Samsung has been keen to try new things out in the market and be the innovator in the game as compared to the rest of the pack. It came out with folding phones with the Galaxy Fold being the first one of the bunch. It was an interesting concept which captivated users and their attention, but it wasn’t a practical purchase at all as the folding mechanism failed to provide incentives that would make it a good enough deal to spend 2,000 dollars on a smartphone. Apart from that, the folding hinge wasn’t sturdy, the crease in the middle looked ugly and the notch situation was downright hideous for a flagship device. Now they’re trying to make the Fold a decent device, as the Z Fold 2 was unveiled officially by the Korean giant on their social media.
Samsung says that the company has completely revamped the device’s mechanics from the ground up, as CAM was used to develop the hinge so it would be a much improved version from the predecessor. The notch on top has also been exchanged for the punch hole cutout that Samsung itself popularized, and it looks a lot better now. They’ve also used a new Ultra Thin Glass technology to make sure it bends easily without making as much of a visible crease as before. An AMOLED, 120Hz display is installed on the front which we can expect to be top-notch. Snapdragon 865+, 12GB LPDDR5 RAM and a 4,500 mAh battery cell supporting 25W fast charging are just some of the specs on this monster.
Samsung didn’t have much luck with the original Galaxy Fold, but they can hope that this one will be much more appealing to the general audience, and will get them more sales that their previous model.
