Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 will get a 7.7-inch display
Galaxy Fold 2 will be an improved version of its predecessor, and with these improvements will come display updates that include a larger screen combined with a higher refresh rate. Some design changes are also expected – for example, Samsung plans to include thinner frames in the Galaxy Fold 2. Let's take a closer look at these details and find out what we are talking about.
Details from Ice Universe have emerged on Twitter, saying that the Galaxy Fold 2 will have a 7.7-inch internal display with a 3.8-mm frame. This means that the Galaxy Fold 2 may have smaller dimensions due to reduced frames. What's more, Ice Universe mentions that the front-facing camera built into the display will only take up 4.8 mm of space. This will give users extra screen space when they start using the main display.
The smaller front camera built into the screen will also become less distracting due to its smaller size. Unfortunately, due to technical limitations, the S Pen will not be supported in Galaxy Fold 2. However, other advantages override this disadvantage, such as the 120 Hz refresh rate. In addition, the upcoming folding flagship will be slightly more durable than the original Galaxy Fold, thanks to the use of UTG or Ultra-Thin Glass technology (ultra-thin protective glass), which is also present on the Galaxy Z Flip.
Other updates include improvements to the main camera, though the Galaxy Fold 2, though will reportedly get the same configuration as the Galaxy S20 Plus, rather than the Galaxy S20 Ultra.
As for the official presentation of the Galaxy Fold 2, it is rumored that Samsung will hold an online event Unpacked on August 5. This is the same date that the Galaxy Note 20 family and a host of other products will reportedly be showcased.
