Samsung is rumored to be working on a new foldable smartphone and several rumors suggest that it will be unveiled at Samsung’s upcoming Unpacked event in February, alongside the company’s Galaxy S11 series phones. A new report claims that the Motorola Razr-like Samsung foldable smartphone might launch before the Galaxy S flagship series. The company is in talks with three of the country’s major mobile carriers to release the Galaxy Fold 2 in February. However, it is not yet confirmed whether the phone will go on sale in markets outside South Korea before the end of February.
The live images of the device that had surfaced online recently suggest it will have a flat display with relatively “thick” bezels and just two rear-facing cameras. Also, the upcoming foldable phone is expected to have a clamshell form factor with a hole-punch display.
Not much is known about the hardware specs of the Galaxy Fold successor, however, it is rumored that the phone will have the same 108MP primary camera and 5x optical zoom lens as the Galaxy S11. As far as the pricing is concerned, the phone will be priced at around $1,000 which is far more affordable than its predecessor.
The Yonhap News Agency report states that after unveiling the Galaxy Fold 2 in South Korea, the company would give more details on its new foldable smartphone at the Unpacked event.
