While the entire world is at home, not defying the lockdown and helping each other out in the best ways possible, we all know a lot of things which were scheduled to happen in 2020 have been cancelled or postponed. Many smartphones manufacturers have already postponed their upcoming launches or strictly sticking to online launches for the same.
But on a positive note, this is a good time to do the homework well and make no noise, like Samsung has been doing. The Korean smartphone giant is reportedly working on the next version of the Samsung Galaxy Fold and if rumours are to be believed, the upcoming fold will be cheaper and better in many ways.
Samsung Galaxy Fold
The upcoming Galaxy Fold is expected to be priced at $1780 to $1880 which is a significant dip compared to the Fold which retailed for $1980. The new Fold is expected to be unveiled alongside the new Galaxy Note series, somewhere around the month of August.
Additionally, if the reports are true, the upcoming Galaxy Fold will also carry support for the S-pen stylus. The main display is expected to measure 7.59-inch which is an increment from the previous 7.3-inch and is said to carry a 1689 X 2213 screen resolution. The display will also have an ultra-thin coating of glass, something that Samsung has been advertising a lot from the time it launched the Galaxy Z-Flip. The display could also support 120Hz refresh rate.
The secondary screen on the outer face of the Fold will see improvements as well and Samsung could go for a 6.23-inch panel with a resolution of 819 x 2267 and 60Hz refresh rate. The selfie camera could be placed under a punch-hole cutout.
In the camera department, the main sensor will be upgraded to a 64MP sensor and will be flanked by 12MP and a 16MP additional modules. This setup is quite close to Samsung’s triple camera setup on the Galaxy S20 and the S20+. Last but not least, the Galaxy Fold 2 or whatever Samsung decided to name it will also bring in support for 5G like Samsung’s latest flagship releases. However, a hit at lower onboard memory sounds right which will keep the manufacturing costs low and thus make it affordable?
