With the launch of Galaxy Fold last year Samsung started the new generation of smartphones. Galaxy Fold was the representative of the future of the smartphone. So the Galaxy Fold 2 is one the most anticipated phone of this year.
Analyst Ross Young from Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) has revealed the specification of the device through a series of tweets. According to the leak, the Galaxy Fold 2 will have a 7.59-inch Dynamic AMOLED display with a 2213 x 1689 pixel resolution. The display could feature a 120Hz refresh rate. The backplane technology will be based on LTPO, or low-temperature polycrystalline oxide, which will enable variable refresh rate and better energy efficiency. The main display will have a Galaxy Z Flip-like hole-punch cutout in the top right corner for the main display camera.
The front (secondary) display will be 6.23″ with a resolution of 2267×819. It will have a refresh rate of 60Hz. This display will be a Dynamic AMOLED display with a backplane of LTPS or low-temperature polycrystalline silicon. LTPS is very similar to LTPO but with reduced efficiency. The secondary display also has a punch-hole camera.
The Galaxy Fold 2 is said to feature Ultra-Thin Glass (UTG) on the folding screen, like the Galaxy Z Flip. The UTG will still be covered by an improved plastic layer for better scratch resistance and S-Pen support. So yes Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 will support S-Pen.
Galaxy Fold 2 is expected to come in 4G and 5G models. Rumors claim Samsung will either use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 865 or the upcoming 865+ chipset. It may have 12GB of RAM and 256GB and 512GB storage variants.
