7.7-inch screen that supports a 120Hz refresh rate, and Samsung debuted a 120Hz display in the Galaxy S20 series.
The Galaxy Z Flip comes with ultra-thin glass, making it the world’s first smartphone with a foldable glass display, and this report confirms that Samsung will bring the same display technology to the Galaxy Fold 2.
The report also said Samsung plans to produce about 3 million Galaxy Fold 2 units and has begun ordering components for the device, which is expected to begin production in July. Samsung is reportedly targeting 300,000 Galaxy Fold 2 units per month.
We know that Galaxy Fold 2 will debut alongside the Galaxy Note 20 at Unpacked online on Aug 5. It is also reported that the two devices will be available on August 20.
